Poop-tastic literacy day

It’s the one, it’s the only, it’s the greatest book around — it’s “Poopendous,” the “number one” book on everything “number two.”

Author Artie Bennett brings his scatological tome to the Staten Island Children’s Museum on Feb. 9 for Literacy Day.

Whether you like it or not, poop happens, and children want to learn about it. Bennett’s newest book teaches kids all about doo-doo, from the droppings of animals big and small, to how humans in different cultures make use of the waste.

So bring your little ones, ages 5 to 7 years old, and share some giggles with Bennett’s rhyming rap about ca-ca, doo-doo, flop, guano, scat, and dung.

Artie Bennett at the Staten Island Children’s Museum on Feb. 9 from noon to 4 pm. Free with museum admission.

Staten Island Children’s Museum [1000 Richmond Terr. at Tysen Street in Randall Manor, (718) 273–2060; www.statenislandkids.org].
