Child development specialists have shown that children learn best when they acquire knowledge through multiple senses. Not only sight and sound, but touch as well, are critical elements in their development. Children love learning to name objects and they are in for a multisensory treat with this big book containing 150 words and 30 touch-and-feel elements. Featuring many things familiar in a young child's world-a soft blanket, the smooth skin of a dolphin, a rough-textured sack-this generously oversized volume helps young readers build vocabulary and develop picture and word associations. The perfect baby shower gift!
