Poop! Ewwww!

No, don't say "Ewwww." Ask, "Whose poop is that?" This simple, and yes, charming book asks this question about seven examples of animal poop. By investigating visual clues, young readers can learn to identify the animal through its droppings. For instance, find a sample of poop with bits of bone and tufts of hair. Turn the page to learn it came from a fox!

Kelsey Oseid's illustrations are both accurate and beautiful. Backmatter includes further information about the poop and what scientists can learn from an animal's droppings.

Great book, leaves no cliff hangers. You see which poop belongs to who. Also, surprises! Do not be fooled by the cover, maybe what you see isn't poop!

Fun facts in the back. The facts are about poop, of course.
