This edition of Who Pooped in the Park? follows Michael and Emily on a trip to Redwoods National and State Parks in California. Michael tries to deal with his fear of bears as Mom and Dad teach him and his sister about the wildlife in the area--without ever getting close enough to be scared. In their "close encounters of the poopy kind," the family learns about a variety of animals, and readers will become familiar with their tracks and the droppings they leave behind (scats). This Redwoods edition features:
Striped and Spotted Skunks
Northern Flying Squirrel
Great Blue Heron
and, of course, a banana slug
Along with the text and Rob Rath's delightful illustrations, the book includes a sampling of "Straight Poop" sidebars, giving kids extra trivia about the animals and their scats and tracks.
