About the Author

Eric Carle is an internationally bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator of books for very young children including his most well-known title The Very Hungry Caterpillar. With his late wife, Barbara, Eric Carle co-founded The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Massachusetts in 2002.Eric Carle divides his time between the Florida Keys and the hills of North Carolina.


As the artist's collages emulate animal movements, children will "eagerly clap, stomp, kick and wriggle their way through these pages," said PW. Ages 4-8. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

PreS‘Animals and multiethnic children illustrate various body movements on large, double-page spreads. A giraffe bends its neck, a monkey waves its arms, etc. The repetitive text has the animal stating the movement and asking, "Can you do it?" Each child responds, "I can do it!" Carle's vivid cut-paper collages are striking and invite sharing individually or with a group. There is no story‘rather the book is an invitation to get everyone moving. A nice addition to a toddler storytime, but it may get lost as it's cataloged in 613.7.‘Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY

Alison Collins on
A simple story with delightful illustrations that all children can enjoy. Emerging readers can anticipate and read the words themselves. I intend to use it with children with special needs to help them get to know and move their body parts.

This is a great book, we got this book only today and my little one has fallen in love with it, great pictures and an easy way to learn body parts as well as animals,
Eric Carle's books are a joy to use in the junior classroom or with younger children at home.
From Head to Toe can be used when studying parts of the body and the children love to imitate the movements.
I have used this book in the classroom before and it lends itself to a range of studies; from animals, movement and physical education and art. I did a lovely activity with collage during an Eric Carle author study.
It could also be used as a lead in to an integrated puppets/drama and movement activity.
Pattern and print could also be studied with his illustrations and the opportunities are endless. Just another clever Eric Carle book which can be unpacked with so many learning opportunities.
