A magical moment in any outdoor adventure is to find . . .
Who left this behind?
SCAT–BE–DOO–DOO is a new special P.L.A.Y. combination of two things:
SCAT = animal poop (aka feces)
SCAT = the improvised singing of nonsense syllables in jazz music like bop-doo-wop.
What to do when you find the poo out in the wild:
1-Watch Your Step!
2-Look with your eyes not your hands (no touch!)
3-Draw or take a snapshot of the poop to later decipher which field or forest animal left behind this special clue.
4- Get curious if you like and poke it with a stick to try to figure out what this animal ate. Can you see fur, seeds, grasses, or ???
BONUS P.L.A.Y. – Sing your own verse of SCAT–BE–DOO–DOO to celebrate discovering which animal has passed this way before you!
The authors write in the introduction:
“(this book assists with) . . . the joy of reading stories written in the soil and snow. The fun of nature’s challenge is solving the mysteries written on the trail.”
I highly recommend picking up a copy for your nature library! ~ Karen ;0)
