Encouraging young children to learn through sight and touch, these durable early-concept books help develop sensory awareness and create an interactive learning experience. These books provide parents with a fun way to introduce basic science concepts such as size, weight, time, speed, and temperature. A sweet little snail embarks on a journey around the garden, unperturbed that other creatures around her are very speedy. The brightly colored pages invite children to identify objects and animals that are faster and bigger than the tiny guide. Touch-and-feel textures include a silky green leaf and a fuzzy felt athletic shoe.
