The individual fingers have names like thumb and index, but the poor toes don't! It's time to brainstorm what the toes should be called. This board book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children in preK. It’s a fun way to introduce classic concepts like colors and the alphabet. 

As the toes argue and advocate for their preferred name among themselves, kids will learn about concepts like letters, numbers, music notes, colors, and fruits, and celebrate individuality at the same time. This hilarious, chatty book is perfect for younger fans of The Day the Crayons Quit. 

Maybe your little one will decide what names to give to their own toes! 

The big toe wants to be called A, but not everyone agrees with the alphabet theme. The second toe argues they should go for numbers, while the last toe prefers fruits! 

How on earth will they resolve their disagreement?
