Editorial Reviews

Review

“…this title earns its own place on current picture-book shelves.” --School Library Journal
 
"Brooks’ watercolor scenes, which ably highlight both adaptation and environment, will perform well for individual readers and small class groups." --BCCB
 
"Brooks’s naturalistic yet affable animals will likely inspire readers to take a closer look at their own feet." --Publishers Weekly
 
"The simple text, the colorful illustrations, and the guessing game combine to make this an engaging picture book for reading aloud.” --Booklist
 
"The text and concept are refreshingly simple, while still educating and entertaining. The richly colored and realistic watercolor illustrations depict child-friendly beasts without anthropomorphizing them. A gatefold at the conclusion brings all the animals together, and a checkerboard of heads and feet on its flaps is a ready-made matching game….Young animal fans will find much to enjoy and are sure to ask for multiple readings.” --Kirkus Reviews

My two and a half year old son LOVEs this book.
AnnaO
After our first reading, he looked up with eager eyes and half-requested, half-commanded "Let's read it again!"

The pictures are captivating, and the text is engaging.

Format: Hardcover
This nonfiction picture book is one giant guessing game. Kids are shown a drawing of a creatures feet and asked to guess who they belong to. When they turn the page the full picture of the animal is shown and they can see if they guessed correctly. It also includes a fact about how those feet help the animal in their habitat. I would recommend this for one on one reading due to the fold out pages. It would be awkward to share with a group.

This book is a stellar choice for my first grade readers. The pictures are captivating, and the text is engaging. Because of the dual levels of challenge in the text, it is good choice for children who are just beginning to read as well as those with more experience. Because there is something for everyone, it is a favorite in both my Library and my Buddy Reading centers. Readers can grow with this book!

A really engaging book destined to be a classic. I'm purchasing several copies as gifts for many families with kids from 3 months to 8 years. Simple, smart and short (good for bedtime!) with lots of room for interesting conversations over the years. The pictures immediately attract the reader, and the questioning text is great fun. I truly believe this will be a classic book on every shelf; it's timeless!

I enjoyed this book immensely--and so did my son! The deceptively simple text is rhythmic and lulling enough to read right before bedtime, yet informative and engaging enough to inspire further scientific inquiry. Hulbert doesn't talk down to her young readers, and Brooks doesn't "draw" down to them, if such a thing is possible; the text and illustrations are educational without feeling didactic--no mean feat! Pun intended.)

Format: Hardcover
Kirkus Reviews is spot-on in its praise for this wonderfully engaging book by Laura Hulbert and Erik Brooks! My almost four year old son was riveted by the simple repeating pattern of the text and the clean, focused illustrations of nine animals and their unique feet.

After our first reading, he looked up with eager eyes and half-requested, half-commanded "Let's read it again!" Which we did, many times over! Could an author and illustrator ask for a better review?

The final gatefold pages arranged in a pair of crisp 3x3 arrays were a natural invitation to a matching game, with my son suggesting that he point to the animal's feet and that I point to the corresponding head.

This is truly a book to enjoy again and again, and I know that each reading will suggest more ways for us to delve deeper into the evolutionary biology of the animals presented. Bravo!
