Does a Bulldozer Have a Butt?
Green Eggs and Ham meets Everyone Poops in this laugh-out-loud story that asks—and answers—the burning question in every kid’s life.
Does a scarecrow have a butt?
Yep, you stuff him with a straw one.
And does a crayon have a butt?
Nope, but it can surely draw one.
This silly, funny, clever book will be the most quoted text in all of elementary school.
Over the course of a long walk across a city, one curious kid needs to know: “Does it have a butt?” Everything from sheep to ghosts to dinosaurs is subjected to this all-important question, and Dad is a never-ending source of answers. On a laugh-out-loud father-child ramble, we come to see that every butt, from a bullfrog’s to a zombie’s, has its own distinctive, and distinctively hilarious, quality.
LAUGH-OUT-LOUD FUNNY: It’s impossible to find a kid who doesn’t giggle at the word “butt.” The repetition of the word, the varied assortment of butts, and the clever rhymes make this a book that both parents and children will return to over and over again.
A SNEAKY WAY TO TEACH ABOUT CONTEXT: The book isn’t simply a repetition of one joke or word. Instead, it offers a crafty way of talking about what things mean in different contexts.
SILLY AND SWEET, NOT GROSS: Butt jokes can potentially cross a line and become offensive or insensitive, but the tone and choices throughout this book are sweet and innocent, making it a unique, accessible option for parents and educators who want to normalize the asking of difficult questions.
COUNT THE BUTTS! This book will change how you see the world: Not only will you start wondering about all inanimate objects’ butts, you’ll start seeing them everywhere! There are nearly 200 butts in the illustrations that aren’t even mentioned in the text. Keen-eyed young readers will delight in the most hilarious seek-and-find they could ever imagine!
