About the Author:

Millicent Selsam was a popular childrens science writer whose work includes Egg to Chick, a Reading Rainbow book illustrated by Barbara Wolff, and Gregs Microscope, illustrated by Arnold Lobel.

Marlene Hill Donnelly is a staff artist at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2?A longstanding library staple has been rewritten and newly illustated with full-color art. While there are many ways to observe nature, Selsam focuses on animal tracks. Her text is simple, using questions to motivate beginning readers. Comparisons of domestic animals lead to observations in a forest, pondside, and at the shore. Brief descriptions include hints to identify tracks created in snow, soil, or sand, and how to tell whether or not the creature was being pursued by an enemy. Attractive double-page illustrations done in soft natural tones establish the animal habitats and make specific tracks easy to locate and identify. A good introduction to the topic, but to broaden the scope of the many clues in nature, look to Jim Arnosky's Crinkleroot's Guide to Walking in Wild Places (Macmillan, 1990).?Diane Nunn, Richard E.
