    1 thought on “The Real Poop on Pigeons: TOON Level 1

    1. OK, OK, OKKKKK!!! Pigeons!?! Seriously? A book about pigeons? I meanpigeons!!! Aren't they just rats with wings? Heck no! Pigeons can fly faster than car and father than a small airplane! They've played a vital role in history. Heck, even Picasso named his daughter after them! Kevin McCloskey, author of We Dig Worms, comes back to Toon Books with well-researched facts, sense of humor, and fun visual style to tell us aboutpigeons. Kevin tells us the story of pigeons through a group of young child [...]

    2. After reading this, my daughter went from asking, "Mommy, why are you obsessed with pigeons this week?" to asking, "Mommy, can we have some pigeons?" The answer to the first question is that I was reading about Darwin's obsession with the selective breeding of pigeons in The Origin of Species. I had no idea that so many types of pigeons exist beyond the common ones we see in cities. Breeders have paired off pigeons with various desirable attributes until we have hundreds of very distinct beautif [...]

    3. Told in easy to read text with realistic and attractive paintings of birds (especially pigeons) and elderly adults, gives an effective contrast to the cartoon like whimsical children in pigeon costumes. The vehicle of pigeon clad children sharing important and surprising facts about them is clever and fun. Who knew that pigeons carried the first "airmail" or that Picasso's daughter "Paloma" was named after the Spanish word for pigeon. The Real Poop on Pigeons is formatted in a supremely effectiv [...]

    4. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher at a conference and met the author, who signed my book. I loved pigeons as a kid. My mum would take me to the zoo and I paid more attention to the pigeons than the animals at the zoo. So this book, though aimed at kids, seemed right up my alley. A book just about pigeons? Yes!I liked this book. Probably good for kids who are in kindergarten/first grade if they were to read it themselves; I think younger kids would enjoy having it [...]

    5. Sort of a silly title and premise, right? But really a sweet, lovely, funny tribute topigeons, of all things! And, a nice soft launch into the world of graphic novels for the youngest of young graphic novel readers!

    6. This is a great little nonfiction book about pigeons that blends beautiful illustrations, fun facts, and some humor. I'd pair pieces of it with Don't let the pigeon drive the bus or any bird themed storytime.

    7. Delightfully strange and easy read for a new reader. It actually made me want to get a pigeon. And, more importantly, to read this to my two year old niece.

    8. I enjoyed We Dig Worms! so it wasn't really surprising I would enjoy this as well. Pigeons are gross and I still don't like them despite learning fascinating things about them!

    9. Hey, it's fun if you like pigeons. It's a little silly at the start and end, gives some basic facts, and has cute art. If you want lots of information, this is not the book to go to. Rather, it is a way to introduce small children to their very first nonfiction books in a playful way.

    10. Learn many interesting facts about pigeons in this cute book. Didn't realize Picasso loved them so much.

    11. Any book with the word Poop in the title is automatically a hit with my 5 year old. This book featured a mix of info on pigeons, including biology, history, breeding, and even Picasso, without being too long for my kindergartener. A glossary would have been nice, as my child would have liked more detail on things mentioned in the story such as coops and crop milk.

    12. The book was cool, but I still rather think that they are rats with wings, albeit, much nicer rats with wings.Amazing facts and art. And if a sequel about squirrels comes out, that would be terrific.

    13. I really like the approach taken - information delivered while trying to convince us that pigeons are more than rats with wings. A little humorous, too. Great comic-styling for early grades and easy reading.

    14. Children in pigeon costumes is weird and hilarious! Lots of interesting facts about pigeons. As with the first, my favorite part is the beautifully painted word bubbles. It's weird, I know, but I'll just stare at them. Met the author at ALA in Boston and he's a real nice guy :).

    15. Because of course there is a book about pigeons. For children. Depicting children dressed as pigeons. Because of course. Recommended.

    16. Includes some interesting pigeon facts (breeds, crop milk) and history (mail carrying), but mislabels wing parts as secondary and primary "wings" instead of "feathers." Nice illustrations of the different species/breeds of pigeons, but the kids in the pigeon costumes were creepy.

    17. A pretty and appealing book explains this familiar bird in a whole new light. A grumpy older man who hates pigeons learns some cool facts from kids dressed in pigeon costumes. Kids will like it and will hopefully learn something, too.

    18. As someone who HATES birds, especially pigeons, I felt like this book might have been written especially for me. After reading the book, I still hate pigeons, but have a great appreciation for them as a species and what they are capable of.
