Craigmore Creations, 2014. Informational Picture Book
A wolf leaves four claw marks in the sand, and a bear leaves five. Put them together and that is nine claw marks all together. This clever picture book introduces children to animal prints and counting. The book is illustrated with rugged brown and sepia realistic depictions of the featured animals, and clear examples of what the animals prints look like. The text is brief but informative, and is printed in large clear font. This is a fun choice for children who might enjoy looking for animal prints in the sand or newly fallen snow.
