WHAT DO THEY DO WITH ALL THAT POO? by Jane Kurtz

I never thought I’d be reviewing a book with poo in the title, but after reading this book I’m so happy I agreed to do just that! I can imagine reading this nonfiction book during a storytime to 4-7 year olds. The kids won’t be able to stop laughing once they hear the title! But once I settle them down and really begin the story, they will be totally absorbed. The children will learn about the different animal diets, as well as how the animals use their poo in the wild. They will learn about what zoos do to handle the poo, and the many ways it can be used to help the world.
Allison Black’s darling illustrations of different zoo animals jump off every page. Be sure and notice the expressions on their faces, and especially their eyes. Every single friendly animal face gives the reader the idea that mischief is ready to happen at any moment!
This is a book that will be enjoyed at home over and over again, but it’s also a book that is a perfect one to be used in classrooms or with families to prepare for a trip to the zoo. It’s a must buy for every library!
