Description



Book Synopsis



Touch and Explore: The Ocean is a multisensory journey for children who want to do more than just listen!

Scales, tails, flippers, and fins--let's dive into the ocean: The Touch and Explore(TM) series, already bestsellers in their original French editions, are well-crafted interactive titles that encourage hands-on engagement, learning and knowledge retention. As you move through each page, young readers can touch shiny scales and bumpy barnacles, turn a flap to find a clownfish hiding among an anemone, touch a shark's sandpapery skin, and discover who can squirt ink and change color! It's a trip to an underwater world that's just a touch away.

- A splashy treat for visual learners and pre-readers, kids can discover the facts, feel, and functions of over two dozen marine animals
- Bright illustrations encourage kids to immerse themselves in a fascinating beyond-the-bathtub habitat
- Sturdy board book design is just the right size for small hands

Fans of other books in the Touch and Explore series will also enjoy the interactive learning and excitement found in Touch and Explore: The Ocean.

- Great family read-aloud book
- Books for 3-5 years old
- Books for preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary school children



Review Quotes




"A French import introduces toddlers to the seven seas. The deep blue sea and the creatures that call it home are the focus of this large touch-and-feel book. Little ones will learn about sharks, octopuses, manta rays, and all sorts of other ocean dwellers. The illustrations are serviceable though bland; Choux opts for representational accuracy rather than creative license in his depictions. This is a book that'll be particularly loved by aspiring marine biologists, filled with facts and detail. The textures (a dolphin's "soft, flexible skin"; a sea turtle's "hard shell") will attract younger readers, but those just about ready for their first long picture books will get maximum value out of this read due to the book's level of detail. Little readers uninterested in the difference between clownfish and lionfish might fare better with companion title Farm, by Xavier Deneux. That title covers the barnyard in a similar fashion but has simpler text to accompany the engaging textures. A decent introduction to the undersea world. (Board book. 2-4)" - Kirkus Reviews
