"Looking at one thing very closely can certainly be fascinating, and comparing the feet...of a wide range of animals and insects can lend insight into the similarities and differences among creatures.... close-up photographs are excellent. Often they catch animals in exciting motion...Smaller color drawings of animals add both information and visual interest....young animal lovers will enjoy the books a lot."--Booklist.

Feet are neat! They jump, they climb, they swim, they dance. Animal paws have claws that dig and scratch any itch that they can reach. A dog uses them to hold a bone in place or get a person's attention. The squirrel uses its small, sharp feet to scamper up a tree and race along a branch--or grab a nut to eat. Raccoon's paws are so nimble that they can pluck cherries, husk corncobs, crack open bird eggs, and feel for clams in a muddy stream. And, every animal--humans included--uses its feet to run from danger. Watch them in action, in photos and in drawings, to see just why feet can't be beat!

Baker & Taylor
Describes how different animals, such as dogs, racoons, and squirrels, use their feet for finding and eating food.
