In the Snow: Who's Been Here?

Overview

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dia L. Michels
The illustrations depict winter so well that you can almost feel the crisp cold air as William and Cammy make their way through the woods. While out walking, they find clues pointing to the passage of different animals along the trail. Who could have left claw tracks? How did those fuzzy red balls fall from the sumac tree? Who lives in a nest of leaves? By traces such as these, Cammy and William learn something about each of the eight animals that passed that way before. At the end of the trail, they find the tracings of one last traveler, and its identity may amuse you.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2A child's crudely drawn map on the jacket flap shows the snow-covered trail that young William, Cammy, and their dog follow to the sledding hill. Along the way, the children find signs of animal life (tracks, scattered seeds, a nest, gnawed branches, castings, tunnels, etc.), and wonder ``Who's been here?'' (Perhaps the happiest finds of all are the doughnuts and hot chocolate left at the end of the trail.) Readers will discover the answers in gloriously detailed, realistic paintings of a ruffed grouse, cardinal, squirrel, porcupine, deer, and other woodland and meadow creatures. The almost tactile illustrations are large and stunning. Children will be interested in the significance of these snowy clues; some may be inspired to look more closely on their own forays into winter landscapes. This companion to In the Woods (Greenwillow, 1994) will work as well with groups as one-on-one.Meg Stackpole, Rye Free Reading Room, NY
