About the Author

Bill Martin, Jr. (1916-2004) was an elementary-school principal, teacher, writer, and poet. His more than 300 books, among them the bestselling classics Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?; Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?; Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?; and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, are a testament to his ability to speak directly to children. Martin held a doctoral degree in early childhood education. Born in Kansas, he worked as an elementary-school principal in Chicago before moving to New York City, where he worked in publishing developing innovative reading programs for schools. After several years, he devoted himself full-time to writing his children's books. He lived in New York until 1993, when he moved to Texas. He lived in the east Texas woods, near the town of Commerce, until he passed away in 2004.

John Archambault is a poet, journalist, and storyteller who has collaborated with Bill Martin Jr. and Ted Rand on several books, including Barn Dance! and Knots on a Counting Rope.

Ted Rand (1915-2005) was a prolific artist whose illustrations appeared in several magazines and newspapers, as well as in numerous books for children. He collaborated with both Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault on many books, including The Ghost-Eye Tree.

My son and daughter (14 months) love this book! It has great simple rhymes, and is nice for talking about body parts (where they are on characters and on you). Plus the pictures are simple and engaging.

Good rhymes identifying all the different parts of the body for younger children. This would be a great book to buy and read often enough that your child has the rhyme memorized about all the different body parts.

This book give children a look at the parts that make up our bodies and what they are used for. A sweet explanation of body parts in a rhyming text. Some highlights are, 'Here are my cheeks for kissing blushing' and 'Here are my knees for falling down'. Every child can connect with some of the statements about the body parts. Charming multicultural illustrations show similarities between people of all backgrounds. A wonderful lesson to learn at an early age.

Short simple text about body parts and the things they do and are good for, also used for senses.

We started reading this book before our boy was a year old. He's twenty months now and has been bringing it to us to read for quite a while. We read TOGETHER as there's lots of room for participation and/or learning body parts as well as actions. One of my son's top five favorite books. We love all the beautiful pictures and diversity of faces.

We we talking about body parts in the preschool class I was in. While many of the student could already name their noses, ears, feet, etc., the interest was high, and after reading it on three different occasions, they were 'reading' it back to me! This is also good for younger children who are learning body parts.
