From the Back Cover
Touching and doing stimulate learning. Children want to explore. They are curious. They need to touch, to find out, and to know. We need to surround them with things to explore, wonder about, do and discover.
Simple materials-cups, sponges, stickers, rubber bands, corks, erasers, magnets, coins, marbles, rocks, buttons, rice, beans, and sandpaper-can be made into activities that children want to touch,) manipulate, and use.
Activities in each chapter use the same basic materials and techniques. The activities in Do Touch! can be prepared quickly and easily. The chapters include: sticks, sponges, stickers, cups, pockets, gadgets, transparencies, and rings. Simple, yes! Intriguing, yes! Boring, never!
