Very Good. Aimed at very young children, this book uses fabrics to produce different sensations of touch. The objects depicted in the book are creepy things. There is a scary surprise on the last spread of the book. Glued binding. Paper over boards. Picture book. 12 p. Contains: Illustrations. Scary Touch and Feelies. Intended for a juvenile audience.
ISBN 0679885862 ? There?s not much to this book, but what?s here is perfect for Halloween for the really little ones. Just 12 pages, and the pages are not quite as thick and sturdy as most board books. Creepy Things is cool, in that weird, Halloween-ish way.
From a shiny beetle in a tree to a big hairy spider in the drainpipe, children meet some bugs that they can touch without fear. Each page has a small, touchable part of the bug it features, even a wriggly worm!
The book is average when compared to other touch and feel books and the slightly flimsier pages don?t impress me at all, but the Halloween possibilities redeem it somewhat. There aren?t many Halloween books for this age group, so any are to be appreciated! If you buy your copy used, check for all moving parts ? my "slimy snail", in several copies, is always missing the touchable part.
