Been There, Done That: Reading Animal Signs
from Arbordale Publishing
Written by Jen Funk Weber
Illustrated by Andrea Gabriel
32 pg, 8.5×10, Ages 4-8, Grades K-3
Spotting wildlife is a thrill, but it’s not easy. When Cole comes to visit his friend Helena, he can’t wait to see all the wildlife the forest has to offer—and disappointed when all he sees are a few birds. Together the kids set out on a hike and encounter plenty of animal signs along the way. Through observation and her knowledge of animal behavior, Helena helps Cole learn what each of the signs means: something had been there; something had done that.
