A nonfiction guessing game that explores the connections between an animal, its tracks, and its habitat. Written by a mammalogist at the Smithsonian, this clever preschool page-turner pairs seven tracks with information about the animals’ locomotion, asking kids to guess which animal left which tracks behind. Whose Footprint Is That? reveals the animals–ranging from flamingos to kangaroos–in their own habitats.
