Book Sharing Monday



Wild Tracks by Jim Arnosky is a book that my kids loved! It has some very interesting facts about different animals in North America and talks about how tracks change depending on what the animal is stepping in and what the animal is doing (running, walking, turning, scratching). It even discusses how some animals tracks may differ depending on sex and time of year. It has fold outs to reveal actual sized tracks to compare each animal track to size. Zoe and Austyn liked to compare their feet to each animal track. It was the most interesting and fun book we've found on animal tracks in North America. I hope you borrow it soon from your library and your kids love it as much as mine did.

Now this is a neat book! I'll have to look for this one.

I think you all will really enjoy the book we shared, too! We've been coming up with our own version of this poem.

I've already put your recommended book on hold at our library! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

Jim Arnosky has wonderful books, many about animals. There used to be a blog that did "Author Fiesta" a couple of years ago. We would focus on 1 author for 1 month, and read as many books as we wanted written by that author. We also did a bit of searching and learning about the author, where he/she lived, etc...
Jim Arnosky was one of them, and was a favourite at our house.
