Editorial Reviews

Review

Technically, the book is superbly organized, and written in a zippy, engaging style that balances fact with fun? any young reader fascinated with prehistoric life will love Jurassic Poop.

The young and the curious will enjoy the presentation of a seemingly infinite amount of information ? as much as the subject matter itself.

Berkowitz’ style is goofy and lighthearted, but there’s plenty of real information ? this is an effectively wacky look at a revealing if odd branch of science.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By boysmom on January 7, 2010
Format: Paperback
I am reading this book with my son and it is all about the science of studying poop fossils but it is written for a
young audience. He is 9 and could probably read alot by himself but enough scientific words make it move quicker to read together. It's a unique way to learn about the past, what dinosaurs and other animals ate and what the world might have been like for those things to be in their diets. It has many #2 jokes or play on words so you have to have a sense of humor about poop, but he is learning about animals what they ate and the changes in environment. He is learning about science and research. He is amazed at what can be learned by what was left behind.
Its very unique to the point that I came on line looking for more books by the author.

I love this! It's too funny. Creative potty humour + dinosaurs = a very entertained 6-year-old boy! And it's very educational to boot - it doesn't make the assumption that kids are too young to actually LEARN things in detail (something that all too many do these days).
