Did you know that a sea star has hundreds of feet? Or that a camel has only two toes? These are just two of the fascinating facts included in Fantastic Feet Up Close. From digging and dancing to clinging and climbing, early elementary readers will be delighted by the variety of ways the animals around us use their feet. A fun guessing game at the end of the book introduces readers to the idea that some animals have as four hundred feet.

Research Notes
“This is a book I’ve been wanting to write for years. As I did research for other books about animals, I couldn’t help but notice that animals use their feet in all kinds of ways. Fantastic Feet Up Close finally gave me a chance to share all the fun foot facts I’ve been collecting.”
“These titles introduce specific body parts and discuss their unique functions. These well-thought-out titles are suitable for beginning readers looking for some fascinating facts, and the excellent photography will draw them into the books. There is also a guessing game at the back of each volume. Solid additions to most collections.”
