Children will love becoming experts on excrement! From a pile of cow manure in a field to a huge murky cloud of whale feces in the ocean, there’s a lot of poop being made every day. Every animal makes poop, but did you know that this stinky stuff can actually be useful? Ranging from food to building materials to fuel and even medicine, The Scoop on Poop uncovers the secret world of one of the world’s ickiest substances. This new Science Slam! series will engross readers—and gross them out! Each of the six books is expertly crafted to meet early elementary and science curriculum standards, as well as introduce children to bizarre and interesting facts. Innovative, grade-appropriate activities and experiments, critical-thinking questions, and fascinating fact boxes will hold readers’ interests. These features will also introduce children to two fundamental components of scientific inquiry: making observations and drawing inferences. And, best of all, the activities are fun!

Booklist Review for Poop Eaters

This study, one of six in the certain-to-be-popular Scoop on Poop series, begins with the cecotropes that little fuzzy bunnies excrete and then eat, and ends with a truly memorable photo of pooping whales. In between, Lawrence explains why certain animals eat poop: rodents and cassowaries to give nutrients a second pass through their digestive systems, baby elephants to add helpful digestive bacteria from a parent, dung beetles to feed themselves and their offspring, and leopard tortoises to supplement a calcium-poor diet with the ground-up bones in hyena stool. Anatomical diagrams join big, bright, labeled color photos to provide cogent visuals. A closing activity (requiring only paper and colored pencils!) reinforces the theme that it’s all part of nature’s food chain. Science education of the alimentary sort, with large helpings of “gross!”
