Sandy Feet! Whose Feet?


Sandy Feet! Whose Feet? Footprints at the Shore

Sleeping Bear Press, April 2019

Illustrated by Steliyana Doneva

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.

School Library Journal starred review: "An engaging read which encourages children to explore the natural world around them, and to fully utilize and embrace their senses.
