The other day Kal mentioned that I refer to poo rather a lot. This is, to be fair, true. I just seem to encounter dog poo wherever I go – plus my daughter’s nursery is right next to one of the few parks in Islington where people are allowed to let their dogs off the lead. The streets around it are covered in dogshit.
I think this is a good time to mention this book. It’s basically a science book for kids and tells you things like why poo is brown and why dogs eat other animals’ poo. My old A Level Biology teacher told me that they didn’t eat poo and that I must know some very strange dogs – but actually, there is a proper, scientific reason for dogs eating poo.
It’s more detailed than the book about Microbes so we’re reading a few pages every night.
