Horns to Toes and in Between: 10/02/08
Horns to Toes and in Between by Sandra Boynton is one of our collection of her books. The book plays with the "Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes" song that preschoolers learn. It's the song if it were being taught to monsters instead of children.
Besides entertaining through the silly interpretation of the song, the book does teach useful things like counting one to ten and basic anatomy (head, tongue, and feet for example).
The illustrations are colorful and done in pastels. The monsters are cute and fuzzy and not at all scary. Harriet's favorite pages are tone one where they show off their belly buttons and where they stick out their tongues.
