Most kids have wondered what happens to the poo that seems to magically disappear from the bowl of the toilet. Thanks to Jo Lindley and this one-of-a-kind non-fiction picture book, kids need to wonder no more.
Every time you flush the toilet you start an incredible chain of events. Your poo goes on a rather impressive journey that involves sorting, cleaning and filtering. Some of it ends up on farms, some of it gets turned into electricity, some of it is turned into gas to power cars, and the rest, well it ends up back where it started of course - luckily in a slightly cleaner version that we call water…
Where Does My Poo Go? follows a poo on its epic journey from toilet to treatment plant to repurposing and finally back to toilet. Readers are flushed into a world of smelly sewers as they get to meet the brave people whose job it is to keep things flowing freely underground and have to break-down the ‘fatbergs’. It’s then on to the sewage treatment plant to learn about how water and poo is cleaned and separated using a variety of processes before it gets recycled and used for many surprising things including powering your TV.
Colourful pages, easy to follow diagrams and choice scientific words help explain the poo journey to readers. A child-friendly glossary provides further clarity to many terms including bacteria, digestion, filter, methane, sewage plant and turbine.
This highly illustrated and informative read is fun, educational and very entertaining, readers will be amazed to learn just what happens every time they ‘flush’. Guaranteed gross-out giggles.
