    Around the Pond is a wonderful, fictional but educational picture book The illustrations are realistic Two children are picking blueberries around a pond and keep finding evidence of wildlife The book acts like a guessing book, but my guess is preschoolers will not know the answers most of the time I didn t know the answers some of the time But there is information about each of the animals at the end.The formatting annoyed me Each new sentence started on a new line, but not as a new paragraph Nit picky, but, like it still baffles me how people spending time and money on a product can care so little about the basics, like formatting.

    Grades PreK K, 1 2Genre Realistic FictionAround the Pond Who s Been Here is a Great book to read aloud to a group or for an adult and a child to work one on one I like how the illustrations provide the evidence to what animal has been around or in one case in the lake the pictures are beautiful with great detail while the storyline moves along at a study pace I would, in fact, recommend this book to people because it can be used to build critical thinking for example, in the book, they show a pile of sticks, a dam, and askes whos been here Page 15 and based on visual clues a student would have to guess Page number may be off depending if you counted the title page.

    Genre informationalGrade 2nd 3rdin this book, two kids are going around a pond and are trying to guess what animal was there based on feathers shells, paw prints, ect This book does hold some information about animals, but vary little it gives general clues than gives you a specific animal for instance there is a snake skin, the answer a garter snake specificly this just says that only garter snakes shed skin besides the laking information it was good.

    These kids need to get blueberries to make a pie, and instead of going to Shaw s they go out and try to pick them, which is the hard way, especially if you re getting blackberries, because of the prickers Anyway, while they re out there doing that they see all these different animals, or at least their footprints and eggs and feathers and shells and even a SNAKE SKIN, and it s a good thing that snake wasn t in it But they didn t see the actual animals I guess they all ran away when the kids came out and started making noise But it s OK, because they got a lot of berries and now they can make a pie PLUS get to go for a swim, so it all worked out.And guess what They showed ANOTHER animal that likes fish in this one a heron I guess everybody really likes fish but me Oh, well More for them.This one had really amazing pictures so it was a really good one.

    This is a fantastic book for children It tells the story of Cammy and William who follow an old deer trail around a pond and spot many clues which kids can guess as to what was there by the pond For example, footprints seen in mud tell us a coon has been there A big house made out of mud and sticks tell us of a beaver there I can t wait to use this book in the fall with my students at school

    Two children walk around a pond as they pick berries and come across tracks and signs of the recent presence of wildlife which are then identified for the reader.A good glimpse at a woodland pond ecosystem s inhabitants that will help readers discover ways to find evidence of wildlife even if they don t see the actual critters The illustration style of this book is a little dated and may not be as appealing to kids for that reason.

    I read this book to my kids when they were younger I dedicate this to my two youngest The naturalists they love the rain, the trees, the animals, the night sky, the water This weekend one hiking in Olympic National Park while the other is camping in Oregon Be free.

    As Cammie and William and their dog Sam, explore around the pond they discover clues to the wildlife and wonder who s been here turn the page and a beautiful illustration tells the answer Wonderful for teaching children to observe nature around them.

    This story and series appear to take place in a northern area I think children from other areas can still guess some of the animals in this book A paragraph of additional information about each animal follows the story Animal illustrations are vivid.
