Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
winning collaboration, which portrays assorted body parts and their uses. Ages 2-6. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The conversion to board book works quite well for this introduction to body parts. The rhyming text is accompanied by Rand's bold illustrations of a delightful collection of kids. It is a book that kids and caregivers will read many times. Little ones will soon be pointing to the right places on the pictures and then their own bodies. 1998 (orig.
School Library Journal
PreS A delightfully simple book of rhymes about parts of the body: ``Here is my head /for thinking and knowing. /Here is my nose /for smelling and blowing.'' The book includes hands, feet, head, nose, eyes, ears, knees, neck, cheeks, teeth, arm, and finally the ``skin /that bundles me in.'' A colorful double-page picture of a child showing the part of the body featured accompanies each rhyme. These are expressive and simple, and include children of various races and both sexes. Even though the featured part is sometimes lost in the gutter of the book, this is an enjoyable offering that should find its way into toddler story hours, nursery schools, and many children's hands.
