Senses is a fascinating introduction to the five senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. Explore the parts of the human body that enable every person to understand the world in which he or she lives. Eyes observe the details of the surrounding world; ears are sensitive to a diversity of sounds; the tongue captures the flavors in our food; the nose recognizes the tiniest bit of scent; the skin lets us know by touch what things are. Examine the super senses of the animal kingdom and discover the creatures with the sharpest eyesight, the most acute sense of smell, and the most delicate sense of touch.
