Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself” for the preschool set? Perhaps not, but one hopes that the “poet of democracy” would have gotten a kick out of rhymes like “I love you nose,/ though there’s no doubt/ that when you sneeze/ some stuff comes out.” Illustrator Davick, in her first outing as author, leaves no body part uncelebrated; her rambunctious, roundheaded kids and succinct, just-wry-enough couplets also cover nipples (“east and west”) and “the parts that my friends don’t see/ the parts that poop, the parts that pee.” With generously scaled, dramatically cropped compositions and a cheery schoolroom palette, Davick makes every page-turn a surprise and a renewed invitation to join the lovefest. In one of the cleverest spreads, a celebration of hair shows four sets of round eyes peering at one another, with two longhaired kids hanging upside and two with shorter ’dos peeking up from the bottom of the frame. The unalloyed wonder and delight that animate these pages is like a breath of fresh air—and should win over the most reticent audiences. Ages 2–7. Agent: East West Literary Agency. (Apr.)
March/April 2013 The Horn Book
“From hair to tummies to toes and everything in between, Davick’s peppy ode to all our parts successfully uses humor and a little age-appropriate information to deliver its energetic message about celebrating the bodies we’ve got. The infectious rhymes are well matched by clean, friendly illustrations, which feature large ice-cream-colored pages with wide-eyed, smiling kids front and center. Both the pictures’ lack of background and the simple, bouncy text make this ideal for group sharing—though young listeners might find it hard to keep still. At times Davick seems to be encouraging kids to join in.”
Booklist Online
“[A] beautifully orchestrated celebration of the human body. This is a perky paean to body parts, given from the perspectives of a bunch of very little kids…. Light, bouncy education for the youngest set.”
From the Publisher
“This ode to children’s bodies hits all the high and low notes…. The cheerful youngsters who fill the pages come in both genders and many ethnicities….The round-eyed, smiling, simplistic youngsters are appealing.”

Sharing this jolly, cheeky ode with little ones will produce some giggles while helping to instill an appreciation for the wondrous human body and all its necessary parts.”

Kirkus Reviews
A bubbly celebration of the human body. In upbeat, musical verse, children declare their love for their hair, their toes and everything in between. The text is funny, silly and sometimes irreverent, as in the following: "I love you nose, / though there's no doubt / that when you sneeze / some stuff comes out." Davick is careful to leave no body parts out of the raucous celebration. Take, for example, the following verse: "I love the parts / my friends don't see: / the parts that poop, / the parts that pee," which is accompanied by an illustration featuring a profile view of a smiling girl reading a big, red book while perched on a toilet, with roll of toilet paper in reach. The computer-generated illustrations feature solid backgrounds and close-up images of smiling, ethnically diverse children with pleasing, if generic, cartoonlike expressions. In support of the text, the children are depicted running, playing and otherwise putting all those body parts through their paces. Sharing this jolly, cheeky ode with little ones will produce some giggles while helping to instill an appreciation for the wondrous human body and all its necessary parts. (Picture book. 2-6)
