What I Like: The text is wonderful. My kids love pointing out their different body parts (eyes, ears, nose, knees, mouth, teeth, hair, hands, fingers and toes) as we read. The book provides a wonderful message in a fun-to-learn way. I adore the bright colors and the size and strength of this book.
What I Dislike: The drawings. I love the bright colors, but the drawings are weird. For some reason all the characters have dark circles around their eyes. The main character, sporting blue rings around his eyes, looks like he has been hit twice in the face with a baseball. Proportions are off, too. A parrot is the same size as a child; the ostrich is bigger than a giraffe. I would love to see the text coupled with different illustrations. My kids don't seem to notice ... they love the book.
Overall Rating: Good.
Age Appeal: 4 and under
