TouchWords is a brand new extension to the beloved, groundbreaking TouchThinkLearn series, now with raised letters that fit into die-cut shapes! This is a full handson, sensory experience, associating the tactile shapes of letters with the objects. Rilla Alexander executes a fresh design incorporating the classic elements of the TouchThinkLearn first words format, with core vocabulary and stretch words on each page helping children expand their vision of words and how they work together.
Rilla Alexander has been making books since she was two. She would tell the story to her mother who’d type it onto her pictures and bind them into books complete with a biography.
Her alter-ego Sozi stars in her books “Her Idea” and “The Best Book in the World” published by Flying Eye Books. Most recently she has illustrated Jane Yolen’s “A Bear Sat on my Porch Today” (Chronicle Books, 2018) and Lemony Snicket’s “Swarm of Bees” (Little Brown, 2019).
Originally from Australia, Rilla has lived in London, Berlin and Portland (Oregon) and now calls Los Angeles home.
