9 out of 10 acorns

Everything you could possible want in a book for children that introduces the concept of composting poop and pee.

It has pictures.
it has rhymes.
It has "additional resources,"
and it even has a story line.

Having read Humanure, I'd say this is a great tool to transition towards a more sustainable culture. The only reason it doesn't have 10 acorns is because it would probably be good to have a word of caution (that is uplifting and rhymes) about how you shouldn't touch poop until it is composted. Now that I am on the subject, it this book is going to become to next book on how to go to the bathroom, it might be good to add in something about washing your hands too. What other things do more conventional potty books cover?
And then we all jump out and yell "surprise! we got you this tiny ad!"
