Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Preschool and primary-graders have the first-rate "Let's-Read-and-Find-Out" titles to turn to for information about their physiological selves: Among them, author/artist Aliki's, My Five Senses, My Feet, I'm Growing, and My Hands. In the latter, kids learn what the five senses are and how to use them.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-- Aliki's colorful, multiethnic illustrations help present the subjects of feet and hands in a clear, concise 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 activities to try with the feet (like drawing). The text of My Hands is essentially the same as the original edition, with added sentences about bones, disabilities, and even veins. The illustrations are much improved, bright and updated, 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-handedness and the difference between children's and adults' hands. Both texts are simple and straightforward, without being condescending. Two fine introductions to human anatomy. --Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, Buffalo, NY
