Format: Board book
WHOSE TOSE ARE THOSE is Jabari Asim's second board book for babies and toddlers in which the focus is on body parts. The text is playful and engaging and appeals to a child's excitement about themselves. The illustrations are the perfect complement and are bright and colorful, making them easily relatable to the words on the pages. Little girls, especially, will love the book as it clearly represents several of ther aspects, such as "the girl with the sparkling eyes and that cute button nose."

WHOSE TOES ARE THOSE is a perfect book to assist in teaching body parts and the beauty of even the simplest of things; in this case, toes. It fosters awareness of self-esteem and depictions of themselves in which children of color can recognize. From the rhyming text to the introduction of counting, this adorable book will become a favorite for children and parents alike.

I'll copy and edit my review of the matching book which I also own, "Whose Knees Are These," which features a little black boy. I have a new baby and I am seeking out books for black babies. I stumbled across this and I love it. I am buying a load of them for friends for the holidays--I'm planning ahead! I am glad to share my love of books with my son and better still that they feature children of color.

This is a cute book, my son loves it when I read it and tickle his toes. The only problem is this book is meant for girls, one line says "the girl with the cute button nose". I didn't look through it enough when I bought it and didn't realize it was meant for a girl. I wish it was non-gender specific, but oh well, I will still read it to him and just change the words.

This book, along with its "brother" book "Whose Knees are These" have become our favorite gifts for children in our lives. The books are fun, original, and fast page-turners. My daughter loves to do the "This little piggie" game as we read it. We also appreciate the multi-ethnic illustrations. We think that it is great for all kinds of children to have books featuring all kinds of children!

I gave this book to my boyfriend's daughter for Easter instead of candy. Other adults thought giving her a book in a basket with a rabbit was odd; they all gave her toys, clothes and lots of candy in one big basket. Well, as it turns out, she liked everything, but this 2 year old loves for us to read her this book! She brings the book to us when we visit her and she sits there patiently until you get to her favorite part, where she shows you her toes! And, the book is helping her language skills.

This book is great for cuddling and playing with your baby. It encourages you to touch and tickle their feet. It also encourages you to ask your baby questions and wait for an answer, even if it is just a coo. I absolutely love the style as it leads to wonderful interaction between parent and baby.

My kids absolutely love this book--and it's companion, "Whose Knees are These." The last page shows the characters head to toe with big smiles, and my kids laugh out loud when we get to that page. The pictures are fun and colorful with special things like a cat my kids have begun pointing out. It's a great opportunity to start introducing body parts too. While I read it, I tickle their toes and knees and make the connection to the characters. I love that these books talk about "brown knees" in a way that doesn't sound like some of the cheesy diversity books out there for kids.

Some people have commented that the "toes" book is for girls and the "knees" book is for boys, and if someone wants to make a direct identification with the characters, this may be true. But I would hate for someone to avoid one or the other for this reason. I simply changed the line to "her toes," and I gave the boy a name. My other issue about directly identifying with the characters is that hopefully parents of white kids will still get these books for their kids. Unfortunately, there are too many best-selling books out there that only show white characters (I Love You Through and Through, Big Little). I was frustrated that my kids' books weren't reflecting the diversity of the world for my white children, but I hate most of the diversity-themed books. I was excited to find these books that are fun, simple board books that don't star a white child. Baby Cakes is another sweet board book that depicts babies with different skin tones.

I highly recommend this book for all children. It's been a favorite from the beginning at around 7 months. They're now 15 months, and they still love it.

I purchased this book along with "Whose Knees are These?" for my twin boy and girl. They love these books. I think that they are excellent African-American books. Provide very positive images.
