We found this a very difficult read (with toddlers) as it was dumbed down so much. No story. Random. No connections. Nothing to engage or spark an interest. You wait for something to happen that never does, and you're left wondering what was the point? My children didn't get the exposure to the senses, because it was poorly written & presented.

Isadora, presents a great way to begin the discussion of the five senses for preschoolers. Its not a story as such, but uses examples of the 5 senses that young children can relate to and understand. This is a book begging for discussion among the reader and the listeners.

A rare picture book which reviews all five senses and how they're used (or not!). Very different from the illustrator's African-based artwork, there are tiny children shown from many backgrounds.

A great book to help toddlers explore and understand all the senses.

Pickles don't make noise, you say? Sure they do - when you crunch into them! This large picture book is divided into five sections for the five senses, and each section is filled with spot illustrations of adorable tots simply observing and interacting with the world around them: "I smell the pizza," “I see the moon.” The structure stays fresh, thanks to clever negatives – “I don’t see the flower grow” or “I don’t touch the cactus” – and kid-relatable commentary, like “I touch the egg. Oops!” during a baking scene. This is perfect inspiration for talking together with children, and a great reminder to delight in the small things.
