In the process of looking at animal tracking books for a program I'm putting together for kindergarten classes of a local elementary school, I've looked at whatever age-appropriate publications I could find and found this to be the best children's, illustrated, animal track book.

The illustrator does a very nice job accurately portraying the tracks and track patterns of the animals featured, which include white-tailed deer, red fox, gray squirrel, cottontail rabbit, raccoon, chipmunk, and mice - she clearly did her homework. The depictions of the animals in their habitats are a delight. A human element, in the form of children recreating in the scenes, is interwoven throughout, yet is presented in an unobtrusive fashion that lets the animals and their tracks take center stage.

In addition, rather than depict generic plants in the illustrations, her attention to detail goes even further with trees, wildflowers, aquatic plants, and ferns recognizable as a part of woodland plant communities of the NE U.S. And if you look closely, there are little bonus surprises in each scene, such as a bird nest in a tree converted to a mouse nest and assorted critters, including indigenous summer and winter bird species.

The author's text, combined with the illustrations, provides enough clues as to the animals that pass through the scenes depicted without making the book too wordy. The book closes with a very nice and appropriate "Who am I?" description/role of the forest and the life it supports, featured on the preceding pages of the book. The back and front covers are also very attractive and artfully done.

If there is a drawback, it is the relatively small size of the book compared to larger "picture books", but it should be large enough for a group of up to 25 children sitting closely around their teacher for a group reading exercise.

This book will be the primary classroom resource I'll be providing to the teachers I'm working with, in preparation for taking their students outdoors to search for animal tracks and sign in woodlands around their school. I'm very glad to have it as a resource and I think it will benefit the teachers and their students tremendously.

I love the guessing game premise of the book, with the kid on every page observing the animals. I read it to my kindergarteners during our forest biome unit and they LOVED it! I did an animal each day while we convened on the carpet before our morning routine and they each had a turn to guess which animal it was. Super fun!

This is perfect for my 4 year old grandson who is fascinated with the animal tracks he has been finding in the snow in his backyard. Great pictures of different animal tracks and story that gives clues and gives the child a chance to figure out what the animal is. Perfect for my little detective with his magnifying glass and wonderful imagination.

Fun book to share with kids. The kids enjoyed the clues and trying to guess the animal. I liked that the kindle version allowed me to zoom in on the tracks. It would have been better on the kindle edition if we could see the tracks on the screen with the clues. Pictures were okay. I would have liked more or close up of paw/appendage that left the track so we could compare.
Overall fun educational book and game.

I second the motion with most of the reviews I read. Best tracking book for young children I have seen yet. I love the idea of leaving little details on each page for children to notice and wonder about with their parents. I would urge parents to not be too quick to offer answers to all the little mysteries. Hints are good. Only one very slight downer. While I loved the way the artist depicted real species in the illustrations, I found the stylized nature of the drawings slightly disconcerting. A good parental approach would be to show alternate photos/illustrations or live examples of the species depicted to the child.

My 8 year old twin boys really enjoyed puzzling out of the story the first read. I read it with each of them separately and provided footprint stamps for them to put in their zoology journals once they figured out which animal was described. They listened as I read it with their 6 and 3 year old sisters but weren't as interested after the first one or two readings (my kids generally will listen to the same book over and over but the puzzle aspect was gone). My first grade 6 year old didn't get the animals quite as quickly as the third graders but enjoyed the challenge and surprises when she was wrong. Good illustrations and writing. Perfect length. Recommend for elementary read-aloud and as an introduction to animal habit.
