Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
With bold, colorful illustrations and a simple text, Aliki explains to young readers the components and function of a very important part of our bodies¾the feet. She describes how we walk, ways that we protect our feet with shoes and socks, rubbers and snow boots. She also shows kids running, jumping, skipping and moving around on their two feet and some kids using their toes in an unusual way to pick up things and draw. As we mature our feet grow and during growth spurts, kids may need many pairs of new shoes to keep up with their increasing size. An attractive and practical offering in the "Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science" series, stage 1. 2001 (orig. 1990), HarperTrophy, $16.89 and $4.95. Ages 3 to 6. Reviewer:Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
Aliki's colorful, multieth nic illustrations help present the sub jects of feet and hands in a clear, con cise manner. In My Feet, children are shown running, jumping, and hopping in bare feet and in all sorts of footwear. The text covers anatomy of the foot, footprints, being ticklish, and even ac tivities to try with the feet (like draw ing). The text of My Hands is essential ly the same as the original edition, with added sentences about bones, disabil ities, and even veins. The illustrations are much improved, bright and updat ed, with minorities and handicapped children well represented, performing activities such as drawing, clapping, and talking in sign language. Mention is made in this edition about left-handed ness and the difference between chil dren's and adults' hands. Both texts are simple and straightforward, without be ing condescending. Two fine introduc tions to human anatomy.--Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Pub lic Library, Buffalo, NY
