Timmy is a little boy that likes to play hockey. It is his first day playing and he needs to make a good impression so that coach Kip picks him for the team.
Timmy’s best friend is little Fart. This little green illustrated figure stinks everywhere he goes. He wishes to follow Timmy to support him. Timmy does not wish to be embarrassed by little Fart, so he asks him to stay away.
Fart still shows up at Timmy’s game and as he observes Tim struggling, he blows this massive fart causing everyone to stop playing and laughing as they blame each other.
I found this book to be incredibly funny. My favorite part was where Timmy says: “ There is nothing like having your fart following you around, stinking up the place.”
I believe children learn easier with funny topics and for this book, although its title and story may be funny, it also demonstrates the need to support children. Especially in the times where they feel nervous, out of place and in need of a distraction. This allows them to come out of their zone of fear because at the end of the day they too have feelings and need love and support.
