Who Pooped in Central Park? Scat and Tracks for Kids by Gary D. Robson


Who Pooped in Central Park
Scat and Tracks for Kids
By Gary Robson

Learning to identify an animal by their scat and tracks helps one connect with nature. Reading through Who Pooped in Central Park you realize that even in the busy city of New York  there's lots of wildlife to be found. In this adventure, Emma, Jackson, Lily, and Tony take a stroll through the park meeting different folks, each who passes a bit of  knowledge on to them. The first person they meet is Lawton. Lawton teaches the kids about rats. Off to the side, in The Straight Poop box (a box that shares random information pertaining to the story) Gary encourages the reader to clean up after themself by throwing trash away and reminds young readers to never approach a rat despite how friendly it may appear. Back to Lawton, so Lawton teaches the kids to identify rats and then a muskrat is spotted. Lawton enlightens us that a muskrat isn't a rat despite the word rat being used in it's name. The kiddos wander away from Lawton and head on their way. They discover many other interesting animals along the way, of course,  identifying them by their scat and tracks.
