Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 1990 November)
PreS-Gr 1-- Aliki's colorful, multiethnic illustrations help present the subjects of feet and hands in a clear, concise manner. In My Feet , children are shown running, jumping, and hopping in bare feet and in all sorts of footwear. The text covers anatomy of the foot, footprints, being ticklish, and even activities to try with the feet (like drawing). The text of My Hands is essentially the same as the original edition, with added sentences about bones, disabilities, and even veins. The illustrations are much improved, bright and updated, with minorities and handicapped children well represented, performing activities such as drawing, clapping, and talking in sign language. Mention is made in this edition about left-handedness and the difference between children's and adults' hands. Both texts are simple and straightforward, without being condescending. Two fine introductions to human anatomy. --Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, Buffalo, NY Copyright 1990 Cahners Business Information.
