Overall Editor's Rating

What It Is

Leslie Patricelli's board book Toot is all about something that everybody-kitty, doggy, Daddy, Mommy, and Baby-do: toot, or rather, pass gas. This 24-page book features Patricelli's familiar bald baby character who toots while riding his trike, in music class, and in the tub. And when he toots while running, it sounds like a train.

Is It Fun?

This book offers a frank and very funny look at a certain noisy bodily function and is perfectly suited to the humor level of young kids. It'll probably make Mom and Dad chuckle, too.

Who It’s For

Toot is for ages birth-3.

What To Be Aware Of

Additional board books by Leslie Patricelli include Tickle.
