In this large and colorful book various animals celebrate the joys of having hands, ears, feet, and other body parts. Each body part is introduced by a different animal and is followed by an action. For instance, the zebras have feet, “We can kick them. Can you?” Finally, all the animals realize that they’ve got bellybuttons, which are oh-so-fun to tickle, tickle, tickle!

Perfect for babies and toddlers, this book has very little text per page and the illustrations are playful and dynamic. The rh

I was kind of enjoying this one right up to the very end... then! NO! Tickling of the bellybuttons. Tickling is a form of torture (literally). My (abusive) family used it as a 'can't-you-take-a-joke' form of physical abuse on me. UGH! I would have given this book four or five stars if not for that.

This is a cute story that depicts different animals with bright and colorful illustrations as they use parts of their body to do different actions. The different body parts on the animals in the book can all be found by children on themselves as well. The story uses repetitive language throughout the book leading in to the next animal. Each animal teaches a new action and use for a body part and ask children if they can too? This book is a fun read aloud for a group of young children still learn ...more

Readers of David Martin's books won't be surprised when they meet the author and find that he is just as entertaining as his books - he sings, plays the guitar or the kazoo, or even juggles during his school visits. As David Martin says, "I have never minded particularly making a fool of myself," so he is never at a loss to illustrate his points or to make a connection with the kids. In his intera ...more
