To be honest, this book was a bit of a panic grab in the library last time we visited. I always get the same number of books out so that I know we haven’t lost any when it comes to return them. I was struggling to find enough I liked (note to self, don’t go to the library on a Saturday again), so ended up choosing The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss. But it ended up being quite a good choice!
It’s not that I had anything against Dr. Seuss, in fact I love How the Grinch Stole Christmas, but I wasn’t sure if Rosalie would enjoy his style at only 15 months old. But how wrong could I be? As it turns out she rather likes feet.
And in The Foot Book, we meet an awful lot of different kinds of feet… Wet foot, dry foot, low foot, high foot, front feet, back feet, red feet, black feet.
As is expected with a Dr. Seuss book, there is lots of repetition and rhyming and the story (or is it more of a poem?) has a fantastic pace.
Although she can’t understand the concept of how all these feet are different, Rosalie seems to enjoy the repetition of the words foot and feet, and stamps her little feet along with the words.
And of course the illustrations are lots of fun to look at too.
