    1. Excellent animal book for toddlers! Great at encouraging them to make inferences and use clues to guess the animal.

    2. To my taste, this book would cover the whole Animalia kingdom. It is such an amazing educational tool, perfect to teach about basic zoology. It covers basic animal groups such as: mammals, amphibians, birds, invertebrates and reptiles. Super appropriate for your small amateur naturalist. This is a book I dearly miss not having growing up. A delight and a treasure. Furthermore, it is made lovelier because of its illustrations: very clear, precise and informative, not failing for one second to be [...]

    3. I have always enjoyed Steve Jenkins's animal books for their specificity-- bones, speed, tails, and motion come to mind. However, they are a little too involved for the 2.5- 3 year old. Well, this book fills the need!! Each animal is introduced by the question "Who has these feet?", followed by a close up drawing showing the top and bottom of the feet. On the next two pages, the reader learns which animal has that foot, claw, or flipper, and why. It won't be long before the story time kids are a [...]

    4. This is losing a star because the "gatefold" trumpeted on the cover is just a foldout double spread showing all the animals. Nothing to get excited about, AND it means this book will tear this much sooner under the handling of toddlers and their parents/nannies who allow them to look at stuff unsupervised! May consider using it for story time before releasing it into the wild, or may just not release it at all :(

    5. My children and I really enjoyed this book, which I wouldn't hesitate to use during storytime for preschool/early elementary. Each entry has the question posed with just the view of the feet---on the following page layout the full view is revealed. Some were really surprising and stumped all of us, which was fun!

    6. Love that the author uses the feet of less regularly used animals like ants and squirrels. Many of the feet I couldn't guess so it would be a fun challenge and show kids a part of animals they likely haven't seen. Includes basic information about each animal's foot. Short and enteratining enough for a storytime.

    7. Storytime win. Kids were super engaged with this one. The pictures alternate between a page depicting a foot, and a page showing what animal that foot goes with, and telling a fact about it. The repetition of Who Has These Feet? is perfect with my preschool crowd, and the illustrations are wonderful.

    8. In a lively guessing game format, find out why the feet of tree frogs, and those of eight other animals, are perfectly adapted to their habitats. Illustrated with brightly detailed paintings, this simple, informative text will have children looking at feet in a whole new way.

    9. Repeating the question Who Has these feet? Each page turn puts the feet into perspective on animals viewed in a natural context. Simple text, vivid illustrations, and a wide range f animal types will keep this interesting and appealing over several readings.

    10. Great detailed illustrations of animals' feet. It's a great book that you can share with very young or a bit older children (I just skipped over the longer descriptions of the animals' feet with my 16 mo old).

    11. In this early nonfiction books, young children are treated to an animal guessing game. Illustrations of feet are matched with their owners. Readers are then presented with a fact about how those feet help animals based on where each animal lives.

    12. A cute book that keeps you guessing throughout, as you try to guess which animal has which feet. My kids loved guessing, and it was interesting to see the ones we got right, and the ones we were way off on.

    13. I loved this book! At first I thought it was just going to be a picture book without much information. The book ended up being very informative about different types of animals and not only used picture illustrations but also included facts about the function of each animals feet!!

    14. An excellent children's book for Maggie. It was a good little activity book for us. She learned who was connected to which feet!

    15. My kids love this book. They're hooked on the engaging guessing game and simply stated information about foot adaptations.

    16. Shows a drawing of an animal's feet. Turning the page reveals the animal and a few facts. Great for young kids interested in animals and maybe a storytime.

    17. Grade 2-3. Structures and functions of animals. Students will be able to determine how different animals use their feet to thrive in their habitats. Flipbook can be used.

    18. Bright illustrations fill this primary NF book. Leading children to guess the answers, the text is simple but clear and informative about adaptations of animal feet for their habitats.

    19. Great science picture book. Lovely drawings and clever guessing game. I really learned something! I will share this with any 3-7 year olds I meet.

    20. Used for Animals theme Bunny Hop with Tiny Little Fly. This would also be excellent for Toddler Time, allowing the older preschoolers to make guesses.
