The Scoop on Poop!

Years ago when we were walking with our son, Rob, along a trail in Australia, he stopped us and told us to look up. In the tree, just a few feet above our heads was a koala snoozing peacefully. Bob and I had walked right under it without seeing it and I wondered how Rob had thought to look up. I asked. He pointed. There just on the edge of the trail was a pile of droppings--poop by any other name. . .

We received our news magazine that comes with our subscription to zoo membership this week and there in big headlines was "The Scoop on Poop!" It's billed as a "one-of-a-kind exhibit." I'll bet it is. It supposedly takes a "tactful approach to the topic" using science as well as humor.

I couldn't help but imagine the faces of kids lighting up when they see the name of the exhibit. It's a traveling exhibit that will be at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo this summer. If you can't get to a zoo near you that has it, there is a book by the same name upon which the exhibit is based (authored by Dr. Wayne Lynch).

I, for one, can't wait to see it--especially with a grandchild.

You're welcome! I did a double take the first time I saw the news and laughed too.
