Synopsis

Wild Tracks! A Guide to Nature's Footprints by Jim Arnosky

A stunningly illustrated introduction to the animal world that will have kids on the prowl. When children learn to recognise and read animal tracks they're actually mastering an ancient language of shapes and patterns - and gaining knowledge of the natural world. Acclaimed artist and naturalist Jim Arnosky has created a breath-taking and informative reference on the subject, filled with intricately drawn prints from creatures both wild and domestic, as well as large-scale paintings of the animals in their environments. Adding to the eye-catching illustrations are four awesome gatefolds that display paintings of a bobcat, wolf, deer, and a variety of hoofed animals right next to their prints. This is the perfect gift for a budding naturalist, animal lover, or artist.

Reviews

* This is a splendid example of Arnosky's skill at making natural history come alive for young readers. Kirkus Reviews (starred review).. .a terrific beginning field guide...the uniformly lovely illustrations and the compelling concept make this a book that young naturalists will enjoy year-round.
