really liked it

"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 types of people that children are going to meet in their lifetime. They won't typically understand peoples backgrounds and differences in the beginning, but this book sort of gives them the idea with some of the comparisons as well. For instance, they may meet someone with big feet, or small feet or maybe even some people with black or red feet. He was just trying to portray to children that there are many types of different people in this world and that we are not all the same.

I would recommend this book to younger readers such as kindergarten to second grade.
