What we’ve read so far, week 34

A stack of touch and feel books

We’ve reached the stage where she understands touch & feel books! She still tries to chew the corners sometimes, but is also interested in turning pages and feeling the panda’s soft tummy, the puppy’s shaggy ears, etc. I’m not sure, but I think she might be left-handed, so I make sure to hold the book centered in front of her or a little over to her left so she can reach with that hand.

  • That’s Not My… series by Fiona Watt, illustrated by Rachel Wells: there are a ridiculous number of these and if you’ve read one you’ve read them all, but they’re perfect for this stage.
  • Pat the Zoo is a large sturdy book with lots of different textures – soft fur, wrinkly skin, bright feathers, even a bumpy turtle shell! She likes this one a lot.
  • Noisy Farm has sound as well as texture. She can’t yet press hard enough to trigger the sound effects, but she enjoys them.
  • Rhymoceros has a few pages with textures: bumpy, furry, mossy and glossy.

What touch & feel books do you(r kids) like?
