Product description

Designed to educate and entertain, this charming tale of Michael, Emily, and their family explores the scat and tracks of the Colorado Plateau that covers parts of Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico.Little Michael is terrified of wild animals, especially mountain lions. His sister Emily enjoys tormenting her little brother. Wildlife can be elusive, and both are disappointed when, at first, they don’t encounter many animals in the park. The kids quickly learn, however, that there are animals all around, and these creatures leave behind scat and tracks. Before long, the kids are able to distinguish antelope ground squirrel tracks from mountain lion tracks and coyote scat from desert cottontail scat.Wildlife facts are featured in “The Straight Poop” boxes. Colorful illustrations of animals and their scat and tracks supplement this lively tale, and a quick-reference chart at the back will make field identification a breeze!
