Amazon.com Review

There are millions of ways to use a body. Take legs and feet, for example. "Legs are for leaping and jumping and dancing. Legs are for kicking and skipping and hopping. Feet are for STOMPING and suddenly--STOPPING!" This playful celebration of legs and bellies and noses and necks is for those new to these parts, but grownups can always use a reminder of what the old bod can still do. A parade of multi-ethnic toddlers delights in winking eyes, stretching backs, and hugging arms. Brita Granstrom's crayon and watercolor characters romp on backgrounds that look like the kids themselves drew them, complete with flowers and shining suns. Readers are invited to join the exploration to discover the useful and sometimes silly things we can do with what we're born with. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

A celebration of the body and what it can do, this book careens from part to part with infectious enthusiasm. Hindley's (The Best Thing About a Puppy) text erratically bounces along in silly, free-spirited rhymes with a nod to Ruth Krauss's A Hole Is to Dig: "Ears are to find at the sides of your head./ Are you wearing your ears today?/ Hurray!" Granstr?m's (The World Is Full of Babies) illustration shows a freckled boy talking into the long, droopy ear of a tail-wagging, alert basset hound. Changes in type size and alignment suggest motion, as in the lines "Feet are for STOMPING/ and suddenlyA/ STOPPING." On the next page the pictured toddlers delight in falling "BUMP!/ On our bottoms,/ side by side." The artwork sets a multicultural crop of kids, toys and pets against a simple backdrop of child-like black crayon drawings and flat watercolor washes. The sunny toddlers (cute clothes, too) laugh, wriggle, stretch, reach and tickle to the accompaniment of the gleeful text. Ages 2-5. (June)

This book is a beautiful journey for your baby and preschoolerabout all those body parts that they love to identify- ears, and noseand toes etc. Further, the illustrations are large and inviting. The most wonderful part of this book is that the children are black and white and asian- they all have noses and ears and eyes, but they don't all look alike. The children look like all of us- different and beautiful. This book conveys more then where your nose is- through illustrations, it introduces and reinforces for our children that everyone is different and that these differences are beautiful and important END

After checking out this book at our library three times, I decided to finally buy this book for my one year old. We read the book daily, and she now mimics the children in the book. As we come to the appropriate page, she plays peek-a-boo, claps, holds up one finger to count along, and blows kisses to the children in the book. It's rare to find a children's book so well written.

I used this book to teach Kindergarten students various body parts. These were ESL (English as a Second Language) students. They loved the book. They laughed when I modeled how to give a kiss and they jumped up and down for the leg movements. Great fun! When I used it, I was being observed for my national standard evaluation. My professor was very impressed with the book. She said it covered language arts, science, and math standards. I highly recommend this book for any Kindergarten class.

This book has been my 18 month old's favorite for about six months now! She anticipates every page and we do movements along with the story. Most of it rhymes really well...and it is FUN to read with her. I would recommend this book for the 9 months-2 year old crowd. You won't be disappointed if you love reading with your children!

My 13 month old has just started learning body parts and thinks this book is WONDERFUL! So far she can point to her nose, ears and mouth. I think it is too hard for pre this age but I expect to get a lot of use out of it for many years to come!

We have this book we got as a gift for one of our babies. That one grew up, and now I am reading this book to my smallest baby. She loves the book. What I like about it is that reading it is very natural. A parent doesn't need to think of what to say or do to interact nicely with the child. The book kind of guides you to help you exactly what faces to make, and what to say. Even a rookie parent can read this book to his/her child, and make it animated. You don't need to be a natural born actor, you will be able to act it out well just by reading the book - simple enough!
The pictures in the book are very entertaining! I think I will keep this book on my shortlist of gifts to get when friends have babies, it is a great book all around! The poem in the book sounds fun, exciting, and what a great rhyme!
