    Take a walk through a wintry setting and find out what three children and their dog discover has been there before them. Each illustration is framed with branches (as you can see on the cover too) and outside that frame readers will see the tracks close up. Animals range from cats to turkeys to bears! It is an exciting walk in the woods indeed.The illustrations are charming in their rustic style framed by the woodsy branches. The book is a winning combination of information and guessing game.

    This had great potential for a story hour. But the pictures are too blurry and having the footprints as page frames, rather than a bold single illustration on a page makes it unusable with younger kids and I'm not sure if it will even work with a preschool group.As a lap book it will work fine. But even there, I'd rather have seen a different design--it would have been a lot more compelling.

    The potential of this story existed, but the choice of words did not make the storyline flow. I did like the use of the tracks flowing over the page so one could guess the animal that had been there. There are better winter stories with the animal track theme than this one. Sorry, but I didn't care for it.

    Book set in wintertime follows the trail of a golden retriever named Willy as he explores in the snow, finding animals tracks on each page. Children can guess from hints/illustrations what type of animal created the tracks. Fun!

    The concept of this book is fantastic, basic tracking skills, but the illustrations were kind ofwellblah.

    Take a winter trek through the woods and try to figure out which animals have been roaming in the snow! Great for preschool storytime.

    This is a cute book showing what animals make the different looking tracks in the snow. My daughter had fun trying to guess what animals made the tracks.

    "winter, animal tracks, dogs, skunk spray"

    Love this book set in winter time. It works great for listeners to guess what animals tracks they might be seeing on the next page, if they look carefully at the clues in the illustrations.

    This was a perfect choice for a winter animals storytime at the library last week. Like how the text gives clues as to which animal may have made the tracks.
