SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
Celebrating a delightful milestone -- when babies discover their feet! -- and encouraging plenty of toe-tickling fun, this rhyming read aloud guarantees giggles for both parents and tots.MY TAKE:
My son doesn't usually laugh when you try to tickle his feet, but I thought I'd give this one a try anyway because it sounded like a fun book.
In Tickly Toes, parents and their child share in the joy of the little child discovering his toes and being tickled.
I thought the rhymes were quite funny and cute. My son likes touching his toes and hates wearing shoes too, so at least in those things, I was able to relate to the book.
The illustration style was not my type, but I thought the baby was cute. The medium used was okay too. Before I found out that it was acrylic and pencil, I noted that it seemed to be done in "paint or watercolor" and that there are "black pastel-like smudges that appear to represent shadows". So if you're familiar with the said media, you'll have an idea what the illustrations may look like.
