Waste not, want not.

Poop gets a bad rap, but it's really very cool and useful. Animals use poop in many different ways: to trick predators and prey, send messages, feed themselves and their babies, build homes, mark their territories, and more.

Young readers will discover why rabbits, hamsters, pigs and gorillas eat their own feces (gross!), why some ground-nesting birds circle their eggs with poop, and how caterpillars can build umbrellas made of poop to hide under. There are so many ways to use poop, it is a shame to waste it.

Fun facts and amazing photos make this the coolest book about poop on a young scientist's bookshelf.

This book is good for your brain because:

Whether you are an inquisitive adult or a curios youngster - "Get the Scoop On Animal Poop!" is both a hilarious and an educational look at (that's right!) poop!

Featuring lots of illustrations and informative text - "Get The Scoop" is a real page-turner that intelligently explores (for your intense interest) both the mystery and the wonders of animal poo.

Written by Dawn Cusick - This book (IMO) is in no way offensive in its engaging approach to its subject matter (which is, of course, fecal matter).
