Baby Touch and Feel: I Love You - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from DK.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
For Valentine's Day, or any day, let baby discover different colors and shapes with touch and feel textures that they can stroke and tickle with DK’s Baby Touch and Feel: I Love You (Published December 2016; $5.99) Little ones will love touching soft teddy bears, smooth roses, sparkly ribbons, and more all while fine tuning their motor skills. 

With simple images that are clearly labeled, and an amazing range of novelty textures, Baby Touch and Feel books capture the attention of the very youngest children and create an experience they'll want to repeat again and again.


My Review:

I'm all about promoting reading at an early age.  Although they may not be able to read the words themselves, quality time spent with little ones reading to them is an important foundation to early learning.  

Baby Touch and Feel: I Love You is a small padded board book for the littlest ones in your life.  Within the pages are pictures of realistic animals and objects.  Children will see pictures of teddy bears, kittens, puppies, and bunnies, among other things.  The sentences are short, with the words written in bold black font.  Most pages have a "touch and feel" with different textures.  For instance, babies can feel the softness of a puppy's fur.  Other pages have bright foil colors.  The last page gives a special touch with a mirrored image that baby can look in to see their self.

Along with the sensory aspect of the book, parents can use it to talk to their little ones about what the objects are in each page or count out how many items are within a certain group.  The book is little enough to fit in baby's hands.  The illustrations are cute, and it's a nice beginner book to start out with very young children.


Win It!

Two people will each win a Baby Touch and Feel: I Love You children's book.

My children were always excited about plush toys. They especially liked dog or cat toys and they of course love to pet real animals.

I like a padded board book. I think my granddaughter is just a little too old for this one, but maybe not. She's borderline (and how did that happen??? She's the baby!!). :) I think these are great though, and it's an awesome giveaway.

Any time there's a dog or cat around, my great nephew thinks he can pet them. We are trying to help him know that he can't just run up on any animal. He hasn't gotten hurt yet, and I hope he won't. It's just hard for him to not get too excited. :)
