Must read 🏆

Be ready for an earworm because I think you and your family will sing this song a lot!

"When Your Feet Hit the Street, You Gotta Look Around!" reinvents the vital life lesson "Look both ways before crossing the street" in a fun way with animal characters to educate and entertain young listeners/readers. Using this phrase on repeat - "When your feet hit the street, you gotta look around." - in conjunction with darling illustrations created by Geraldine Nunez, kids will learn the proper way to cross a street. 


Since children have personal phones at an early age, this book points out not to text or stare at your cell when your feet step off the curb. It's good practice not to text and walk in general. Head up is what I tell my kiddos all the time. 


The story also suggests holding an adult's hand when stepping off the curb and crossing a street. It's precisely how my family crosses the road. 


"When Your Feet Hit the Street, You Gotta Look Around!" is a memory aid turned into a SUPER FUN children's book based on a children's song Gabriella Fantoccini wrote. Great news - you'll receive a FREE MP3 Download of the song with every purchase. What a marvelous gift from the author! Now, if you're wondering if you're following the right beat, guess no further. Be ready for an earworm because I think you and your family will sing this song a lot! Oh, I'd like to note the lyrics are in the back of the book. 


Amazon's recommended reading age for When Your Feet Hit the Street, You Gotta Look Around! is 3 - 8 years (grade level: preschool - 3); however, I think toddlers might enjoy the catchy tune. Let's start teaching them street safety at an early age! 


I will recommend this book to my school's librarian and fellow elementary school parents. It's a book that should be read often!

As an author, I know the importance of book reviews. I've been constructing reviews for a decade and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. FYI: I will be sharing some of the books I read through this site on my blog, Instagram, and Twitter. #KamsPlace Don't forget to tip your waitress! :D

Synopsis

Kids should look both ways before crossing the street, but what about when they are actually in the street?

When my daughter was little, she would make a big show out of looking both ways BEFORE crossing the street, but when she was actually in the street, she completely zoned out.

I was concerned that somehow she might wind up in the street one day when I wasn’t around, so I came up with the memory aid, “When Your Feet Hit the Street, You Gotta Look Around!”

It worked!

Whenever her feet were in the street, she was aware that she had to keep looking around until she safely reached the sidewalk.

"When Your Feet Hit the Street, You Gotta Look Around!" is a memory aid turned into a SUPER FUN children's book based on a children's song I also wrote.

A free download of the song is included with the book.

Have fun singing along with your little ones as you turn the pages, reminding them to look left, look right, look all around!
