From Head to Toe
I can do it! That's what kids will say when they wiggle, stomp, thump, and bend across the pages of this book. Laughter and squeals of delight will abound as boys and girls (and their elders, too!) participate in the action.

The story From Head to Toe is a book all about comparing different body movements with humans and animals. Every time the animal asks the human if they can move something on their body the human says “I can do that!”. They go through twelve different body parts.
I love this book From Head to Toe by Eric Carle. I gave this book five stars. The illustrations are my favorite because they are so distinct .I can always tell what an Eric Carle illustration...more
From Head to Toe, by Eric Carle, discusses all the different actions animals and people alike can do. For example, “I am a gorilla and I thump my chest. Can you do it?” and on the next page the child responds, “I can do it!” The story goes on to show different animals such as; a cat, penguin, monkey and giraffe all doing things and the child on the next page mimicking them. Just as a monkey can wave its arms, a child can too; and just as a giraffe can bend its neck, a child can too!
I thought this book was good because it teaches children all of the different ways that their bodies can move. It is very informative without being boring. It would also be really fun for kids to follow along with the teacher or their parents who are reading it to them. They can be active and having fun while retai...more

1. Animals. Carle obviously adores animals.
2. Fabrics. Carle loves texture and pattern.
3. Human hair. His hair is somewhat less pleasing than his fabrics
And then somewhere, way, way down at the bottom of the hierarchy comes "Human face and figure." It is always jarring to me to compare his beautifully articulated animals that practically roar and pop off the page with his blo...more

This book is idea for KS1 and EYFS and effective for teaching different parts of the body. The book gets children up and moving as the children copy the movements discussed in the book.
The book is simple.
There are animals that are moving various parts of their body.
However, when read to a crowd of children with energy and expression,
and by adding movements, and allowing the children to act these motions out,
this book becomes everything a four year old will learn to love about reading,
After reading the book from head to toe, have the children get all of their wiggles out with music and movement. Sing and dance to the head, shoulders, knees and toes song.
We love all Eric Carle books. But this is not one of our favourites. This book is about what animals do. There isn't a story. And as fans of Eric Carle we've seen these animals before. While there is a concept to be learned here. It will not be absorbed because the non existent story can't keep the reader's attention.
The book asks children to move with the animals in the book. Each page shows first an animal doing a motion and then an illustrated child doing the same thing. For example: "I am a penguin and I can turn my head. Can you do it?" The child replies, "I can do it!" This book i...more
"From Head to Toe" is a good book, very similar to the other children's volumes that Eric Carle has produced.
