Reviewed by Michelle Robertson for Readers' Favorite

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.

Buzzy’s Feet by Uncle Amos and Carmi Katz is an endearing fable with a timeless message. In this charming children’s ‘feel good’ adventure, Buzzy the duck is unsatisfied with his large webbed feet and (through the magic of the King of the Forest) tries on several different pairs of animal legs for ‘best fit.’ In the interests of avoiding a ‘spoiler,’ it is best just to say that, in the end, Buzzy comes to appreciate the legs he was born with and acknowledges that function is even more important than appearance.

In this modern age where young people are increasingly turning to plastic surgery in an effort to attain the ‘ideal’ appearance and fit in with the ‘beautiful people,’ Buzzy’s experience is entirely relevant and appropriate. Children need to hear messages of self-acceptance more than ever before and earlier than ever before. Buzzy’s Feet by Uncle Amos and Carmi Katz is a perfect vehicle to help children achieve a healthy sense of self esteem; moreover, it would be appropriate for use in any educational setting - home, private, parochial or public.

The authors offer both an e-mail address for dialogue and/or feedback and a link to a video version of the story; these features enhance the reading experience greatly by adding an interactive aspect uncommon in books for children. In addition, the illustrations are bold, colorful and utterly adorable - the range of expressions on the characters’ faces is remarkable, given the homespun manner in which the images are rendered. Buzzy’s Feet is an enchanting children’s story and a perfect means of opening the door for the very young to embrace acceptance of self and others.

Buzzy's Feet is a children's fable written and illustrated by Carmi Katz and Uncle Amos. Buzzy is a duckling who lives with his mother, father, and 4 siblings. They have a very nice life centred around the lake where they swim until one day Buzzy asks the king of the forest for legs that won't get sore and tired when he takes a walk. Buzzy is quite proud of his new horse's legs until he gets home to the lake and finds he can't swim anymore. The king is very patient with Buzzy and changes those horse legs for cow feet, frog legs, and a variety of different animal feet. Finally, the king helps Buzzy out with a perfect pair of feet, his own original duck feet, and he realizes just how splendid they actually are.

Buzzy's Feet is a fable that never gets preachy or dull. This children's tale is beautifully illustrated with bold and bright colorful panels that follow along with each transformation of Buzzy's feet. The story had me smiling from the very first paragraph all the way to the end. Buzzy's Feet is a great selection for children who are struggling with reading on their own as the story and drawings work so well together. It's one of those books that will make kids feel that reading can actually be fun and is not really all that hard after all. Buzzy's Feet is also a great bedtime story that will entertain the reader as well as the child. I enjoyed Buzzy's Feet and recommend it.
