Book Overview

I just don't know what's going on? Or why it has to be? But every day it's something worse! What's happening to me? So begins this uproarious new story from the best-selling creator of No Jumping on the Bed!, Green Wilma, and other popular books. The young narrator has discovered a disturbing trend: There's fuzz in his belly button, his toes are peeling, and something just fell out of his nose. The last straw is a loose tooth, which convinces him...

Great! Hilarious!

I bought this book not really knowing what to expect. I love it! My husband, on the onter hand, doesn't think he wants to read it to our daughter. She is too young for the book now, at 1 year old. It really addresses things that children tend to concern themselves with at one time or another -- in a very comical way! I thought it was great! I showed it to my mother (a second grade teacher) and she thought it was wonderful as well. She told my husband to "just wait!" Children can worry about the strangest things. If nothing else, buy it for yourself and get a good belly laugh!

silly way to learn about the body

I love the pictures and humor in this book. My son and I laugh and laugh when we read it! And it has helped him to learn a little about his body and its parts. There are so many funny details in the drawings.

A 5 star book for young children!

"Parts" by Tedd Arnold is a hilarious book for young children. My son received it as a gift from his kindergarten teacher. It was perfect timing as he was starting to loose his teeth. It's the story of a young boy, who upon loosing his teeth, among other things, thinks that he is falling apart! We just laughed and laughed over this book and read it again and again. I even buy it as a birthday present for all my nieces and nephews for their fifth birthday!

We read it again and again

This offbeat book has become a great favorite. We routinely pack it on vacations because it's lightweight and because we can read it several times in succession without boring anyone. It's also a good bedtime book when you need something short. Jokes in the illustrations make them worth looking at more than once, as well. And despite the premise--that the boy is coming to bits--even our nightmare-prone younger child has never been adversely affected.

I -LOVE- reading this to my son!

I'm not sure who enjoys this book more - me or my son. The story of the little kid who thinks he's falling apart had be laughing like a fool when I first read this in the library of the school I was working in at the time. We've become fans of Tedd Arnold since buying this book. Parts, as well as any of the Huggly books or Arnold's Green Wilma, are sure to please your little readers!
