Farting Four-Toed Troll

By Lavelle Carlson

Poop! Fart! These are the words that can be so embarrassing for parents and grandparents. And, it is certainly a headache for preschooler and early elementary teachers to try to instill the inappropriateness in their young students. Well, Farting Four-Toed Troll gives a great opportunity for parents and teachers to talk about these words in a way that is more appropriate. Introduce the book title and say, “Hmmm, should we say Farting Four-Toed Troll or Christmas Troll? I wonder how the Norwegian or Swedish troll would feel if we called him a farting troll”. You can also introduce manners during the reading of the book as the troll says, “Excuse me” after he lets off gas. Was there a mother troll who thanked him for using his manners? Always talk about kindness to children and different words that are “kind” words that make people feel good.
