With its signature format of spreads with raised shaped objects that fit into scooped cutouts on their opposite page, this new TouchThinkLearn book offers youngest learners an opportunity to explore in a hands-on, multi-sensory way. Seeing the image, tracing its shape, saying its name: These modes of perception combine to stimulate comprehension of essential concepts. Discover a monkey and its jungle home by tracing the raised outline on one side, and the concave shape on the other! Related words on each spread offer parents and children a springboard for further conversation to encourage the language skills crucial to later successful learning. In a format unlike any other, these groundbreaking books translate abstract thought into tangible knowledge.
