Nonfiction Monday: Traces by Paula Fox, illustrated by Karla Kuskin
Everything leaves a trace....frogs leave bubbles, we glimpse an animal's tail, a snail's trail. Paula Fox's poetical prose combined with Karla Kuskin's detailed illustrations will inspire further observation of the natural world, to see what other traces have been left behind.
The repetitive text is perfect for interactive story times and inspiring children's own version of traces.
Verdict: Recommended as a nonfiction read-aloud for storytimes especially
