Praise For Who Has These Feet?…
“…this title earns its own place on current picture-book shelves.” —School Library Journal
“Brooks' watercolor scenes, which ably highlight both adaptation and environment, will perform well for individual readers and small class groups.” —BCCB
“Brooks's naturalistic yet affable animals will likely inspire readers to take a closer look at their own feet.” —Publishers Weekly
“The simple text, the colorful illustrations, and the guessing game combine to make this an engaging picture book for reading aloud.” —Booklist
“The text and concept are refreshingly simple, while still educating and entertaining. The richly colored and realistic watercolor illustrations depict child-friendly beasts without anthropomorphizing them. A gatefold at the conclusion brings all the animals together, and a checkerboard of heads and feet on its flaps is a ready-made matching game….Young animal fans will find much to enjoy and are sure to ask for multiple readings.” —Kirkus Reviews
