Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes...
Want to take a trip to fun land? Then you must read Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes...by Annie Kubler. In the spirit of the children's song "If you're Happy and You Know it, Clap Your Hands", Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes... is a fun board book that toddlers and adults will both love.
As a supporter of the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign, I was impressed by the illustrations of toddlers from different cultures. Not only does the illustrations show babies moving different parts of the body, the illustrations also show various animals - pigs, rabbits and kittens mirroring the baby's actions finding each body part, a cute addition that will cater to the humor of any young child.
It's an excellent book for teaching very young children about the parts of the body in a fun way. It is also great for teaching toddlers coordination skills which can be a challenge for some children with special needs. For adults who know how to read music, the music for the song is featured on the book's back cover.
If you want to introduce your young one to a fun, musical book, you can go wrong with this one!
