Crinkleroot's Book of Animal Tracking

Yesterday we spent a few hours at the park along the creek.  We brought our nets and Henry brought a wooden boat he made to float along the current.  It sounds like more fun than it was because Madeleine and Henry decided to bicker the whole time and make everyone miserable.  No matter, we found a tiny, baby crayfish and some deer tracks.  In the summer we've spotted frogs and lots of fish there.

At one time there must have been otters and beavers and all sorts of wild life along the creek.  Sadly we mostly found bits of glass and other trash.

In this book the naturalist narrator, "Crinkleroot" teaches about different woodland animals, their behaviors and how to identify their tracks.
