Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What does an elephant do? It stomps its foot. Can you? From the creator of such beloved classics as The Grouchy Ladybug and The Mixed-Up Chameleon comes this interactive story that invites kids to imitate animal movements. Watching giraffes bend their necks or monkeys wave their arms is fun, but nothing could be better than joining in. From their heads down to their toes, kids will be wriggling, jiggling, and giggling as they try to keep up with these animals!Alligators wiggle, elephants stop, gorillas thump, and giraffes bend. Can you do it? ' I can do it!' is the confidence-building message of this fun-filled interactive picture book. A variety of familiar animals invite young children to copy their antics, and as they play, they will learn such important skills as careful listening, focusing attention, and following instructions. Just as alphabet books introduce the very young child to letters and simple words, From Head to Toe introduces the basic body parts and simple body movements. And in the same way that children progress from understanding simple words to reading and writing sentences and stories, so they will progress from simple body movements to dancing, gymnastics, and other sports and activities, with confidence and pleasure.

Eric Carle's colorful collages have delighted children for more than a generation. Each book provides hours of fun while encouraging them to stretch their imaginations. His matchless words and illustrations now send out a new challenge:

Are you ready?
Here we go!
Move yourself
From Head to Toe.

Synopsis:

Alligators wiggle, elephants stomp, gorillas thump, and giraffes bend in this confidence-building, "I can do it!" book by the author of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and "The Grouchy Ladybug". Just as alphabet books introduce very young children to letters and simple words, "From Head to Toe" teaches them about basic body parts and simple body movements. Carle's colorful collage illustrations add to the merriment.
