Format: Board book
The touch and feel books by DK are terrific. The photographs are large and wonderful and the items to feel are an excellent tool for your youngster. These books are fine for very young babies as well as toddlers. Your child will learn the name of each animal as well as the sound the animal makes. The first coherent sound my son made was "Moo". These books are perfectly sized for you and your baby to read. Moreover, your child can even read to him/herself as the board book pages are thick enough for a young child to turn. I recommend all of the DK books. As your child grows, the series grows also. These books also make a wonderful birthday or holiday gift. Highly recommended.

This board book has a nice, thick cover. The chick on the cover has a fuzzy body insert.

Pg 1: Chicks, with fake medium length yellow fur.
Pg 2: Horse, with short brown fur.
Pg 3: Sheepdog, with long white fur.
Pg 4: Lamb, with woolly fur.
Pg 5: Pig, with sandpaper.

Pretty standard touch items, but not much variation. I liked the Wild Animals board book better.

We have 4 books in this great series, and I am really impressed with their quality. They don't have tiny patches of semi-touchable fabric, they have BIG areas of very soft (or rough, or leathery, or whatever) feelable material. The chick in this one is all covered with a really chick-like soft yellow fuzz, the sheep is covered with real feeling woolly material, and so on. Fun for babies and ages on up to adult!

Format: Board book
Big, bright interesting photos of chicks & chickens, colts & horses, puppies & dogs, etc. with nicely attached textures representative of the animal's coat for baby to feel. Our daughter looks at the pictures longer than most books, opens her hand that has been placed on the wool, etc., to get a better touch with her fingertips. Very effective and baby friendly fun tool for 3-way visual, tactile, verbal association-building.

All of the touch and feel books make great books for babies, even as young as 3 or 4 months. The pictures are attractive to infants. My son loves the different textures.

I have a 17 month old and a 3 year old and they both like this book. I use it with my 3 year old to help with his sensory issues, and I use it with my 17 month old to help expand her vocabulary. Recommend!

Format: Board book
My 6 year old son is developmentally disabled. He loves to look at bright pictures and feel different textures. This book is great for both. Although he is six we usually resort to tactile toys intended for infants. How refreshing to find a book that suits his needs and doesn't look babyish! The other books in this series are great as well. Zoo animals, Dogs, and Cats.

My daughter has loved this book since she received it for her one-year birthday. We can't read it to her enough. She loves to pet the animals over and over again! I'm glad to learn there are more in this series!
