Vehicles (Touch Think Learn)

Vehicles (Touch Think Learn)
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade
Featuring spreads each with raised shaped objects that fit into scooped cutouts on their opposite page, these two new Touch Think Learn books offer the youngest learners an irresistible opportunity to explore their universe in a hands-on, multisensory way. Seeing the image, tracing its shape, saying its name: these modes of perception combine in a dynamic way to stimulate understanding of essential concepts. Discover--and experience a train by tracing the raised railcar on one side and feeling the excavated shape of the track on the other! Clusters of related words on each spread offer parents and children a springboard for further conversations to encourage the language skills so crucial to later successful learning. In a format unlike any other, these groundbreaking books translate abstract thought into tangible knowledge.

Starred Review

Toddler-PreS—In design and concept, these are sophisticated tactile primers. Thick pages present a bright, labeled illustration in relief on the left of each spread (donkey, fox, bus, airplane, etc.), facing a related recessed image and a discreetly placed list of related nouns and verbs (hoof, grazing, wheels, riding) to identify and discuss. Subtle and stylish.
