shed from their antlers? Or that bobcats use their tongues
as toilet paper? Or that leopard frogs barf so hard their
stomach comes out of their mouth? Nature's Yucky 3, the
third installment in the Nature's Yucky series, dishes up
the disgusting-yet-fascinating explanations for these odd
behaviors as well as those of thirteen other denizens of the
eastern United States.
The book's dazzling full-color illustrations and writing
that begs to be read out loud will mesmerize younger
children, whereas in-depth information in the "More Fun
Facts" appendix will grab the attention of older children
and adults. All readers will enjoy the bird-poop caterpillar
pretzels that can be made from the included recipe. Nature
may be yucky, but Nature's Yucky 3 illuminates how the
nauseating traits of animals help make the natural world a
diverse and interesting place.
