This understated book hits just the right note. The apt one-line descriptions capture something essential about the animals depicted and the variety of claws, paws, fins, flippers and hooves found on planet Earth. Julie Murphy’s deceptively simple prose enlightens while it entertains. We learn that cheetah feet have claws that “grip the ground even better than soccer shoes” and that great horned owl feet can “snatch up skunks, which are almost three times heavier than the owl!”

#14 (information 1/2) A book about different animals and what their feet can do. I like it because it focuses on similarities rather than differences. Could lead to a class book on what children’s feet like to do.

Animals have all kinds of feet that are adapted to help them in their particular habitat. Webbed feet help to propel ducks through the water. Koala feet with long claws help them to stay in branches while they sleep. Bright blue booby feet attract a mate! Cheetah's feet are fast and bighorn sheep's hooves hold them to high ground. The last page asks the reader what their feet can do.

Good non-fiction picture book that teaches little readers about feet. Feet are an unusual topic but it's amazing t

Yup, animals have feet. And they use them for many different things. And the feet are adapted to help the animals with those different things. Mother Nature, evolution, and God are all brilliant about that.
Fun facts about animal feet, like the comparisons used to make the facts understandable, the illustrations are childlike and fun.
