Synopsis

Featuring spreads with raised, shaped objects that fit into scooped cutouts on their opposite page, these new TouchThinkLearn books offer the youngest learners an opportunity to explore in a hands-on, multisensory way. Seeing the image, tracing its shape, saying its name—these modes of perception combine to stimulate understanding of essential concepts. Discover a polar bear by tracing its raised outline on one side, and the concave shape of its cozy den on the other! Related words on each spread offer a springboard for further conversation to encourage the language skills crucial to later successful learning. In a format unlike any other, these groundbreaking books translate abstract thought into tangible knowledge.

a mix of nouns and verbs that give readers plenty to point out and discuss: “jaw,” “teeth,” “snapping,” “chomping,” and “basking” are among the words included for a riverside scene featuring green crocodiles. A stylish animal introduction with real vocabulary-boosting potential.
