Touch It!

Want to really engage your tyke with a book? Try a touch & feel book. Children naturally learn through their senses, and one of the most important senses for infants and toddlers is the sense of touch. No need to buy these because the Pima County Public Library has a bucket load! Try some of my favorites:              

These books are great because they stimulate baby's focus and attention while giving their ever-moving mitts something else to do besides grabbing at or pounding on the book you're holding.  An added bonus is that they're a natural conversation starter.  Each patch of fur or fabric prompts you to say something about it.  "What does it feel like?", "What else feels like that?", etc.  

To find all of the touch and feel books in our collection, simply type in "touch and feel" in the open box on the library's catalog page. The board books that are appropriate for your child should be obvious. If they're not available at your neighborhood branch, just reserve them and have them sent to the branch of your choice. If you have any questions, ask a librarian!    Have fun sharing these books with your child.
