Format: Hardcover
Appealing pictures accompany a straight forward text. "Sometimes I use all my senses at once...When I laugh and play with my puppy, I use four senses. I see, hear, smell and touch...each sense is very important to me because it makes me aware. To be aware is to see all there is to see...hear all there is to hear...[etc]." I like the progression from simple statements to more complex ideas, especially the use of the word 'aware'. How many early readers are aware of the word 'aware' and connect it to their senses? After reading this book, they all will!

My 5 year old son absolutely adores this book. He asks me to read it repeatedly, and has fun pointing out when he's using his senses just like the (adorably illustrated) child in Aliki's book does. It's a lively, fun introduction to an important scientific concept.

This is the perfect book for reading to kids, and for kids to begin to learn to read. It is very well thought out, covers an excellent topic, has a seamless match between the words and the illustrations, and has a generous amount of repetition to learn the five senses. I like reading it to my kids, and my oldest spends some time reading it to herself and has some of the pages memorized.

The book was well written with nice pictures. I guess that my comments are more about how the book is marketed. It lists 4-8 as its target audience. As a parent read book, this should be listed as more of a 2-3 year old book. I don't think that this would be my choice of a learning to read book. I thought that the book was about science. On that note, my barely 4 year old daughter had already learned about smelling, seeing etc. I had hoped that the book would have taken senses to another level, but it didn't. I would strongly recommend this book to parents of younger children, but it was regretfully a one and done for my daughter.

This is a wonderful book for beginning readers that will introduce then to the concept of our five senses and how they make us aware of the world around us when used one at a time or in combinations.

Scientific concepts are simply explained for kindergarten or preschool children, who will most certainly be entranced by the lively illustrations.

This book is excellent, even for a preschool aged child, as it really breaks down the five senses in a basic way. An example is provided for each sense and then, the book explains that sometimes senses are used at the same time- examples are provided for this concept, as well! I used it in my preschool class when our theme was "The Five Senses!"

I am so glad that Amazon offers these classic children's books. It makes the life of a church librarian easier. I needed to replace a tattered copy of My Five Senses by Aliki and was so happy to find this copy with its colorful cover to add to our children's collection. This is a great book to introduce children to the concept that we have five senses and how we use them.

[[ASIN:006445083X My Five Senses (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1)]

My 4.5 year old pre-kindergarten girls loved this book. It was a great compliment to the week they spent exploring the five senses at school. I can see using this book repeatedly for several years to come.
