From the Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, this brief look at feet is designed to educate children about their feet, but is also a great tool in helping children learn to read. The book is composed of simple, descriptive sentences that repeat basic words. While designed to be read aloud to children, the book also makes an appropriate beginning reader book. Full-page, full-color photos illustrate each topic being discussed and show children playing and displaying their feet. Included at the end of the text are a glossary, an index, and additional sources to consult. Part of the "Let's Read About Our Bodies" series. 2002, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library,

PreS-Gr 1-These books have full-page, full-color close-up photographs and simple, thoughtful texts. In Feet, a photo of painted toenails may be used to encourage children to name the different colors or count the toes. The accompanying text reads: "I have ten toes. I can wiggle my toes. Can you?" On another page, oversized shoes on small feet express the concept of large and small. For preschool units on the human body and personal hygiene and as resources for one-on-one work with beginning readers, these useful titles are better than others of their type.-Kim Donius, Alfred-Almond Central School, Almond, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
