Editorial Reviews

"While it’s sold as a counting book—which it is—Track Counts is so much more. Each number, beginning with zero, includes a few educational words about each animal, 1-4 short sentences early readers can practice reading on their own, and a richly rendered illustration of the animals belonging to the foot prints. My favorite is the five baby raccoons peering out from a tree hollow—irresistible. It would be easy for a young reader to want to read/hear the story several times to spend time with the young animals." —Susan Roberts, San Francisco Book Review
