Following on from the acclaimed Whose Beak is This?, author Gillian Candler and illustrator Fraser Williamson turn to looking at feet. In Whose Feet are These?, New Zealand native animals including birds, reptiles, an insect, a mammal and more reveal their feet for children to guess their identity. While having fun guessing whose feet belong to whom, young children will learn an important science concept about adaptation – that animals’ feet are adapted to their different habitats and lifestyles. Being encouraged to look closely at the pictures teaches observation skills and helps children discover how diverse our native animals are.
