A Review of "Track that Scat!" in The Midwest Book Review
The Midwest Book Review (Apr 2012)
Track that Scat! is a picturebook about discovering the traces of common woodland creatures, including rabbits, chickadees, red foxes, and Canada geese. A young girl and her faithful dog venture on a woodland hike, and observe the tracks and feces of different animals (sometimes the girl accidentally steps in the scat – good thing she’s wearing boots)! Each two-page spread features a colorful picture of an animal, rhyming read-aloud story text up top, and a brief educational section of text at the bottom, including silhouettes of each animal’s types of tracks and waste. An educational, nature-minded storybook, Track that Scat! is just plain fun to read aloud, provided that neither the parents nor the children are squeamish about what animals do in the woods!
