Format: Paperback
With lively illustrations and simple repetition, this is the perfect book to read aloud to children. Plus, it's filled with simple, yet amazing facts about all kinds of southwest desert animals. The list of resources in the back of the book is an extra bonus for budding naturalists. I can't wait to read this during story time at the library where I work...and eat the "Raven-gut Upside Down Cake" with the kids!

Format: Paperback
Nature's Yucky! 2: The Desert Southwest is a softcover picturebook for young readers brimming with amazing - albeit icky! - facts about nature and wildlife of the American Southwest. From the regal horned lizard, which can spit blood from its eyes, to the dung beetles' favorite food (ew!) to the piglike javelina that smells like stinky socks, each animal has its own gross habits or aspects for a reason - for example, javelinas use their musky odor to help keep the herd grouped together. The last few pages offer additional information about the various wild animals mentioned, as well as a recipe for "Raven-Gut Upside Down Cake", a "Nature's Yucky! Blues" song, and a list of further resources. An enlightening book about the ingenuity of nature for children's library collections and inquisitive young people who aren't too easily grossed out. Also highly recommended is the original "Nature's Yucky!"

Nature's Yucky! 2 is a great book for young kids, especially boys that love snakes, snails, frogs etc. It points out some things about each animals that we as humans see as "yucky" but then goes on to explain why this is good for the animal. I have 2 grandsons that absolutely love the book and are like sponges in learning about animals. Cute read plus the kids learn something.

Format: Paperback
My Review: Children will find Nature's Yucky! 2 an interesting book to read, boys especially will love to learn about the different animals and reptiles from the Southwest of America. Learn about the 16 desert creatures and the answers to such scintillating scientific questions asked in the book.

Learn about the Regal Horned Lizards, Camel Crickets, Kangaroo Rats, Sonoran Skinks, Red Satyr Butterflies, Western Hognose Snakes, Common Ravens and many more.

The last few pages offer additional information about the various wild animals mentioned, and also learn how to make a Raven-Gut Upside Down Cake.

Illustration by Rachel Rogge captures the history of each of these desert creatures. I highly recommend this book for all and non animal lovers who don't mind the Yucky.

FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.
