The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss is a great picture book to introduce babies and toddlers to an important body part, the foot. He introduces children to their left and right foot.
Also, in The Foot Book,(Bright and Early Books for Beginning Beginners) he introduces children to opposite words. While children learn about their feet, he teaches the distinction between the words: front and back. There is other word pair: wet and dry. High and low is another word pair. Up and down is another example.
Dr. Seuss' illustrations are as cute as always. Children around the world love his whimsical characters. The story books have been a favorite for years. The bright, fuzzy characters delight beginning readers.
The Foot Book Board/Picture book uses very simple words. The rhythm of the rhyming text is soothing to infants and toddlers. The large text is easy for beginning readers to read on their own or read to others. Dr. Seuss' funny lines capture children's attention. Dr. Seuss' (Theodor Geisel) book makes a great birthday or Christmas book.
