Today’s blog was written by one of our very own storytellers: Miss Dani. She does our preschool and family storytimes, as well as other children’s programming. She shares her review of the picture book Tiptoe Joe by Ginger Foglesong Gibson.
Tiptoe Joe has an exciting secret to share! Join Beaver, Turkey, Moose, and Joe’s other friends as they quietly make their way through the forest to see the good news. This book uses repetition, rhyme, animal recognition, and onomatopoeia to take readers on a journey which will leave you in “awwww”.
For more fun “toe” related books, check out This Little Piggy by Tim Harrington. This humorous extension of the classic nursery rhyme is sure to please even the pickiest of readers.
Be sure to throw some non-fiction reading into the mix! Try Let’s Look at Animal Feet by Wendy Perkins. How many animal toes/feet can you identify?
