New Children’s Book Release

“Animals are all around us. While we may not often see them, we can see signs that they’ve been there. Some signs might be simple footprints in snow or mud (tracks) and other signs include chewed or scratched bark, homes or even poop and pee (traces). Children will become animal detectives after learning how to “read” the animal signs left all around. Smart detectives can even figure out what the animals were doing! This is a perfect sequel to Mary Holland’s Animal Anatomy and Adaptations series.” (Arbordale Publishing)

    • Thank you, William. I think 4 – 8 years is good, but I have had adults tell me they’ve learned a lot while reading it to their children! 🙂

    • While I could sign your copy, and do receive a much larger percentage if I sell my books directly, I do have to charge postage and it ends up being more expensive than if you order online! Thank you so much for asking.

    • Hi Curt,
      The publisher says 5-9. Three year olds seem to love the photos, and four year olds are old enough to enjoy the simple text. I actually have adults tell me they learn and thing or two from my children’s books!
