Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-Arndt categorizes a variety of land and marine creatures by how their feet enable them to walk, climb, swim, dig, and jump. The photographs are dramatic-each category is introduced by a full-page image of a foot against a stark black backdrop. It emphasizes the individual foot, its uses, features, and beauty. Readers are asked, "Whose foot is this?" The next page is a photograph of that animal in its natural habitat, along with some information about why its feet are unique. The opposite page has up to four photographs of other animals in the same category. The detail and sharp color in these photographs are striking. While this book doesn't give much information about these animals, it does a terrific job of imparting what is unusual or distinctive about them. The idea of grouping animals by activity helps children look at them from a fresh perspective. This will be a popular choice for libraries because of its fascinating facts and artful presentation.-Susan E. Murray, formerly at Glendale Public Library, AZα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

Climbing, gripping, clinging, swimming—all things animal feet (or flippers or claws) can do. In simple text and close-ups of splayed toes, webbing, and long nails, Arndt introduces a variety of feet, from a kangaroo’s jumpers to the thick fur topping off a snow hare’s paws. On every other spread, the author presents a photo of a large foot and asks a question: “Whose foot is this?” The page turn reveals the answer (in one case, it’s a lion) and a category, ranging from feet that walk to feet that swim, and so on. Several additional examples are given for each category, illustrated by a small photo and described in one line of text. The category headings at the top of the page are very subtle—let’s hope the audience is eagle-eyed—but the invitation to spend some time thinking about an important appendage is certainly worthwhile. Tightly focused photos are the real highlight here, offering up an intimate view of cracks, crevices, and even an octopus’ suction cups. One thing’s for sure: feetsies sure are funny looking. Grades 1-3. --Ann Kelley

Format: Hardcover
A fascinating look at feet, flippers, and claws -- from below! From the pads on a tiger's paw to the ribbed feet of a gecko, 25 animals are presented foot-first, and then their identity is revealed.

With full-color photographs, this picture book will be enjoyed by ages 6 and up. Quiz your family! Adults love to guess what foot belongs to what animal; some of these photos will surprise you! A great gift for any occasion.
