In “Uncle Bob Poops in a Bag”, a little girl’s favourite uncle undergoes surgery and has a new colostomy. This might seem like a narrow-market story, but the interaction between Sarah and her mother demonstrates a unique opportunity for modelling to parents on how to talk to your young child about difficult subjects. Sarah has an open, expressive nature, and this narrative story focusses on her acceptance of a new idea about her uncle and how easily children can adapt with a matter-of-fact, inclusive approach by their parents and family. This is a gentle story with just two characters speaking – Sarah, a six year old girl, and her mother. The illustrations are lifelike and colourful and show an expressive range of emotions on the faces of Sarah, her mother, and Uncle Bob. This is a unique and honest story with great potential to open up discussions with children about a range of bodily differences. This story is an opportunity to put into practice the idea of teaching our children to be compassionate and empathetic.
