Some of the happiest memories I have are reading this book to my son when he was 4 years old. He would just sit and listen, giggle and ask me to read it again and again to him. Thank you Dr. Seuss.

I used to read this book to my brother in the form of a rap song. Now I am an education major and would definitely use this book as an introduction to poetry and syllabication.

This story talks about different types of feet, and the different feelings that feet have.This story is great about giving descriptions of feet and uses different types of feet and what they can do.

"The Foot Book", is a cute book that is all about feet. It includes many of Dr. Seuss's original rhymes. The illustrations are wacky as would be expected of a Dr. Seuss book.This book is a staple at our house. It is almost impossible to get my kids to bed before we read this book. My son has it memorized. I have read it to him since he was six months old. I think it is a really cute picture book.For a classroom project, I would get different colors of construction paper and have my students trace their feet and then cut them out. We would have a bulletin board titled, "All About Feet." I would hang all of their cutouts on the bulletin board.

I loved "The Foot Book" as a child and would recommend it to for early readers. This book is very educational but also funny. He discusses from his head to his toes speaking in rhyming terms to get the readers attention. This book is silly but also teaches children their body parts.

Classic rhyming book to help preschoolers learn patterns.
rjmcwhorter1 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This is definitely a cute book with good illustrations and rhyme scheme, but it is intended for a much younger audience. I don't believe that many classes above kindergarten would find it amusing, but for those learning about feet, and the difference between "left" and "right", they might find it a good read.

Fantastic story for kids to follow.

Who doesn't love Dr. Seuss?!

"The Foot Book" is great for early learners and children that are just beginning to read. The book teaches many things about not only reading, but also rights and lefts, rhyming words, and that the plural form of foot is feet. Along with catchy rhymes, the book has creative and interesting pictures that are sure to capture any child's attention.

Reading Dr. Seuss' "The Foot Book" aloud to your child will not only be a lot of fun, it will also help develop the following early literacy skills:Phonological Awareness: hearing the rhyme and rhythm in the sounds of the words Vocabulary: building up their vocabulary with fun adjectives describing feet

The Foot Book is a fun read for young children just beginning to read. It has lots of rhyming and repeating words which will be good for children just learning words. The pictures are very amusing. Dr.Suess presents a lot of different feet also using different numbers and colors. A great book for 4 or 5 year olds.
Stephanyk on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This book would be appropriate for pre-k through the first grade. There are very few words in the book and the words foot, feet, left and right are repeated numerous times throughout the story. Younger children should be able to follow a long. Also their are colorful and silly pictures that they may like. The book describes all the different kinds of feet and how everyone has different ones.Uses in the classroom:-I would have children trace their feet on a piece of paper and then decorate it. Then I would hang up the pictures all around the room so that children can see that not one will look the same. Under the pictures I would have them write what kind of feet they have. They can either think of their own description or use one from the book.-I would show children a collection of different feet (baby, horse, boy, girl, duck).
