Poo-Dunit?

Poo-Dunit?

Aronson, Katelyn
$17.99
This rollicking, rhyming tale of animal poo will have children squealing with laughter--even as they learn about forest ecosystems and discover surprising facts about scat.

Sniff, sniff! went Mouse. Whiff, whiff! went Mouse.
"Who left this poo outside my house? I must undo this mystery. Poo-dunit?"

Mouse is dismayed to step outside her house one morning only to discover a giant pile of poo! Who could have done such a dastardly deed? Mouse questions all the animals of the forest, but it's too big to be Squirrel's, too dark to be Coyote's, and too messy to be Deer's. Will Mouse ever track down the culprit--and will she find a way to make the best of this smelly situation? Between giggles at every mention of the word poo, children will learn to identify eight different animals' scat and discover how droppings can help plants to grow, all while enjoying Katelyn Aronson's rhyming text and Stephanie Laberis's expressive animals. Back matter includes a mini "poo-dunit" mystery challenging children to match scat with the correct animal, as well as a note on why poo is precious--and who is responsible for the biggest poo of all.

When I Draw a Panda

Bates, Amy June

"This amusing picture book encourages imagination and individuality." --Booklist

From the acclaimed author and illustrator of The Big Umbrella comes a delightful celebration of creativity and gumption about a girl and her panda that's Calvin and Hobbes meets If You Give a Mouse a Cookie!

Sometimes when they say to draw a perfect circle, mine turn out a little wonky.
I can draw a perfect fluffy cloud, a perfect scoop of ice cream, and a perfect flat tire.
So when I draw a panda, I keep drawing more and more not-perfect circles until I see a panda.
Then I step back and think, Does it need something else? He probably needs a hat, and then he is my panda.

When a girl draws a panda, it comes to life and helps her embrace her own creativity and unique way of seeing the world.
