Wild Tracks! – book review and giveaway

You might have noticed my first Jim Arnosky book review and giveaway for Slither and Crawl on Saturday. Today I’m sharing another of his books, Wild Tracks! which offers a guide to animal footprints for children.

Wild Tracks!

Wild Tracks! again features Jim’s colourful illustrations and includes information on mammals, birds and reptiles.

Wild Tracks!

There are four fold-out pages showing life size footprints of different animals.  This has caused much hilarity and Monkey has compared his own feet to the various animals. We’ve compared toes, size and shapes and discussed which animals he has seen in the wild and in zoos.

We’ve talked about going on a bear hunt and how Monkey would now know what their footprints would look like.  Wild Tracks! even shows him the difference in tracks between a running and walking bear, although I’d certainly not want to see their tracks in the woods around here!

Wild Tracks!

This is another lovely nature book to add to our reference collection and priced at £5.99, another bargain.  My Amazon Affiliate link is shown below for your reference.

  1. I’d love to re-create the footprints of a tiger, there is a small zoo near us that has recently got tigers, so it would panic everyone!
