It rhymes with Bart: A nice fart book for kids

"It rhymes with Bart" by Tom Skinner and illustrated by Richie Williams, is a book about passing gas. I know some of you may be grossed out by the mere mention if reading a book about farting, nevertheless, this children's book is cleverly done. It takes a little getting used to but you may just find this book enjoyable.

Skinner uses rhyming rather well in this book on farting. I think with the right group of children they may find it funny. This book would be a nice way to ease some of the embarrassing moments of passing gas that children sometimes deal with. I think children will be tickled by the humor.

The illustrations left a lot to be desired but that may have been intentional. It looks like drawings a first grader would make. There was heavy use of primary colors. I feel that the drawings helped to give the feel that a child was narrating the story. I would recommend this book, perhaps during discussions about the body and during science.
