Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Nature Book Wonderful book for getting the kindergarten set to really look at the world around them. My kids loved it and were eager to draw pictures of the tracks, used their new knowledge to inspect the tracks outdoors, and began to understand the rudiments of animal locomotion.
