Hmm. Well, I have to admit that this covered a subject that I can honestly say I never gave a single thought to, but I really can't imagine that this is a subject that would be of interest to kids. When I was done reading this to my niece and nephew they were completely silent. It was like this book made no impression on them at all. I have to give it points for the unique topic, but really, I'm just not convinced this book really speaks to kids.
