Touch and Feel Baby Animals: 10/20/06
It's time to review one of Harriet's books! She was given this book back in July when the Dublin / Pleasanton BookCrossers threw me a baby shower. I've shown her the pictures but so far she isn't up to trying to pet any of the pictures. I know that she will want to when she gets older. In the meantime, the photographs of the baby animals are very cute.
Sean had another book in the series as a baby: Touch and Feel on the Farm. Both books have the same two problems: the textures don't make much of a match to what the animal depicted actually feels like and there isn't enough variety to the textures in the book. Baby Animals is worse on the variety issue. The same pseudo hair texture is used for more than half the animals pictured. I suppose the idea is to make the touching sensation as pleasurable as possible for babies reading the book but it certainly won't make it very tactily interesting.
