We have completely enjoyed reading this book with our child. It is a fun book at bedtime. We take our time with it and read about a different mammal each night. This book has really gotten him excited about animals that live nearby. We have taken a couple of walks outside to look for tracks. Our child gets very excited when we find little tracks in the mud. Just yesterday he found raccoon tracks all by himself. We photograph the tracks that he finds. He loves using this book to identify the tracks that we have photographed. This book has really motivated him to go outside and make discoveries. I am so pleased that he is having so much fun with this!
It is fun because you learn new animal prints, and you also get focused. It can be a challenge for a family who wants to guess what the animal is!
The kids loved guessing what animal would be on the next page. 4 stars because the first time reading was exciting, but afterwards, they knew the animals. Still a fun book for mammals unit.
We love this book’s format. It is a great addition to the mammal’s science unit and we have thoroughly enjoyed using it in our science homeschool group. It’s very engaging and full of facts.
We read this bio as an addition to our mammals unit, and it was a huge hit!!! My kids loved trying to guess who made the tracks!!
Have you ever noticed animal tracks in the mud or the snow? Do you know what animal left those tracks? Did you pause to consider where that animal was going, what it was doing, or where it lived? A tree with claw scratches, a tuft of fur, a paw print, or a dropped feather may be all you have to go by. In this book, become a detective of mammal tracks and signs by searching for clues in the scene. See if you can figure out what animal left the tracks and signs, and then turn the page to see if you are right!
Become a nature detective by learning the tracks and signs of ten different mammals!
