This is a lovely hardback book with a dustcover, consisting of
approximately 32 glossy, beautifully illustrated pages. The book
is for ages 4-8, according to the publisher.
This is a cute book about a little girl's walk through the woods,
accompanied by her dog. Along the way, they find animal droppings.
The book identifies each kind, and also shows the tracks that animal
or bird would typically make. There is also more information about
each animal or bird. This would be a fun book to pair with a homeschool
nature study, or as part of a science curriculum. That is how we
will use it at our house. Even my older granddaughter likes this
book, mostly because she can never get enough information about
animals to suit her.
I discovered an online Teacher's Guide here: http://www.gale.cengage.com/pdf/TeachersGuides/TrackthatScat.pdf
This guide includes all kinds of ideas, information and activities
to incorporate this book into your curriculum.
This book sells for $15.96 on the Sleeping Bear Press website.
This is a great value for a very special book!
