Synopsis

Seeing, smelling, hearing, touching, tasting is there a child who doesn't wonder how the five senses work?
Kids curiosity about their bodies is limitless. Using a combination of clear information and gentle humor, Harriet Ziefert introduces children to their five senses.
Written in playful verse, yet scientifically accurate (the text has been fact-checked by a science educator), and illustrated with fresh art and simple diagrams, young readers will come away from this book with most, if not all, of their questions about the five senses answered.
