MAKING TRACKS: DESERT is a clever and fun exploration of footprints and desert animals. This book board features animal prints in the desert leading below a flap that young readers can lift to see what made the tracks. In addition to the large flaps, the tracks are die-cut into the book so that they provide some tactile exploration.

What I loved: This is a really fun way to explore both footprints and desert animals. Each page features a different set of tracks and a large (and very sturdy) flap that shows the animal that made those tracks. There is some extra fun in that the characters and animals are given names. I also appreciated that some of the tracks were made by people to add some extra visual fun for little ones. The die-cut nature of the tracks also makes for some fun textures that little ones can enjoy running their hands over.

In terms of the text, it is simple but fun with animal names in a short sentence. The font is large and bold, so it is very easy to read from a distance. The book length is perfect for older infants and young toddlers who will have enough to explore without getting overwhelmed.

Final verdict: MAKING TRACKS: DESERT is an interactive board book that brings footprints and desert animals to young readers in a truly delightful way. Recommend particularly for older infants and toddlers who love to explore their books on their own.
