K-Gr 2–Wildlife photographer Tekiela helps children investigate which footprints belong to which creatures. Each creature gets two spreads. The first spread contains a picture of an animal track, a silhouette of the animal’s head, and clues about its identity. Readers can make a guess before turning to the next spread, which provides a picture and more specific information about the animal. At the end of the book, there is an outline of the front and back print of each animal identified and a ruler for readers to measure their own “track.” Also included is a short feature about Tekiela’s experience in the field and other children’s books that have been written by him or included his photography. The book’s overall design is appealing and kid-friendly. This would be a great read-aloud for beginning readers and a fun guessing game for wildlife lovers.
VERDICT A strong purchase for libraries with good circulation of other Tekiela books. A great addition to school libraries, classroom libraries, and home collections.
