Giovanni absolutely! the rhymes a catchy, but short (for small attention spans), and the illustrations are fun (as expected--we are talking about Seuss here).

Those 5 stars are totally biased, because Emma just read this whole book to me all by herself - the first one ever - and I'm over the moon with pride!

There was so much joy up in my heart that I forgot to make a joke about her own stinky feet. After a day of hard playing at school, those little piggies get ripe!

Apparently The Foot Book is one they have at school and obviously it's a favorite, because Emma passed over a dozen other good choice

Easy read for kids, my granddaughter read it to me. Classic Seuss.

Another great book by Dr. Seuss, but that doesn't come as a surprise to me. He was always one of my favorites when I was young. Such an imagination he had! I connected with that then... and now. This book of opposites is fun and entertaining with cute pictures and rhyming words. Enjoyable for any age kid.

I was not compensated for my honest review.

“The Foot Book” is a children’s book from the greatest mind of children’s books, Dr. Seuss and it is about how the main character, a fuzzy and golden looking character, introduces the various types of feet that everyone has. “The Foot Book” is one of the greatest books from Dr. Seuss ever created that children will enjoy for many years.

Dr. Seuss’ talent for writing and illustrations has been astounding children around the world for many years and this book is no exception! Dr. Seuss perfectly pu

If I were reviewing this book from my two year old's point of view I'd be far more liberal with the stars. From me it's only getting three. I enjoyed it the first two hundred times, but the plot's a bit lacking.

Our favorite part:
his feet,
her feet,
fuzzy fur feet

Who doesn't love fuzzy fur feet?
Well last night was definitely a night devoted to fun family reading and fond memories. My kids are celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday in school and my my sons' shad an assignment to find a Dr. Seuss book that had an affect on their early life, read it, and bring it to school the next day. My 7 year old chose this title. He loved this book when he was a toddler (and still does). My husband and I know many of these books by heart now and now my son knows this one by heart now too. It not only helpe ...more

This isn't one of our favorite Dr. Seuss books. It doesn't have a lot of content, other then a few rhymes about feet. My biggest attraction to this book is that it's about feet, something I like. My children were half interested in it. Nice addition to a full Dr. Seuss collection for the die hards out there, but not imperative.

Personal Response:I read The Foot Book to my little step bother told me he liked this book because of how many different feet there were and how he had never been read this book but other and never heard of this one. Jacob told me it made him smile and laugh in his own word and trust me thats weird because hes only 4 years old. His favorite part was when this creature of many different legs came out on a page and he took the book and tried to count all them.

Plot Summary: This book is mainly abo

"The Foot Book" is one of Dr. Seuss's books that doesn't have much of a story line, but it does have many different meanings behind it and lessons that can be taken away from it. For one, this book would be great when teaching children about opposites. Throughout the whole book Dr. Seuss compares opposites such as big foot, small foot and his foot, her foot. The illustrations also correspond with many of the comparisons. Another lesson that could be taught from this book is all the different typ ...more
