Combining scooped-out die-cuts with raised, shaped elements, two new TouchThinkLearn books offer youngest learners an irresistible opportunity to explore their universe in a hands-on, multisensory way. See the image, trace its shape, say its name: these modes of perception combine in a dynamic way to stimulate understanding of essential concepts. Contemplate a circle by touching the raised surface of an owl hooting at night on one side, and the form of a moon rising on the other. Featuring a format unlike any other, these groundbreaking books translate abstract thought into tangible knowledge.
There are a lot of board books about shapes out there, and it’s a pretty basic concept, so I’m not sure how much room for improvement there is on the standard model. That being said, this is a really good board book about shapes. I like the minimalist look and bright colors, and my one-year-old likes touching the features on each page. It’s a good one!
