Synopsis

The simple storylines and vibrant illustrations teach children the fundamentals of the five senses.

For very young children, every moment of every day holds the possibility of a wonderful discovery. This delightful book introduces children to the five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. As they follow a little dog from his first taste of breakfast milk to the feel of a big warm hug to the sound of a soothing bedtime story, children will be encouraged to appreciate the diverse sensory experiences of their own world. Little Dog is a lovable and adventurous pup, while Mother Dog is a warm and reassuring presence. Read aloud, these sweet and simple stories also encourage children to join in and start reading along from an early age.
