Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Going to return it!! The first few pages are great, and rhyme nicely. Then the book takes a nose dive. It's almost like the author forgot about the nice rhyming rhythm he had created in the previous pages.

About the Author

Bill Martin, Jr. (1916-2004) was an elementary-school principal, teacher, writer, and poet. His more than 300 books, among them the bestselling classics Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?; Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?; Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?; and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, are a testament to his ability to speak directly to children. Martin held a doctoral degree in early childhood education. Born in Kansas, he worked as an elementary-school principal in Chicago before moving to New York City, where he worked in publishing developing innovative reading programs for schools. After several years, he devoted himself full-time to writing his children's books. He lived in New York until 1993, when he moved to Texas. He lived in the east Texas woods, near the town of Commerce, until he passed away in 2004.

John Archambault is a poet, journalist, and storyteller who has collaborated with Bill Martin Jr. and Ted Rand on several books, including Barn Dance! and Knots on a Counting Rope.

Ted Rand (1915-2005) was a prolific artist whose illustrations appeared in several magazines and newspapers, as well as in numerous books for children. He collaborated with both Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault on many books, including The Ghost-Eye Tree.

The rhyming text and vibrant illustrations not only the name the eyes, ears, nose and toes but celebrate children of different backgrounds. A wonderful picture book, Here Are My Hands offers lots of fun while learning.

Editorial Reviews
