Twinkle Toes - a little too "pink" for mommy, but baby loves it. Mommy rating would be more of a 2. The touch and feel aspect of the book is not very interesting. There are really just 2 different textures in different colors. I think they are more interesting visually than tactilely because at least they are sparkly.

I loved this book. Each page talks about all the things you can do on your feet, dance, hot, tap, leap ect. All the pages are very bringt. There is rhyming in this book which is great for young children to hear. This book is more of a girly book but I sitll think it would be great for the classroom.
My daughter always loves Karen Katz books (because she LOVES lift the flap books). This is a touch and feel book rather than a lift the flap. She didn't seem to love it QUITE as much as lift books, but she still liked the pictures. Most of the textures were the same. They weren't that different from each other, so I think she became uninterested due to that. She liked the pictures though.
