WHOSE FOOTPRINTS ARE THESE? is a wordless picture book. The images do not have any clear main characters but tell the story through the footprints they have left behind with glimpses of a child and animals along the way. By following the footsteps across the page, children can observe where the child walked after waking up, into the bathroom, getting dressed, to breakfast, and outside to play. Animal tracks also appear throughout for the child's pet as well as a bird, rabbit, and more.

What I loved: There is certainly something special and fun about wordless picture books for toddlers and preschoolers who cannot yet read or are still learning. They give young readers a way to interact with a book fully on their own. Children will enjoy following along the footsteps and making their own guesses about what the child and animals have been doing. Clues about who made the prints are found in different parts of the story where they can see peeks at who left the tracks behind. The story is simple but creates a lot of fun for little ones with the full page illustrations and their imagination.

Final verdict: WHOSE FOOTPRINTS ARE THESE? is a clever wordless picture book that will appeal to little ones who can tell the story themselves.
