More About the Author

Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss - was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book - And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street - was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books.

Product Description

Amazon Review

All fetishes aside, The Foot Book is a delightful tribute to the diverse and multifaceted world of feet. Not merely a realm of ankles, arches, and toes--as this self-proclaimed "Wacky Book of Opposites" attests--the podiatry province welcomes all kinds: "Slow feet/Quick feet/Well feet/Sick feet." Dr. Seuss has put his best foot forward here, in a whimsical approach to showcasing opposites. Wet feet contrast dry feet, and low feet contrast high feet. Though hot feet and cold feet aren't specifically referenced, we get the sense that those are okay too. As usual, the rhymes are quick and quirky, and Seuss's illustrations will knock kids' socks off. (Under fives) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 18 May 2004
Format: Paperback
Researchers constantly find that reading to children is valuable in a variety of ways, not least of which are instilling a love of reading and improved reading skills. With better parent-child bonding from reading, your child will also be more emotionally secure and able to relate better to others. Intellectual performance will expand as well. Spending time together watching television fails as a substitute.
To help other parents apply this advice, as a parent of four I consulted an expert, our youngest child, and asked her to share with me her favorite books that were read to her as a young child. The Foot Book was one of her picks.
Dr. Seuss understood the elements of a successful early reader: Lots of repetition, visual adjectives, and hilarious drawings to tie it all together and keep the child racing forward. The Foot Book is perhaps his most successful basic reader.
But what makes this book even more remarkable is that it teaches basic concepts as well such as left versus right (that most chidren are sorting out at this age), high and low, front and back, and counting.
I was further impressed by the obvious encouragement for children to notice feet, and become better observers. You can follow up in this way with your child by asking her or him what was noticed that day about feet.
Please note that this book is quite different from the board book that came out with a similar title in 1996. Avoid that one, and use this one instead.
Have a ball with feet!

Format: Hardcover
One of the shorter Seuss books, but just enchanting (and that's not a word I often use!). Simple, but who else would have thought of writing a book just about "how many many feet you meet"? It's all short rhymes, easy words (his feet, her feet, fuzzy fur feet). I read it already to my 5 month old daughter, and she loves the pictures and the rythm of it all.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 23 July 1999
Format: Board book
I bought this book for my 10 month old son and he loves it. We read it to him three or four times a day and he still gets excited every time we get it out. Its best read in one go and quite quickly, that way it sounds like a great poem. He likes to 'read' it himself now just looking at the pictures. I can recite the whole thing now without looking at the book

Format: Paperback
As with all Dr Seuss books this is an excellent way for little ones to learn. This time about right and left. It took maybe three reads for my two year old granddaughter to "get it". All learning done with laughter and fun as learning should be. My sons were brought up with Dr Suess and now their children are. Highly recommended.

Very catchy little book, although it is the sort that entwines itself into your brain and you find yourself reciciting it at random moments.
There are so many feet in the world and this book features just a small number of feet you can meet on the average day

By Mr. A. J. Hewitt on 1 Jun. 2011
Format: Paperback
My three and a half year old son finds the Foot Book great fun. But it's Dr Seuss so there's no surprise in that. It has the eccentricity - and surreality to make it fun for us to read again and again.
