Sandy Feet! Whose Feet?: Footprints at the Shore
by Susan Wood
When a family spends a day at the beach, the children investigate various footprints to see what type of creatures live along the shoreline. Rhyming text turns a sandy beach into an outdoor classroom. The tracks and habits of local wildlife, including hopping sandpipers, scuttling crabs, and burrowing turtles, are identified and explained for young ecology detectives. Even Daddy's feet make an appearance! And at day's end, it's time for tired feet to make their way home. STEM-based back matter includes information on how clues like footprints can identify the type of wildlife inhabiting any given habitat.

Author: Susan Wood
Susan Wood lives in coastal Virginia, where the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean meet. A random license plate she saw one day inspired this book. It read SNDY FT and got Susan thinking of her children’s sandy feet after fun family visits to the beach, plus all the other types of “feet”—paws, claws, flippers, and more—that can be found at the shore. Susan is an award-winning author of books for young readers, including Holy Squawkamole! Little Red Hen Makes Guacamole; The Skydiving Beavers: A True Tale; American Gothic: The Life of Grant Wood; and Esquivel! Space-Age Sound Artist. Learn more about Susan at www.susanwoodbooks.com.
