My son and daughter (14 months) love this book! It has great simple rhymes, and is nice for talking about body parts (where they are on characters and on you). Plus the pictures are simple and engaging.

Good rhymes identifying all the different parts of the body for younger children. This would be a great book to buy and read often enough that your child has the rhyme memorized about all the different body parts.

This book give children a look at the parts that make up our bodies and what they are used for. A sweet explanation of body parts in a rhyming text. Some highlights are, 'Here are my cheeks for kissing blushing' and 'Here are my knees for falling down'. Every child can connect with some of the statements about the body parts. Charming multicultural illustrations show similarities between people of all backgrounds. A wonderful lesson to learn at an early age.

Short simple text about body parts and the things they do and are good for, also used for senses.

We started reading this book before our boy was a year old. He's twenty months now and has been bringing it to us to read for quite a while. We read TOGETHER as there's lots of room for participation and/or learning body parts as well as actions. One of my son's top five favorite books. We love all the beautiful pictures and diversity of faces.

We we talking about body parts in the preschool class I was in. While many of the student could already name their noses, ears, feet, etc., the interest was high, and after reading it on three different occasions, they were 'reading' it back to me! This is also good for younger children who are learning body parts.
