Book Review  
 
It is always nice to have a good reference book when studying mammals…one that covers tracks and scat is very helpful. One book that I enjoy and find creates interest in this topic is the book, Tracks, Scats and Signs by Leslie Dendy. This is one a series of books that is aimed at stimulating interest in nature study, using inviting illustrations and simple to understand text. 

This is a book you will share with your children before going outdoors and then use in a follow if you find some tracks or scat. You can sketch the tracks in your nature journal or take photos to include if you wish.This book is included in Fun With Nature: Take Along Guide if already own that one.


Getting Started Suggestion:
If you already own the Getting Started ebook, complete Outdoor Hour Challenge #7. Use the notebook page in this challenge to record any mammal tracks or scat you find in your own backyard. Look up the tracks and then complete the notebook page for the animal you discover. You can add to your own field guide pages any time you find something new in your backyard.
