Book Review and Giveaway

Sleeping Bear Press sent me a great book to review, Track that Scat! by Lisa Morlock and Carrie Anne Bradshaw.

It's a really cute book.  The premise is that Finn, the girl in the story, goes for a walk in the woods with her dog.  While she's walking she sees animal tracks and steps in animal poo.  Through the process Finn sees all sorts of animals from the woods, a rabbit, raccoon, skunk, goose and more.  Information breaks away from the story that you can ignore or read.

The information tells about each particular animal's scat (poo) and their tracks.  It also tells about the animals habits as well as other interesting facts for example did you a rabbit eats it's own poo??

Any educator who is teaching about animals from the woods will likely enjoy the book.

I've been an educator long enough to know that any book that talks about poo, burping or other bodily functions, although disgusting, is a book the kids love.

There is a great sing song rhyme to the words that makes it fun to read and fun to listen too.

All in all, it's a cute book and would make a great addition to any child's or teacher's library.

Would you like to win a copy of the book?  Just leave a comment here on this post.
