We love touchy feel books in our house! And this is “touchy feel week” over at Red Ted Art! If you like our book reviews, all previously posted books are reviewed again on my Amazon store – proceeds go towards prizes and charity! Also the Amazon store is a little easier to browse, than the books reviewed on the blog!
Baby Touch: Numbers, by Ladybird. A very sweet touchy feely book for the littlest amongst us. Introducing numbers 1-5. But I simple love the Number 3 – with the softest cutest little cats! Red Ted has always picked this one up and loved playing with it. Now it is Pip Squeaks (7 mths) turn!
Animal Hide and Seek (Farmyard Tales) by Stephen Cartwright. Although this book is part of a “series of Usborne” books, I think it is one of the lovelier ones. We have the “classic Usborne farm” with Daisy the Cow and Poppy and Sam, the Children. Plus little ducky hiding on every page. But what we really like about this touchy feely book, is how “real” the touchy feel bits are – there is a great bristly fabric for a thistle and the sheep have a woolly coat, there is shiny water in the trough and a corrugated card on the tractor. Add to this, that there is a flap on each page (where is Daisy/ Cluck etc hiding?), there is lots to do for little hands. On top of that, we have some counting AND the “find the ducky” activity. Lovely book!
Alphabet, by Matthew Van Fleet. Red Ted was given this book when he was around 14 months old, and he couldn’t then, nor can now keep his hands off it. Touchy feely. Pull outs. Sticky bits… what more do you want? It comes with the most beautiful wallchart that has some amazing pop ups. I do have to confess, that he is only allowed this one “under supervision” as he used to get overexcited and pull things off (even though he knows better). What is nice for the parent: well obviously, it is the alphabet… but I do like the unusual textures, like the sticky octopus and the rough tongue of the lion!
