Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Sure, there are plenty of other books about scats and tracks. My goal was to make one that was fun for kids. They'll enjoy reading about Michael and Emily's vacation and get all kinds of fascinating trivia from the "Straight Poop" sidebars scattered throughout the book, and they'll learn while they do it! Eli and I did our best to make it fun, and the team of rangers and naturalists that proofread the book kept it accurate. If your children ever wondered what critter left that pile of droppings, then they need a copy of "Who Pooped in the Park?"

Then the parents take the kids on a hike to teach them how to find out which animals have been where by identifying all kinds of marks, especially scat (POOP!!!).

Lighthearted and fun, this book manages to be highly informative without bogging down.

I grew up wanting to be a "true" woodsman, but every book on tracking and animal scat identification I have ever seen reads like a college textbook -- certainly no fun for a kid to read. This one is different.

Written as the story of a family visiting Yellowstone Park, "Who Pooped?" hits all the bases. The kids learn how to identify the scat of the major critters in the park -- and, for example, why wolf scat has hair in it. They also learn how to identify the tracks of those same animals, with helpful details, like how to tell the difference between the tracks of elk and moose. The author has a great knack for making it all sound so simple and easy, while giving readers a great deal of information.

The most helpful stuff is the "background" on the animals. When you learn that mountain lions can keep their claws retracted, it is suddenly much easier to tell the difference between a wolf track and a mountain lion track. There are little tidbits all through the book, called "Straight Poop," with enough expert information to please parents who want a trip to be educational. And the story of the traveling family is cute and easygoing.

I must admit to an irresistible temptation to ask the author for a companion volume, one on identifying the tire tracks of monster SUVs in the parking lots of Yellowstone. Of course it should be titled "Who Parked in the Poop?"

This book truly will help my grandchildren identify scat and tracks. I would give this book a full five stars except it begins with a little boy who is frightened of grizzly bears. My 6-year-old granddaughter doesn't need any suggestion of being afraid of grizzlies. Her older brothers (ages 12 and 13) will adore the in-depth discussion of poop! We'll need to set aside several hours for tracking while we're at Yellowstone.

My friend recommended this book to me since we're headed to Yellowstone NP. I can see where you can really use this book to see what kind of wildlife is around you at the park. I appreciated that it was written for specifically the animals found in Yellowstone. Clever idea and a very informative book. I'd get the other "Who Pooped in..." books for our other travels in the future.

I bought this book for my niece about the area we live in. She loves it and I bought one for my nephew too. It is a good book to learn about what animals are around and how to know what they are based on the droppings! Plus, kids love books about poop!ha

Back in 2005 my mom and step-dad got the book Who Pooped in the Park? by Gary D. Robson for my kids.

It’s the story of a family on a trip to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. The son is afraid he’ll be eaten by a grizzly bear, but his parents explain how there aren’t any grizzly bears left in Colorado. Then the parents take the kids on a hike to teach them how to find out which animals have been where by identifying all kinds of marks, especially scat (POOP!!!).

Very cute children's book and very tastefully written. ALSO they print one of these for the Smoky Mountains that is just as good if not better.
