Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

From the title on, toddlers will have as much fun with the sounds of the words as the physical facts in this picture book, which starts with the tiny detail of the belly button: “Looking closer, if you squint, you can see a little lint.” As in The Tushy Book (2009), the uncluttered pictures in bright gouache and watercolor and elemental shapes show the action, whether it is eating (“Bellies love carrots and birthday cakes, / tofu, tacos, chocolate shakes”) or belly flopping in the water or giving a puppy a tickly belly rub-a-dub. Kids will enjoy acting out the wriggly words. Preschool. --Hazel Rochman


Praise for The Belly Book:

“This book encourages children to think positively about a body part that is often hidden away or rejected.” —School Library Journal


“With snappy rhymes, bright bold graphics, and a winning sense of playfulness, Manushkin follows The Tushy Book with a salute to the body’s middle ground, this time teaming up with Yaccarino.” —Publishers Weekly


“Delightful art adds panache to this simple ode to a familiar body part.” —Kirkus Reviews

More About the Author

My first children's book, BABY, COME OUT! was published in 1973. I love writing so much that I can't stop! My newest books are the popular Katie Woo series, the first chapter books about an Asian child. There are 25 Katie Woo stories, and now there are six nonfiction books teaching beginning readers how to write. The series is called KATIE WOO, STAR WRITER, and the books teach how to write a letter, a journal, an opinion piece, a poem, a narrative, and a research piece. They are perfect for the new Common Core Curriculum.
I'm also pleased that my books, BIG SISTERS ARE THE BEST and BIG BROTHERS ARE THE BEST, are helping young children adjust to a new member of the family. I come from a family of six children, so I know a little about growing families.
My board book, BIG GIRL PANTIES, is a romp about a girl who's leaving diapers behind for the pleasures of wearing panties like her mother and grandma and aunties! Another board book, THE TUSHY BOOK is a silly poem of appreciation of our behinds.

Format: Hardcover
This is a delightful book filled with laugh-out-loud concepts about bellies. It is fun to discuss all the different kinds of belies people, animals, and birds have, and what they're used for. My girls love to read this book over and over and then look at their own bellies. The artwork is very simple but that is what this book needs. I recommend this to parents of all ages, especially toddlers who are curious about their bodies.

This book is just fabulous. What wonderful rhymes and creative ways to talk about the fun of bellies and belly buttons! Including the innies and pouty outies. :) I checked it out from the library and now have it on my son's wishlist.

By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE on December 1, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Your belly is an important part of the body and this book celebrates that fact. It talks a little about the role that it plays while you are still growing in your mothers womb. It also discusses how it aids in digestion. It;s not just factual info, it does not leave out the fun and wacky stuff. Also included are lines about lint, belly flops and belly dancing. This would be a great tool to use in the preschool or kindergarten classroom during a human body unit study. The illustrations are very bold and eye catching!
