Review: "The Butt Book" by Artie Bennett


If you are looking for a way to boost your children's enthusiasm about summer reading, why not throw a few fun and zany books into the mix?  I think I lucked out because our 7 year old son loves to read all kinds of books.  I often see him smiling while reading storybooks, but I rarely hear him laugh out loud.  The Butt Book by Artie Bennett is one of the few books that makes my son laugh again and again.

This book, whimsically illustrated by Mike Lester, is cleverly and tastefully written in easy-to-read rhyming text.  It tells children everything about butts, including the various shapes, names, uses for the butt, and much more.



My son had read this book previously on his own, but I had asked him to read it aloud to me.  He could not do so without laughing and giggling.  He also made sure to point out to me the most interesting looking butts in the book.  This book was so much fun to read out loud that I might inquire whether the twins' preschool teacher would like to have it read for a special guest story time.  Perhaps I can even have our 7 year old be the special guest reader?
