Almost Everybody Farts - I'm Giving One Away!

When you see the title for this book review and giveaway and the cover, you may wonder a bit, but allow me to say, I was invited to review this book. At first I almost didn't, but then I thought, well, my grandsons would likely enjoy this book, so I decided to do so.

They are eight, five and three years old and they did laugh quite a bit when we read it. So, today I am sharing with you my review of Almost Everybody Farts!

Almost Everybody Farts

Publisher - Sterling Children's Books
Ages - 3+

  • Easy-to-read text

Sterling Children's Books says; "Grandmas fart. Teachers fart. Terrifying creatures fart. But . . . is there someone who DOESN’T fart? With sly humor, this fun picture book looks at a subject which is sure to make children laugh: farting. With silent farts, farts like horns, and rainbow farts from unicorns, Almost Everybody Farts comically captures the gassy scene. And only one person insists she’s fart-free: MOM! But is she? Kids will insist on reading this rhyming story again and again."

Even my oldest grandson enjoyed Almost Everybody Farts - there was lots of laughing and my five-year-old grandson enjoyed being able to read it as well. Children - especially boys - will enjoy this book!

I'm very happy to say not only did Sterling Children's Books send one Almost Everybody Farts for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only). If you are over the age of 18 and would like to enter this drawing - which will be on August 12017, please comment below to tell me something your grandchildren do/say which makes you laugh - my grandsons often say funny things, but one recent was when the three-year-old said; "I'm allergic to magic beans.Finding this interesting, surprising and quite funny, I asked him why he thought he was allergic to them. He said; "They make me grow, grow, grow all the way to space and I hate them!"

  1. Our grandson would love this book! I laughed when I saw the title. He says so many things that make me laugh. Recently, we read a book with a line in it that said, "Put a lid on it" to a noisy bird. Well, now he repeats that phrase all the time. He is just four! I follow on Google Friend Connect, I follow on Facbook, I receive emails from you and I shared the post on FB.

  2. The other day when we were eating dinner, one of the younger kids went under the table and started messing with my daughter's legs. She yelled, "Someone's haunting my leg!"
    We couldn't stop laughing.
