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

By Dennis G. Pratt on September 30, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Kipling may have explained how the leopard got its spots, but Hulbert advances this age-old query into the 22nd century of "How It's Made". Deftly sidestepping creationism vs. evolution, Hulbert opens a beautiful space for parents to share with their child their knowledge, beliefs, and wonder about the natural world.

Her overview samples the adaptation/intelligent design of nature across the major animal classes (e.g., reptile, insect, mammal, bird), covers every major environment (e.g., tundra, desert, rainforest, ocean, deciduous forest), and touches on the major purposes (e.g., springing, buoyancy, clinging, climbing, slipping, digging, swimming, diving)

While focusing only on feet, there is so much that a caring parent can delve into given this lovely springboard. Why do these feet work so well for this creature in this particular environment? What has this foot inspired man to engineer? How do other animals' feet help those animals thrive? What other physical features allow these animals to survive in their environment? This book will open a new respect for the diversity of nature in your child.

A proactive parent may also use this book to broach human diversity and self acceptance -- how all children have different genius, that each genius, while not the same, has its place in the world, a particular environment where her child will find his proper traction in his own niche. The polar bear's feet cannot cling to the branch, and the parrot's will slip on the ice, yet both animals are brilliant in their own environment.

Like a tree in a meadow wind, this story will bend to take you and your child in to share a new level of appreciation and understanding of the natural world. It may even touch how your child feels about himself.

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!

What a great way to bring science to young people! This terrific picture book is both sweet and informative. The writing by Laura Hulbert is spare and carefully rendered, and the pictures by Erik Brooks are lovely. The book is just right for 3-7 year olds. The clever repetition and guessing game, along with the great drawings (with magnified images of the animals' feet), provide a fun way to read and really learn something concrete about animals, even at a very young age. Adults learn something, too-- who knew that polar bears have fur on the bottoms of their feet, or that a desert lizard has special scales on its feet to keep it from sinking into sand? I will definitely share this book with my preschoolers, and will look more closely at the feet the next time I encounter any animal.

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.

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!
