Featuring scooped-out die-cuts matched to raised, shaped elements, these two new TouchThinkLearn books offer youngest learners an irresistible opportunity to explore their universe in a hands-on, multi-sensory way. Seeing the image, tracing its shape, saying its name: These modes of perception combine in a dynamic way to stimulate understanding of essential concepts. Experience a train by tracing the raised railcar on one side and feeling the excavated shape of the track on the other! Clusters of related words on each spread offer parents and child a springboard for further conversation to encourage the language skills so crucial to later successful learning. In a format unlike any other, these groundbreaking books translate abstract thought into tangible knowledge.
