My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book was pretty interesting. I loved learning all about the different kinds of poo. I know that sounds pretty strange, but it was quite fascinating. I never knew that Sloths creep down from trees to poo or that wombat's poo is cube-shaped. It was also cool to learn about what they do with all that poo at the zoo and how it can help the environment. It is a book that kids will find super funny and interesting at the same time. A great book for schools and home.
