Book Review: The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss

If you haven't read The Foot Book yet, now is the time! Dr. Seuss is one of the most classic and beloved authors of our time and this book is one of my favorites written by him. Check it out at your local library or purchase it an amazon.com

This book is a great helper to start teaching your child their rights and lefts. After reading this book have your child trace out several left and right feet on card stalk paper using their own shoes. Cut them out and then label them left and right. You can laminate them if you want them to last longer too. Use masking tape to stick them to the floor. Start by arranging them in a simple left right left right pattern. Have your child hop and jump to each of the foot prints using the appropriate foot. Have them say left on the left foot and right on the right. Once they have the simple pattern down try mixing it up.

Place 2 lefts in a row, a right and then 2 lefts. Next try switching the left foot to the right side and vice verse. See if they can still remember which foot is which. Hopefully this will motivate them to learn their lefts and rights. Have fun with it!
