Reycraft. Aug. 2022. 40p. Tr $17.95. ISBN 9781478876038.
Gr 1-5–This work features all different kinds of footprints: physical footprints, carbon, and digital. The gorgeous images move readers through the pages, and the text is very spare, making the book accessible to a wide range of readers. It is written in an uplifting and inspiring tone, touching on sometimes negative topics, like our carbon footprints, in a positive way. Educators can incorporate this book into all kinds of curricula, from cutting down on our carbon footprint before Earth Day to limiting our digital footprint when teaching about safe internet use. This would be a great choice for research projects, too, with different sections inspiring many possible topics and lessons. Back matter includes additional information about featured ideas. The great photographs and interesting facts make this appropriate for almost all elementary grades.
VERDICT An awesome way to get kids excited to look more closely at the world around them, this beautiful photographic book is recommended for elementary collections.
