Whose Poop Is That? - a bookwrap

Yewwww!!! What did I just step in?    Ohhhhh noooooo.... I know exactly what it is.  I wonder where that came from?  Today's book might just give you the answer you are looking for.  



by Darrin Lunde, illustrated by Kelsey Oseid

Age Range: 3 - 7

Unwrapping some illustrations for you...




About the book...

Kid's will love this book!   Anything about poop or pee is an instant hit and kids, being curious, want to find out all they can about such "gross" body functions.  

Lunde asks the question, "Whose poop is that? " Then through text and illustrations answers that question.   He has chosen seven kinds of animals to highlight: fox, African elephant, panda bear, owl, Galapagos tortoises, gull and the extinct ground sloth.     

He exposes the animal's food habits and the end results coming out the other "end".  For example...

“Whose poop is that? It has a bunch of splinters in it,” Lunde asks, opposite what looks like a pile of pickles. The answer: a panda. “A panda eats mostly bamboo,” he continues. “A panda has to spend most of its day eating in order to get enough energy.”

He cleverly has included at the back of the book some further information, "The Scoop on Poop", and "Animal Poop Facts."   The illustrations are done in simple pen and ink and gives the reader a greater understanding of the subject matter.   Two fun facts he includes in poop facts are:

"A rabbit sometimes eats its poop in order to digest its food twice", and a wombat's poop is square."   

Who knew?  Poop identification is very, very interesting indeed.
