PreS-Gr 2—Once again, Brocket has created a rich, sensory treat that young children will thoroughly enjoy. Using her signature photography brimming with color and detail, she invites her audience to use all five senses to soak up the world around them. Thanks to spectacular tight shots, youngsters can almost hear the splashing of a waterfall, smell freshly baked bread, taste the crunchy edges of a fried egg, and feel the velvety covering of a budding flower. The text is minimal but packs a descriptive punch, and it's presented in a fun font against neutral, textured rectangles. The concluding spread asks readers to name all five senses again and think about which ones they're using in that moment. This selection would be a wonderful tool for heightening a child's awareness of all the sensory experiences afforded by an outing to the park or any other venue or for a fun sensory-based scavenger hunt at home on a dreary day. In any case, it's a book that will be pored over again and again, thanks to photography that absolutely pops.—Alyson Low, Fayetteville Public Library, AR
From the cover’s richly colored photographs and the alliterative sound of the title, Brocket invites children to explore the world with their five senses. One at a time, each sense is examined, partnering those eye-popping pictures with simple declaratory text. First, our eyes: they see the world around us, including patterns, colors, and shapes. Second, our ears hear loud sounds and quiet sounds. Third, our hands, feet, and skin feel rough, smooth, wet, cold, grainy, and warm textures. Fourth, our noses smell fragrant, pungent, ripe, and rotten scents. And finally, our tongues taste sweet, sour, and salty flavors, and can distinguish between them. After these great examples of visual learning, readers are given the opportunity to choose which senses they use in different settings. For example: Can you say which senses we use when we . . . take a walk outside? This is just one entry in the Jane Brocket’s Clever Concepts series, all of which share the same snazzy appeal. Preschool-Grade 2. --J. B. Petty

How about the sense of touch? Everything feels a bit different. Some things are sharp like the spikes on a cactus, but then there are soft things like a "fluffy flower bud." You can even learn about how things feel with your feet. Have you ever stepped in soft squishy sand at the beach? Wow, smell that freshly baked bread and flowers in a garden. There are lots of things that smell great, but then again "some are stinky like garbage or a rotten apple." Yuk! We can also learn about the world around us by tasting things. Candy can be sweet, but lemons ... well they can be sour. In this book you'll be able to learn about your senses "to explore the world" around you!
This is a fun, interesting book that will help young children to learn about and use their senses. Each page is alive with an assortment of pictures that highlight a particular sense. On the introductory page, we learn about each of the five senses and on subsequent pages we learn what each sense does and are able to visit with photographic examples. For example, when we learn that "We use our ears to hear," we see a set of bells, a waterfall, and a lineup of taxi cabs ("Traffic honking). An emergent reader can tackle the text with assistance, but this book would also be a perfect introduction to the senses for preschoolers. It would be an excellent read and discuss book for circle or storytime.
