The Butt Book is the funniest book I have ever read. I have to give the author a lot of credit for writing this hilarious book. Yep, I am sure some parents might get offended, but you know what, might as well have kids read a book that will get their attention.

I read the book at least twenty times, enjoying immensely the rhyming on each page. As a former kindergarten teacher, I can see how the book can be used in the classroom to teach students all about rhyming words. Every elementary classroom should have a copy of this book, so it can be used to teach kids about that important part of the human body.

I love the section where the author gives the name of butts in different languages. This is simply awesome. A teacher can use that information to introduce the study of a different culture. Doing so will help expand a child’s horizon and learn to appreciate people from other parts of the world.

There is also the science component to this well-written book. I can only imagine what a science teacher can do to introduce information about the many species of creatures mentioned in the book.

I can visualize how a child will read repeatedly this well-written book, exposing him/her or her to new words. This is what reading is all about, catching a child’s attention from the start, so he or she can fall in love with reading.

The illustrations done by Mike Lester bring further value to this one-of-a-kind book. Bravo! Well done.
