Tracks: An Animal Tracking Book for Kids by Ann Schaefer, John Schaefer and Tina Howell

This title is part of BHA's Jim Posewitz Digital Library: Required Reading for Conservationists


Tracks is a piece of art. I love the ways you can use it, as a quick facts book or a full-on tracking book.

Both kids and adults will appreciate this book. I enjoyed it very much, and as I am 11, I can safely say that many adults would find this an amazing starter book while kids can learn many new things.

The author gives a wide variety of animals that you can track. And parts, such as about a hibernating bear's bowel movements, were new to me and my mom.

I would definitely recommend this book as a birthday present for any person who is outdoorsy, or even someone who isn't.
