Baby Touch Animal Book
Baby Touch Animal Book, by Justine Smith
This is one of the coolest baby board books I've ever seen, for so many reasons. I'm a big fan of books that engage more than just one or two senses, and this one is fun to look at, fun to read out loud, and fun to touch, as each page includes fun textures and shapes for Baby to feel. The colourful design will appeal to babies without being too "busy" -- there are just enough shapes and objects on each page to keep their attention, but not too many to overwhelm them and cause them to lose interest. "Baby, touch," is how each page begins, so your little one will love exploring the cat's furry tummy and the elephant's rough ears while they wander through the zoo of different animals. It's great for teaching so many things -- colours, shapes, animals, textures, sounds... and it's a massive 26x26cm, so a great size for little fingers to turn the pages without being too bulky to hold. Another excellent choice at a reasonable price that would be a fantastic gift.
