Becca ZerkinTraces is a kind of poem about the clues left behind by a world in motion—a turtle's footprints in the sand, a frog's air bubbles, a jet's smoky trail. Fox's words have a gentle repeating rhythm, as light-footed as the animal that has just left one scene…Kuskin's mixed-media illustrations fill each scene with subdued earthy greens and browns, cool blues and an unusual bronzy sun…Traces isn't the usual bedtime tale made up of catchy rhymes, silly situations or lessons learned. But what it lacks in flashiness it more than makes up for with untroubled sweetness and elegance.
