Welcome to Saturday Story Spotlight, my feature where I discuss books my husband and I are reading with our son, Daniel. These are books that he, we, or all of us particularly enjoy.
Touch and Feel Baby Animals by DK Publishing
Published by DK Preschool, an imprint of DK Publishing
Spring is (more or less) here, and Easter is coming up! Our local children’s museum has eggs and chicks as the new rotating exhibit, so it is definitely time to read books about baby animals.
Of all of these types of books that Daniel has so far, my favorite by far is Touch and Feel Baby Animals from DK. I picked it up in the first place mainly because of the fact is is from DK, I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed by something they have put out.
Why is this my favorite tactile animal book? A couple of reasons. First of all, in addition to the baby chicks, rabbits, and calves, they also include baby elephants and even baby gorillas! I love that they move beyond the barnyard. Also, they do a great job of rich language with varied verbs and adjectives. We stroke, scratch, feel, touch, and tickle the soft, rough, fluffy, velvety, and furry baby animals.
Daniel just prefers it because he’s a big fan of tickling things, and he loves being told to tickle the baby gorilla.
