“Look at those feet! Aren’t they sweet?” Yes—when they’re walking, standing, leaping, and landing. And when they’re kicking balls or leaves. But not when they’re kicking people!
In simple words and charming full-color illustrations, this bilingual English-Spanish book helps toddlers learn to use their feet for fun, not in anger or frustration. It also includes tips for parents and caregivers in both languages on how to help toddlers be sweet with their feet.
