* "Isadora's book about the five senses is aimed perfectly at another sense-kids' sense of humor."-The Horn Book, starred reviewCaldecott Honor winner Rachel Isadora's sweet and simple introduction to the five senses is perfect for the youngest children, who will recognize themselves in charming vignettes portraying a wide range of childhood activities. Hearing, smelling, seeing, touching, tasting-our five senses allow us to experience the world in so many ways! With our ears we hear the birds sing; with our nose we smell the stinky cheese; with our eyes we see the moon and stars (and sometimes glasses help us see even better!); with our skin we feel the rain (and learn not to touch the hot stove!); and with our tongue we can taste our favorite foods. Isadora's lively art reveals the power and delight of each sense.From the Hardcover edition.

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.
