" Good touch and feel book, very soft lion on the cover " said.

" Love all the books by this author! My 17month old Loves this!!!' " said.

" This book is a great idea, but the touchy-feely bits haven't really fared well over time. This may be a better book to own than to borrow from the library. " said.

" This is a great book, the bright colored pages are sturdy and the touch and feel section are large enough to take my 4 month olds hand and rub the different sections. " said.

" Just when I thought my 5 year old was beyond this kind of story, she surprises me. She really enjoyed the tactile experience of this story and discussing what all the animals are like. " said.

" I introduced the story time theme with a book similar to this which pictured several animals on each page spread. I gave clues such as "one of these animals catches fish" or "which of these animals eats leaves off the tops of trees?" I ignored the text completely and simply gave clues and enjoyed the children's enthusiastic responses. Several page spreads into the book there was a wolf, which suited my purpose perfectly. I set the book aside at this point and moved along to the next story. " said.

"Genre: Engineered books
This board book has vivid pictues with favorite animals with cut outs available for young children to "feel" the animals skin or fur. Each page identifies the animal and gives one fact about the animal's covering.
Themes: Animal identification, textures
Ways to use the book: This book is a wonderful touch and feel book for young children. It is best used one-on-one so that as the reader reads aloud, the child can touch the pages of the book. My daughter oooh-ed and ahhhh-ed at this book when she was young!

"Anonymous, Touch and Feel: Wild Animals (Dorling Kindersley, 1998)

Like most books of this type, it's cute, and the kid enjoys it a good deal (though for some reason he can never quite remember that it's the pads on the frog picture he's supposed to touch until I show him), but it has the problem of planned obsolescence; the touch-and-feel bits are wearing pretty durned thin after fifteen years in the field (of which we've had it a little less than one). Given that it's put out by DK, replacing it isn't much of a problem; they're generally good at keeping prices below where you'd expect them to be. And this is a style of book where it'd be almost, if not entirely, impossible to overcome the planned-obsolescence angle, so I'm not going to give it points off. You want it, but if you want to keep it around, you'll be replacing it fairly regularly. ***
