Well, of course this book interested my 4-year old!! It was about bugs that eat poop!! One of our nightly reads is "Everyone Poops" so this was the perfect complement! The book had very tasteful and colorful pictures of dung beetles doing their thing. It highlighted the different way dung beetles break down their food and their importance to the ecosystem. The book did a fabulous job of exemplifying a decomposers job in the food chain. I'd like this book for my 9th Grade Science classroom!

This book explains about insects and their poop, what they do with it is shocking.

This books explains all about Dung Beetle's lives and how they're helpful to the environment. This book had real photographs in it, which gave it a very real and factual feel to it. This book was more in a story form rather than just listing facts. It explains why Dung Beetles are important.
