Item description for From Head to Toe by Eric Carle...

Join in the fun with the gorillas, giraffes, elephants, and other animals, as they do things like wave their arms and touch their heads while the reader imitates them. Original.

Publishers Description

What does an elephant do? It stomps its foot. Can you? From the creator of such beloved classics as The Grouchy Ladybug and The Mixed-Up Chameleon comes this interactive story that invites kids to imitate animal movements. Watching giraffes bend their necks or monkeys wave their arms is fun, but nothing could be better than joining in. From their heads down to their toes, kids will be wriggling, jiggling, and giggling as they try to keep up with these animals

More About Eric Carle

Eric Carle The secret of Eric Carle’s books’ appeal lies in his intuitive understanding of and respect for children, who sense in him instinctively someone who shares their most cherished thoughts and emotions.

The themes of his stories are usually drawn from his extensive knowledge and love of nature—an interest shared by most small children. Besides being beautiful and entertaining, his books always offer the child the opportunity to learn something about the world around them. It is his concern for children, for their feelings and their inquisitiveness, for their creativity and their intellectual growth that, in addition to his beautiful artwork, makes the reading of his books such a stimulating and lasting experience.

Eric Carle has received many distinguished awards and honours for his work, including, in 2003, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for his lifetime contribution to children's literature and illustration.

Carle says: “With many of my books I attempt to bridge the gap between the home and school. To me home represents, or should represent; warmth, security, toys, holding hands, being held. School is a strange and new place for a child. Will it be a happy place? There are new people, a teacher, classmates—will they be friendly?

I believe the passage from home to school is the second biggest trauma of childhood; the first is, of course, being born. Indeed, in both cases we leave a place of warmth and protection for one that is unknown. The unknown often brings fear with it. In my books I try to counteract this fear, to replace it with a positive message. I believe that children are naturally creative and eager to learn. I want to show them that learning is really both fascinating and fun.”

Eric Carle has two grown-up children, a son and a daughter. With his wife Barbara, he divides his time between the Florida Keys and the hills of North Carolina.

Loved as a baby and loves it now  May 25, 2008
My little boy started doing all the motions at about 10 months and now loves to read this book by himself, all the motions are great for learning body parts and animals.
EXCELLENT  Dec 28, 2007
We LOVE this book, we play out the little roles of each animal and along with it learn the parts of the body and the movements. We have a lot of fun with this and laugh every time we read it together.
From Head to Toe  Dec 22, 2007
I used this previously to teach body part recognition to a student with severe autism. He loved it! Now I use it with one and two year olds and it is there favorite, plus doing the actions with the book helps them work out the wiggles.
Great  Dec 20, 2007
My son is 2 and we love this book. Its great for teaching body parts and involving him with action during reading.
FUN FOR CHILD & PARENTS!!  Oct 14, 2007
if you want to see your child's real personality come out, buy this book! I bought this book after we purchased "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" by Eric Carle, which our 32 mo. old son loves! Well, "head to toe" is now his favorite book. we call it his exercise book. we all do the movements together & my son cracks us up with the way he moves, especially when he wiggles his hips!!! - way too cute! it's a great book to read during the day or at bedtime, then we read him 2 other "quieter" books before bedtime to settle him down. my son can't read yet, but i find him looking at this book on his own & imitating the movements!! that is really cute. our son has become so animated when we read this book to him - it is really hilarious. our 20 mo. old twin girls also enjoy it, too! i'm thinking of buying a 2nd copy for grandma's house. i can't say enough good things about this book, except that it will be as entertaining for you as it is for your child!
