Gross Stuff That Helps Nature Work
Barf, poop and science...you'll find it all here! Did you know that honey is really bee barf? That grizzly bears sometimes eat rotting meat? Or that turkey vultures poop on their own feet? Nature's Yucky! uses natural fascination with the stinky, the gross, and the icky to help children learn more about wild animals and why critters behave as they do.
Younger children will love having the book read to them, while older children and adults will also enjoy reading "More About Nature's Yucky Animals," which has in-depth information about the featured animals. Kids of all ages will get a kick out of learning to identify the droppings of various animals by making -- and eating! -- "scat cookies." Lovely paintings balance out the "yuckiness," reminding us that nature is not just disgusting, but beautiful, too.
