Eating poop is gross! So why do some animals do it? For lots of good reasons!
Male butterflies slurp up poop to give as a gift to females, which makes their eggs stronger. Robins scarf down the poop of young chicks because it's full of undigested nutrients. And baby elephants gobble up the poop from adults to get essential bacteria into their digestive systems. This disgustingly informative book is bursting with lots of surprising information about animals—and digestion!

Such a fun and silly book! Although it is very descriptive so young and old can enjoy and learn something from each page! I also love the colors and illustrations to this book!
As an adult reading this book actually gave me a lot of information. I was honestly not aware that many animals eat their own poop and poo of others. This is an extremely informative book for children. It will not only make them giggle but they will gain knowledge!
This is a perfect picture book for the PK - Grade 1 audience, starting with the "poop" in the title -- sure to catch their attention! The color palette is bold and vivid, while the text balances short sentences with longer descriptive paragraphs providing information. This allows the book to educate both younger audiences and slightly older ones. I know that I learned a ton through reading! Levine also cites their sources at the end of the text, providing an excellent model to the intended audience.
What an adorable and informative book for children (and adults). Lots of information given but in an easy and enjoyable way to digest. Great book for inquisitive little minds.
A truly interesting and delightful book finally answering the question: Why do some animals eat poop? And how many animals eat poop that I didn't know about? And did you know birds pee and poop in the same dropping? And, why do scientists not yet know why dogs eat poop? And, why do some animals need to eat their food twice, once the normal way, and the second time by redigesting their poop? It is really a fascinating book with wonderful illustrations and amazing facts. Just the book for a young male or an old male, 70, like me. Full of fun facts and information on everyone's favorite topic: poop. Our 5 year old granddaughter was visiting for Thanksgiving and she was practicing writing words and one of the words she wrote (unprompted) was: poop. So, there you go!
