Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Little ones play a dressed-up version of peek-a-boo in Marion Dane Bauer's board book Toes, Ears, & Nose!, illus. by Karen Katz. "Inside my mittens I've got," Bauer begins. Readers lift decorative pink mittens to find "fingers." Snow boots, earmuffs and a scarf hide other body parts; vibrant colors and patterns add pizzazz.
Children's Literature
Under all those clothes that we wear are our bodies, and one of the things kids should be able to identify and name are their major body parts. This board book contains flaps which represent clothing kids would typically wear. For example, the young girl on the opening page is wearing a pair of mittens and the implied question is what is inside those mittens. Lift the mittens up and you see her fingers as well as the word printed on the flap. It progresses with toes, ears, nose, elbow, knee, back, belly button, teeth, tongue, and eyes, but best of all, on the last page under the blanket is a cute little girl. The book has a multicultural cast and is a great way to help kids learn about their bodies. 2003, Little Simon/Simon & Schuster,

School Library Journal
PreS-This lift-the-flap adventure is an introduction to various body parts, with fingers behind mittens, toes inside boots, two ears under a hat, etc. A multicultural crew of children with playful expressions on their faces is dressed in jeans, a coat, even sunglasses decorated in bright polka-dotted, striped, and flowery patterns; colors include hot pink, sunshine yellow, spring green, and ruby red. A cheerful board book to use with lapsit and toddler storytimes.-Olga R. Kuharets, Broward County Libraries, Fort Lauderdale, FL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Kids love interactive books, and this one allows the reader to be creative, funny and engaging... teaching the little ones about body parts - making learning fun for all.

We bought this book, hoping it would support teaching our son Ethan his body parts. It's a FANTASTIC book! He has really learned his body parts quicker, thanks in part to this book. Now he can even point to Mommy's ears, eyes, etc. My only complaint is that the elbows and knees flaps are at a weird angle and he's torn them a little bit while attempting to lift them. But then again, it's probably a fine motor skill to have him move the flaps in an unusual direction. I highly recommend this book!

Good sturdy book with bright colors. Excellent for a one-year old.

I really like this book and my daughter liked lifting the different flaps. Unfortunately, she also like ripping off the flaps... Needless to say, we will be doing some repair work and then saving the book until she's a little older.

The book was listed as in "very good condition". The book was destroyed by either a dog or a child. This book was a board book and had torn pages, chewed corners and the binding looked like a child had eaten right through it. I will absolutley never buy a book from this "company" again!! There is no capability in the "star" method of rating for a negative 10 stars!!

My son loves to uncover the parts while we read to him. Great book that keeps his attention.

My 10-month-old son loves this book. His dad reads it to him every night while I get him dressed. This is the first book that captivates his attention. He also loves to 'read' it during the day by himself. It's cute watching him turn the pages and flip the flaps as if he knows what's going on. He spends more time on this book than any of his toys. We're ordering four more lift-the-flap books for him. Can't wait till they get here.

We started reading this to our Grand-daughter as an infant. She is now three and now tells us the story. It has held her interest for a long time. Bonus-it is a teaching book in addition to being fun. Has held up to some 'tough' love from her.

My 2-year-old adores this book. He likes the eye-catching art. The illustrations are colorful with pattern. Kids can relate this book to everyday life as a toddler. They love being surprised by looking inside the flaps. It's so much fun to see what's under mittens and other flaps.

My little girl is 23 months old and simply adores this book. She has pretty much liked books (mostly eating them!) but ever since I gave her this Toes, Ears and Nose Board Book she has been so excited about sitting on her bed and having me read with her! Her favorite parts are the nose, toes and teeth! Juliette gives this book 2 thumbs up! I give it 5 stars! I highly recommend it!
