This collection of zany rhymes feature various parts of the body - hands, feet, eyes, knees and bellies - and what they get up to.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- A compilation of lists of noses, hands, feet, eyes, knees, and bellies--what they do, where they go, and whose they are. While at first the lists may seem quite ordinary, they will draw readers in with their simple rhymes and rhythm. Multiethnic children and a variety of creatures weave around the four-line groups of text, expanding it with their antics. Colors ranging from bright shades to pastels are softly outlined. The book is not without its flaws, however. Sometimes a picture misses the mark, as a baby floating in a bubble has no obvious relation to "noses," and the rhymes are occasionally strained. Because children will need time to match picture and happening, this is a one-on-one or independent-reading title. While not so wildly imaginative as Rosen's earlier books, it could prompt children to see these body parts "Wiggle, wiggle, Jiggle, Jiggle, Hop, Hop, Pop, Pop, Knobble, knobble, Wobble, wobble." --Jane Saliers, Atlanta-Fulton Public Library

From Publishers Weekly:

"I'm talking about noses / wet noses / warty noses / sleepy noses / when someone dozes," writes Rosen ( We're Going on a Bear Hunt ) in the opening lines of this spirited celebration of children's noses, hands, feet, eyes, knees and bellies. In verses featuring an informal rhyming scheme and a pleasantly irregular rhythm, the author elaborates on (among other things) what these body parts can do and where they can be found. Finally, he involves readers in the tongue-twisting text, entreating youngsters to give those hands a wave, those feet a tickle, those knees a scratch, etc. Sweeten fills each page with kids, grownups and animals involved in colorful, zany antics. Sometimes nonsensical, sometimes silly and always lighthearted, this paper-over-board book is ideal for reading aloud. Its verbal and visual action is nonstop. Ages 5-8.
