Garden Friends : A touch and feel book by Natalie Marshall
Published by The Five Mile Press
This board book is a great book for babies. Sturdy, colourful, simple text and tactile. There is a different texture on each page for a young child to feel and this helps create a connection to the book.
Four animals are introduced and their sound or movement is described. The sentences are very simple and this can assist the reader in two different ways. Firstly this book could be a lovely simple read to share with a baby or young child. Secondly the reader could read each sentence on the page and then talk to the baby about the colours and illustrations. This can create a lovely conversation which can place as the child touches the textures on each page.
This book is a lovely introduction to the world of books and reading for babies.
