    One thought on “Whose Knees Are These?”

    1. "Whose Knees Are These" by Jabari Asim was fantastic. I found this book in the library while looking through the children's section for a book to read to my daughter. She loved it, and she laughed the whole way through.cially since I pointed to her knees as I was reading the book. Mr. Asim, along with his illustrator LeUyen Pham, has come up with such a creative way to teach children about their kneesd, the pictures flow right along with the story. It was such a great read, and a wonderful why f [...]

    2. We bought this sweet little board book as a gift. It's delightfully illustrated and very fun to read aloud. Young ones with strong brown knees will love this book.

    3. There is something to be said about a child being able to see themselves in a book. I truly appreciate that in this book the child is darker in complexion so that those who are similar can relate. It also has a great rhythm to it that is absolutely adorable.

    4. Perfect for baby/toddler storytime. Use for body part theme. Would follow with singing "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes"

    5. Sweet and simple story about a little boy’s knees – running, swinging from a tree, and dangling from a boat.

    6. My 20 month old son has been enjoying this book for months, asking for it to be read to him over and over again. The text flows nicely, the rhyme enjoyable and the illustrations are fun. I've been using this book to teach my son the difference between his left side and right side. What I really appreciate is that this board book depicts a non-white/caucasian boy as the central character. This promotes diversity which is much needed in all media and formats, and shows my son that there are childr [...]

    7. This book, by the author of Whose Toes Are Those?, features a baby boy as the main character. It's a cute board book, but I find the rhythm a bit off when I read it. It is fun to read as an interactive book.

    9. This is the sweetest board book I totally love it. The illustrations are colorful and bright making them a perfect companion for the rhyming text. I always give it as a baby shower giftd sometimes as a non baby shower gifts too it's that cute :)

    10. A rhyming look at knees. A great read aloud that features an African-American child as the main character. The artwork has a soft, old-timey feel.

    11. This was cute, and is told in rhyme. It's good for phonological awareness and print awareness. I'd recommend it for ages 0-2.

    12. A delightful story for early readers. I really appreciated that the child in the story was of non-European heritage (or at least appearance).

    13. This board book is cute, and my son loves it because the little boy in the book looks like him. I'm always glad when I find good children's books with African-American characters.

    14. This is a book for toddlers or very young readers. The words flow easily and the rhyming makes it a little more bearable to read as an adult.I gave this book a 1 star rating because although the illustrations are cute and it rhymes nicely, there is not a whole lot of content there. Im not even sure what the theme or moral of this book is.
