Book Tour: Uncle John's Bathroom Reader For Kids Only! Collectible Edition

Uncle John's Bathroom Reader For Kids Only! Collectible Edition
by Gordon Javna.
Audience/Genre: Childrens, Family.
Publication: April 8th 2014 by Portable Press.
Here is an exciting chance to own the very first Uncle John's Bathroom Reader For Kids Only! in a hardcover edition with all new illustrations! When our younger readers demanded a Bathroom Reader of their own, Uncle John put together this brain-boggling easy-to-read collection of facts, fads, quotes, history, science, origins, pop culture, mythology, humor, and more! Plus it's full of wacky and fun illustrations and Uncle John's famous "running feet" — those fun and fascinating facts on the bottom of every page. Curious young readers will learn about the real Dr. Seuss, baseball superstitions, the birth of The Simpsons, how carnival games are rigged, the history of dining on scorpions and tarantulas, shocking truths about thunder and lightning, and disgusting bodily functions like ear wax production and digestion (and why they're important), and much, much more!

Reviewed by Kelly her husband, and several kids of all ages.

I have had more laughter reading this book with family and in the bathroom. Come on, admit it, sometimes you need something to read! I took it this weekend to Florida to three precious girls. The oldest noticed it right away and mentioned "Oh there it is!" They tried to take it from me when they were at my house last. That was quickly vetoed! I can't part with it, there is still too much to learn and laugh; with all the fun facts, things that are silly, sports, trivia and stuff on every page that you might not notice until you read it again! Our favorite was about farts! Kids love to talk about farts!

Okay, that may have been staged but she was willing to do it while going to the bathroom! After I told her it wasn't necessary, she almost seemed disappointed that I didn't let her get more time with the book!
So, I came back to write up this post for this morning. And Dang it, they stole it from me!! So I can't write the details about the farts!! Revenge will be swift!!

P.S. We also have several of the other Uncle John's books too!!
I am getting the girls' mom to type out the fart page so I can add it to the post this morning.

The life of Gordon “Uncle John” Javna, editor-in-chief and publisher of the Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader series, reads like one of his books. There’s a lot of fun, intriguing—often odd—information lurking around every corner. He went to art school, and then went on to become a musician, real-estate developer, writer, restaurateur, president of a pre-school, brew pub owner, and editor—not all at once, mind you, but he has been all of these things.

Eventually, though, he realized that because of his love of fascinating facts (and being a bathroom reader himself), he was naturally suited, perhaps even destined, to bring the joy of trivia to the world in a fun, informative way. He assumed the pseudonym Uncle John for the Bathroom Reader series and since then, Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader has become the longest-running, most popular series of its kind in the publishing industry. To date, there are more than 15 million Uncle John’s Bathroom Readers in print and his fanatical flock of followers span from Australia to the United Kingdom and beyond.

Guided by their obsession with unusual trivia, amazing origins, and forgotten history, Gordon “Uncle John” Javna and his staff at the Bathroom Readers' Institute have made Uncle John’s Bathroom Readers a must-have for book and gift stores worldwide for over two decades. Gordon continues to expand his porcelain province from his throne room in Ashland, Oregon.
