"The Moose With Loose Poops" By Charlotte Cowan, M.D

If you have children, children of any age really, you KNOW how difficult it can be to explain whats going on when tummy problems happen. Be it having loose poops, or the exact opposite, its not easy to explain to a little one whats going on when all they can focus on is how bad their tummy hurts!


Charlottoe Cowan, a doctor decided that this was something that needed to be put into children's terms, so she wrote a book called "The Moose with Loose Poops"


When it showed up today, Andy & I sat down ( with perfect timing!!!) and read about Miles and his tummy troubles.


The pages are glossy, Penelope Neal did beautiful illustrations through out this book. The story reads easily, I would say its best for children over 3 or 4, depending on the level they are at. Although, Andy isn't yet 3, and he nodded along & told me "moose tummy hurts" so even he got it.


"The Moose with Loose Poops" touches on issues from vomiting, to diarrhea. They talk about how one can lead to another, that apples can help the latter of the two, and how important drinking liquids, rest & taking care of yourself is when both of these happen!


It's a sweet book, well written,easy for a child to follow but not boring. It has beautiful pictures and a helpful booklet in the back cover for Mom & Dad to learn more about gastroenteritis.I ended my night last night with Andy asking for "The loose poop Moose book.." as we read it he told me "Oh no, Moose tummy hurts, he's got to take a nap!" It was pretty sweet. just like this book.

Charlotte Cowan has also written books featuring "Dr. Hippo" discussing the topics of colds, sore throats, ear aches, fevers,and now, tummy troubles, just for kids.


One of my readers will get to take home "The Moose with Loose Poops" for themselves!

  4. This book would be great for my two younger children. My son has an enzyme deficincy (sp) where he was born without the sucrase enzyme! He had a rough life until we finally learned of his condition. He was in and out of the hospital for the first 2 years b/c he stopped growing and was loosing weight due to his issue. I really would love to win this book. But if not it's definately one I'm going to Borders for.
