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.
Aletheia Ubben
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.

"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
As a mother I don't like flap books (they get ripped and ruined so fast) but my daughter loves them.

I am not sure this book helped her learn her body parts as well as other books but it kept her entertained.
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.

This is a great way to introduce body parts! There are a variety of vocabulary. its a great kids book for learning body parts.
Great early reader and vocabulary building book. It teaches body parts and location words.
A great book about body parts featuring a diverse group of kids.
If your little one loves peek-a-boo, this book is a definite winner.
My son loved lifting all of the flaps!
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.
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.
Cassandra Roach
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.
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).

This is Elodie's favorite book, she loves to lift the flaps. Her favorite flap was the lollipop until she ripped it off (whoops!) she likes the page with teeth best.
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.
A good next step up from Where Is Baby's Belly Button? with more advanced body parts like elbows and back. Same bright colors and fun flaps to lift.

Linnea (4 mos) and I do this one almost every day -- great contrast with the type and the pages, which are hard, and fun flaps to keep things fun fun fun!
I love this lift the flap book. Mommy and I find the body parts in the book, then I point out mine and say the words. I'm really good at it.
