KIRKUS REVIEW

Hindley (The Best Thing about a Puppy, 1998, etc.) offers an open invitation to toddlers to get physical in this joyful celebration of body parts from head to toe. In simple, buoyant verse, and illustrated with equal expression, accessibility, and incitement, Hindley introduces the ears, eyes, the nose, toes, fingers, hands, arms, mouths, lips, necks, and knees. Hide behind those fingers, wiggle and waggle those toes, “legs are for leaping and jumping and dancing. Legs are for kicking and skipping and hopping. Legs are for stomping and suddenly’stopping.” The pleasure of movement flows from these pages, and the pleasure of company: “And I’ll tell you again—Kisses are little, smiles are wide—A hug is a bundle with you inside.” (Picture book. 2-5)
