We Toot! is about a young girl who breaks all norms and admits to farting in front of her friends! She is not embarrassed about it either! She states, “I swear it was me, fart all of the time. I’m not ashamed of this body of mine.” This book teaches little ones to embrace our bodies and its functions and view them as “wonders, each with its own quirks.” It’s a wonderful book for young children that can trigger conversation about many topics including social etiquette, body awareness, diversity and embracing our imperfections! As you are reading this book, focus on the different characters perspectives and how it changes throughout the book. As a parent share your own experiences and ask your child about their own!
