Board Books about Bodies

Heads and Tails by Carli Davidson

Heads and Tails by Carli Davidson (9781452151373, Amazon)

This is the best of three books in a board book series that focuses on photographs of dogs. This very simple board book goes through body parts of dogs from eyes to teeth to tails. Each body part is shown in two ways, one very tight close up and then a full picture of the dog from farther away. It’s a book that invites pointing to lots of things and talking about them.

So Many Feet by Nichole Mara

So Many Feet by Nichole Mara, illustrated by Alexander Vidal (9781419723186, Amazon)

A look at the feet of many different animals shows how widely different animals and habitats are. A touch of information is shared for each animal, just enough for the youngest scientist. The illustrations are bright and bold, embracing the colors and feeling of each habitat and showing the animal using their feet to explore their world. The book ends with children thinking about what their own feet can do.
