This is a toddler board book that is sure to appeal to any parent and child. The text rhymes well and has a flowing rhythm that could actually be sung. The author poses the question, “whose toes are those?”. The toddler’s toes appear in various poses. The reader catches the occasional glimpse of the child who owns them. It ends with a double page spread turned sideways showing a very happy child and her toes.

The illustrations are soft yet bright, simple and charming. The pictures seem to glow.

This book is suited for one to three-year-olds and will quickly become a favorite of even the youngest toddler. ( )

The protagonist of this charming story is a toddler girl discovering her own toes as the narrator asks a series of questions. Recommended for children ages 3-6.

Simple rhymes such as “toes/those,” “sweet, feet,” and “please, these” to assist children in developing phonemic awareness. The book is rich with repetitive question structure; on nearly every page, there is a question starting with “Who” or “Whose toes.”

The text is comprised of short sentences of four or five words interspersed with slightly longer ones. While a few pages contain sentences with as many as nine words, these are broken into lines of no more than four. Plentiful space between words and phrases aid beginning readers in following along with the text.

The story also features a new version of the ten little piggies rhyme, encouraging parents and children to interact with the text by demonstrating the rhyme on the child reader’s own feet.

Each page features an illustration of the protagonist’s toes that children will be able to point out and count. Fancifully dressed pigs dance across the pages of the ten little piggies sequence. Swirling, tropical colors make up the background for most pages.

A quick-paced, engaging read. Recommended. ( )

Whose Toes Are Those? is a board book about someone’s sweet feet. It starts with the toes then takes “This Little Piggy” on a ride across the sea and ends with the owner of those precious tootsies.

I love the simple rhyme and the different version of “This Little Piggy.” Talking about baby toes helps little ones find their feet and is a fun way to spend time together with touching and smiling and tickling.

In the classroom we could trace our feet and try to match them up with the person they belong to. We could work on memorizing the rhyme “This Little Piggy” and sing the song “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.”
