KIRKUS REVIEW

Crinkleroot, the old woodsman of [ Was Born in a Tree and Raised by Bees (1976), returns to point out some of the animal signs you might observe--around the water (a beaver darn or the tracks of raccoons or otters), in the woods (discarded deer antlers or pellets from owls), or in the snow (the tracks of a snowshoe rabbit or fox). As in the previous lesson, he asks his young companions to study the pictures--to sort out or trace the different animals' tracks, to find the rabbits hidden in the snow, to figure out what the raccoons had to eat--but by now he's learned to be a little less cutesy, while retaining his chatty informality.
