Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cheryl Peterson
"Squishing toes, ...fishing toes, ...digging toes, ...tickling toes," are some of the ways toes keep busy in this beautifully illustrated picture book. Children (and their toes!) from a variety of ethnic backgrounds are realistically represented as they dance, tiptoe, and draw. Young children will enjoy the simple text, and giggle at some of the amusing ways toes are kept busy. This book was actually written by three women through e-mail messages; they combined their three names to create the author. A wonderful book for preschool story time, and one that could be extended in the classroom by acting out the different movements in the book and/or creating footprints.
