Toesy Toes

by Sarah Yi-Mei Tsiang

tagged: body, senses & sensation, imagination & play
Description

Toes have long had their place in songs, where they head off to market and enjoy roast beef, but they have been overlooked and underrepresented in children's books. That's all about to change with this rhyming board book featuring piggledy-wiggledy digits in all their delightful glory. Toesy Toes head to the beach, jump around, take a bath and delight in being one of a baby's most adorable parts. Sarah Tsiang's clever couplets will have little ones reaching for this book come story time, perhaps even with their toes.

Editorial Reviews

"An adorable board book offering from Orca, that will be sure to delight babies, toddlers, and their parents alike…The photos perfectly represent the text without exception, and each page begs to be acted out by the reader for the sure-to-be-delighted listener. The featured children show a diverse group…and it is nice to see such representation in a preschool-level book. Highly recommended for the littlest of future readers!"
