A Book and a Hug Blog Review of Poop Detectives
Want to go on a poop hunt? Grab your coat and let’s go see if we can find some poop. Maybe we’ll get lucky and our scat dog will find tiger poop or rhino poop or even whale poop?
Yes, filled with plenty of pictures of poop ranging from the prehistoric human poop to the globs floating in the ocean waters, this is a fact-filled, fascinating and gloriously gross informational text that explores every second grade boys favorite topic in a scientific way.
Do they really find prehistoric human poop? Real poop? What do they do with it? Why do they want to put glitter in rhino poop? It’s amazing what you’re about to discover about scientists and the power of poop.
Many of the photographs feature women veterinarians and scientists at work. An index, a list of science words (glossary) and a science lab feature round out the fun for readers who want to dig a little deeper into the world of poop.
This is going to be a reluctant reader favorite. This one series may turn the library into these children’s favorite place on Earth.
