High feet, slow feet, fast feet, snow feet! So Many Feet introduces young children to the great diversity in the natural world, using feet as an accessible point of entry. The playful, rhyming main text offers some information, but is mostly fun to read aloud. The secondary text offers more facts about each animal and what makes its feet so unique. The book ends by asking children whether their feet can do all the things animals’ feet can do.

Who knew that feet could be used in so many different ways? We enjoyed learning facts about different animals and how they use their feet. It was especially interesting to see how different each of these animals were from us. I had no idea that butterflies use their feet to taste!

The illustrations are what make this book a must have, especially for animal lovers. Vidal uses simple and elegant animal illustrations that are fascinating and easy to talk about with children. The large board book pages and bold colors make this a perfect book for young children.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
