This edition of Who Pooped in the Park?follows Michael and Emily on a trip to Nevada’s Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Michael tries to deal with his fear of mountain lions as Mom and Dad teach him and his sister about the wildlife in the park—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 Red Rock edition features:
- Mountain Lions
- Desert Bighorn Sheep
- Wild Burros
- Pack Rats
- Desert Tortoises
- Northern Flickers
- Great Horned Owls
- Mojave Green Rattlesnakes
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.
