Another favorite. Forget learning my body parts, this book is teaching me all about diversity. There's one girl who looks just like Aunt Jenny and a little black boy who looks just like Uncle Mo.

This is a great way to introduce body parts! I love reading this to my daughter. There is a variety of vocabulary and descriptive illustrations.

We picked this book up for free while we were attending the Festival of Tales event, at Paradise Valley Community College. The event was amazing and they provided us with 7 free books!

My daughter loves Karen Katz Lift-the-flap book. This is one we haven't seen or own! It's larger than the other cardboard lift-the-flap books we own which is nice. This focuses on body party again like "Where is Baby's Belly Button?", but there are more in depth body parts in this one - such as elbow, knee and toes

When it comes to identifying body parts with young kids, I find no book to be a substitute to face to face engaging time with a child, and in fact feel this just detracts from that one on one, prop free play time with little ones. Flap lifting is always fun for kids, but I much prefer books that tell a story and have genuine surprises under the flaps that I can't simulate with basic interaction. The littlest of the little might not understand the story at first, but through engaged, interactive ...more

A marginally interesting book. (Aletheia's review: The flaps are a mystery to me. I accidentally opened one by lifting it, but it was probably a mechanical error in the flap itself. Pushing on the flaps continues to appear the best approach.)

Personally I don't really like the pictures and writing as much as I could. Why the five stars? Because my son LOVES this book and really enjoys the 'surprise' under each flap. its well done, if not my style, and for that it gets the high rating.

Shelves: toddler-reads
"Toes, Ears, and Nose" by Marion Dane Bauer was a great learning tool for my daughter. And, the illustrations by Karen Katz complimented the book very well. It's a lift-the-flap book(my daughter loved doing that part). The flaps represent a piece of clothing or other item that you would have on your person such as a scarf, candy or even glasses. Each time a flap is lifted, it reveals a body part as the title suggests - "toes, ears, and nose" among others.
As a parent, I thoroughly recommend this

fun flap book to learn about clothes and body parts showing a diverse set of babies. but we are learning no to get flap books from the library because most of the flaps are missing or ripped.
Nov 24, 2015 Nick rated it liked it
Minus a star because my kid pulled the earflaps off of the hat and points and asks about them every time. It's like, yeah, there's just ears there because you broke it. Deal.

A great book for teaching children the names of body parts. It's also fun for them to move the flaps to reveal the different parts.

Sep 12, 2009 Jessica rated it really liked it
This book has brightly colored pictures. The book says inside my mittens I have or under my hat I have… Then the child can lift the flap and see what is underneath. The book goes through different body parts and what you would find (hands, feet, teeth, ears, toes). It is a cute book about body parts. I think it is good for toddlers because they can guess what is underneath. It makes them think about what it is and making predictions. It is a board book with easy to lift flaps.

Another fantastic lift-the-flap book! The flaps are inventive: mittens, boots, earmuffs, a scarf etc. This is a great book to share one-on-one or with a group (especially the baby/toddler crowd) because body parts like elbows, knees, toes etc are hidden under the flaps and when revealed you can prompt your audience to point to the same part on their body. Also illustrator Karen Katz presents us with culturally diverse pictures of cute babies. Three cheers for this fabulous board book!

This book covers the smaller body parts. Or the not so famous ones... I've got fingers, toes, ears, nose, elbows, knees, back, belly button, teeth, tongue, and eyes. My son knows what eyes, mouth, belly button, feet, and hands and where they are. Working on teeth, fingers, toes, and tongue so this one I like out of the two body part (Where is Baby's Belly Button?) books. Trying to talk to him about knees, elbows, belly, back, bum, arms, and legs more also.

Cute book to show kids the different parts of the body. I'm afraid the liftable flaps will be easily ripped and the book will loose all purpose. I better enjoy the book while I still can!

A good book for teaching body parts to little ones. The kids love lifting the flaps. The illustrations are simple but engaging. The only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 is that I would have preferred that the author focus on feet instead of toes, arms instead of elbows, and hands instead of fingers, for example.

Got this for Natalie today at TJ Maxx for 5 bucks! I was looking through it while holding her and she seemed interested. It is a lift the flap book, which is what she is into right now. The illustrations are very cute and I like how it goes over body parts, even ones like elbows. Mike thought it was great, too!

This is a terrific book. At 13 months, it is Leo's absolute favorite. Great for reinforcing the body parts he already knew and has taught him a few new ones (e.g., tongue). The flaps probably won't last for long, but they are a bit more sturdy than some of the other pop-up books we have.
Oct 25, 2009 Mindy rated it really liked it
What's not to love about a flap book? This one has lots. And I like that it teaches body parts. Jack loved playing with his cousins a few weeks ago. So when I saw it at TJ Max, I picked it up for him. I think it looks cute and older style... like stuff I had as a little girl.

This is a very simple picture book with an interesting idea in the "Lift-the-Flap" concept.
After reading Marion Dane Bauer's "On My Honor" this is not what I would have expected to see from her! Still, "Toes, Ears & Nose" could be a good development tool for preschoolers.

My 1 year old love this one! He loves to lift all the flaps and see the different body parts... at the end of the book, you lift up a "blanket" flap to reveal the whole child hiding underneath. My son cracks up at that EVERY time! A great book for young kids!

This is a good interactive book for teaching kids body parts. The language is simple and the illustrations are colorful with a diverse group of kids. Done right, this could be a great teaching tool.

This, along with Where is Baby's Pumpkin?, are my favorite Karen Katz books. My daughter LOVES this one, and, since we're teaching her where her toes, nose, ears, etc. are, it's educational, too.
Jun 25, 2010 Mikayla rated it really liked it
Simple book, but Mikayla loved lifting the flaps and looking at all the body parts. After we read it through once she actually flipped the book over so we could read it again (she never does this).
Jun 27, 2008 Connie rated it liked it
Save this one for a kid who won't pull the flaps themselves, because they *will* rip them, unfortunately :(

But the content is great, that simple style that kids like.
