Who has wiggle-waggle toes? I do. Who has flip-flop feet? I do!

This book would work for a really young audience. There is very little dialogue and very simple instructions for moving your body.

Lots of call and response style action, engaging pictures and a multicultural cast would make this a perfect story time book.

This book is good for teachers who work with early childhood children. The book can use to teach children body parts such as nose, kneels, and many other. It is repetition and the children can join in the reading.

Richie’s Picks: WHO HAS WIGGLE-WAGGLE TOES? by Vicky Shiefman and Francesca Chessa, ill., Holiday House, January 2019, 40p., ISBN: 978-0-8234-3864-8

“Who has wiggle-waggle toes?
I do.
Who has flip-flop feet?
I do.”

The highlight of my long-ago coursework in early childhood education was a class in Music and Movement. There is such joy in participating in, and sharing, new and traditional songs, dances, and fingerplays with young children who are developing their gross motor and fine motor skills.

Who has Wiggle-Waggle Toes?By Vicky Shiefman and Illustrated by Francesca Chessa. PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2018. $18. 9780823438648



This book is a body part “call and answer style” read-a-loud. It has toes, hands, heads, ect. So an example would be “who has peekaboo hands?” and the listeners would yell “I Do”. It features simple illustrations of round headed children showing off the aforementioned parts.

Although I like the idea
In the same way that "The Hokey Pokey" gets youngsters up out of their seats and moving around, this picture book will have them moving all parts of their bodies. Rendered in colored pencil, watercolors, and with some reliance on digital tools, the illustrations feature abundant white space and lively children who have "knockabout knees," "out-there elbows," and even a"big bold bottom." After finding out which children have these physical elements, the children are asked to manipulate them in ...more

This book was just...meh. So many other great read-aloud body books out there like Toesy Toes, Ten Little Toes Two Small Feet, From Head to Toe, and We've All Got Bellybuttons. The writing was straightforward and the illustration style muted the skin color diversity.

Imagine a parent and child, or a group of preschoolers and a librarian, rejoicing in toes, knees, bottoms, elbows, hands, and noses. Now imagine them being encouraged to move them. Yes, this is a dandy book that shouts for group movement, with bright and bouncy illustrations and joyful and inviting text. What fun!
Super interactive book along the lines of Carle's From Head to Toe/i>, this one has a diverse cast of kids in the illustrations who all seem to be having a good time as they move and shake and wiggle according to the text. There's no real story line, so this is better for toddlers than for preschoolers, but still a lot of fun.
Molly Cluff (Library!)
Very fun, active book that would work great for my toddler storytime group. It's one of those books that is automatically interactive (having you wiggle toes/head/knees, etc) like Eric Carle's From Head to Toe. Definitely showing this to my storyteller crew.

Entertaining, get up and move, picture book! Call and Response. Who has.... I do! After all the body parts are accounted for, the call and response progresses to more action. Can you.... Yes, I can....!
Fun activity book for preschoolers.

Cute...though a little long for the toddler age it seems to be aimed at. I could see reading through the first half of it with a toddler story time, though.

Also, I love the child in the wheelchair - but why aren't they included in the final group spread? Seemed a bit like token inclusivity....
Perfect for getting the wiggles out, this picture book encourages kids to get up and move the different parts of their bodies. Fun and silly actions abound, from crinkling your nose to shimmying your bottom. I like the closing message - that you are perfect and lovable from head to toe!

Want to try this for a storytime and see how it goes. Looks super cute.
I think this would be a good storytime book for children with the wiggles.

A perfect book for toddler time or story time. It has rhythm, rhyme, and fun words - all to get children to identify body parts and move them.
This book was a great read-a-loud for my kids at school. It got them moving and having fun at the same time. I also loved the diversity in the kids in the illustrations.

Encourages kids to do different motions throughout the book, like hiding hands or shaking heads. Might be good for storytime. 30 pages

An interactive book with a call and response theme that teaches children their body parts, and allows them to shimmy, shake, and wiggle as they learn.

This is a fun action book. "Who has a big bold bottom? I do...Can you shimmy your big bold bottom? Yes, I can shimmy my big bold bottom."

Bug loves this silly book. Kids are asked if they have wiggle-waggle toes, flip-flop feet and other wacky body parts. She memorized this one quickly.

This seems like a fun book to include in toddler storytime. It is borderline too syrupy sweet for my taste, but cute nonetheless.

Fun little book that talks about different actions connected to body parts. Slightly repetitive, but might fun to do.
