This edition of Who Pooped in the Park?follows Michael and Emily on a trip to Big Bend National Park in Texas, on the Mexican border. Michael tries to deal with his fear of coyotes 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 Big Bend edition features:
- Mountain Lion
- Desert Cottontail Rabbit
- Black-Tailed Jackrabbit
- Desert Bighorn Sheep
- Pie-Billed Grebe
- Sidewinder Rattlesnake
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.
