The Lovereading4Kids comment
Some parents may be appalled that a title such as this has been shortlisted for a prestigious award but the award in question is the Blue Peter award, which, not surprisingly is chosen by children. Talk about taking a subject head on! Orang-utans have the smelliest, Bumble be bats the smallest and Mayflies just don’t! This fantastic little book will get even the most reluctant reader enjoying the delights of reading as it lifts the lid on the secret world of faeces and in so doing gives the reader an incredibly enlightening journey involving Human and animal biology. I can guarantee it will be one of the most read (or requested) books on your home book shelf!
Poo by Nicola Davies
Everything you ever wanted to know about faeces, but were too polite to ask...Hippos navigate by it, sloths keep in touch through it, rabbits eat it...and most grown-ups prefer not to mention it at all! However you look at it, poo is probably the most useful stuff on Earth. It comes in all shapes and sizes, and every animal has its own special sort. Find out what it's for, where it goes, what we can learn from it and lots more. A lively and fascinating natural history book.
