BRONX, N.Y. (PRWEB) August 04, 2012
Feet come in all shapes and sizes. Feet can also signify specific periods— they can jog memories. This is the case for a young girl in My Family’s Feet, an engaging picture book by Paulet Facey. As readers immerse in this endearing tale, they will never view feet in the same way again.
My Family’s Feet begins with a young girl who narrates that she has been in New York City for some time. She is progressing very well but she misses her family and familiar surroundings. In order to make connections and feel less homesick, she starts to reminisce about her family members and their feet. As she recalls the feet and how different they all look, she relates them to the fruits and vegetables found on the farm. She also remembers the pleasant times she spent with her grandmother and grandfather.
The young girl believes feet have an even greater significance because they show the uniqueness of each family member. The memorable occasion with her grandmother in the cellar is brought back to life as a result of her father’s feet. Her sister Lisa-Joy’s feet reminds her of an afternoon learning lessons about parallel lines and Matthew the Christmas tree. Other amusing comparisons await in the pages of this charming tale. Readers learn about how My Family’s Feet can represent different things, they will discover fun perspectives about feet.
This book will be featured at the 2013 American Library Association Annual Book Exhibit in Chicago, Ill. on June 29 – July1, 2013.
