Buzzy's Feet by Uncle Amos and Carmi Katz is a delightful children's animal pictorial book which introduces readers to the concepts of self-confidence and self-acceptance. Buzzy is a spunky little duckling who is unhappy with his own feet when he begins to tire one day as he is hiking. He decides he wants to change his feet to be like those of other animals. The king of the forest grants his wish multiple times, but what Buzzy learns from this experience is not what he expected at all.
Children are attracted to stories with fun characters and lively illustrations. Authors Uncle Amos and Carmi Katz have created both these desired interests within the pages of Buzzy's Feet. For example, the authors use different types of animals to represent a designated character within the story. Animals are often a comfort for children, much like a stuffed animal, and therefore having animals for characters will allow for a child to keep their attention on the story, thus making for an easy and comprehensible read. The authors have created a fun and interesting story to teach a valuable life lesson to children. Having a lesson within the story plot makes it a valuable reference for teachers and parents alike.
As an avid reader of children's books, this book has become one of my favorite children's stories because of the story plot and message being conveyed. In life it is very important for children to understand that they are unique and have been equipped with their own special features and gifts to succeed in their own individual way in life. I would recommend this book to readers of all ages.
