Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristy Lyn Sutorius
This gorgeous guide to animal tracks and other indicators of their presence runs the gamut. Starting off with an introduction to gait patterns, methods of tracking and instructions on recording tracks, the book preps readers before thrusting them into the wild. From common animals like skunks and spiders to more curious civets and caimans, Johnson then covers the major animal groups, including mammals, amphibians, reptiles, birds, insects and other invertebrates. Each animal is profiled, including its size, range, habitat, tracks, scat and other pertinent information. Additional boxes provide special tips on "reading" a dog by the position of its tail, identifying types of feathers and nests, and efforts animals make to mark their territories. Most helpful, however, are the true-to-size silhouettes that bedeck each page, giving readers a place to return once they have made their castes or sketches. Johnson provides a list of further resources, an index, and a glossary for those with even more questions. Readers can even test their knowledge with a track quiz. Beginner biologists, science teachers and families who live close to nature will find regular use for this comprehensive volume. All school and public libraries will also want to track down a copy or two. Reviewer: Kristy Lyn Sutorius
