Overview


Do you remember your first realization of any of your five senses? Prolific children's author J. M. Parram³n successfully tackles these tough concepts in words that 3-5 year olds can comprehend. These five colorful books awaken young minds to the wonders of the senses: the taste of oranges, the aroma of fresh-baked bread, and other sensations that give us delight in being alive. Educational, yet fun to read, this clever series is clearly written and cheerfully illustrated in flowing colors throughout. Each book includes a special "scientific" section to help parents answer their children's questions about the senses.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS - K A book about vision that will not awaken young minds to the wonders of seeing. The illustrations show frightened looking children staring in different directions. It appears that they are unable to focus their eyes on the object mentioned in the text. The illustrations are accompanied by dull, repetitious sentences: ``See the. . .'' and ``Look at the. . . .'' Also, it's disturbing to find young children directed to ``See the sun.'' The book does offer an adult appendix with a diagram of the eye and a technical explanation of how the eye works. However, the authors fail to tell how to relate this information to children. A. Elizabeth McAuliffe, Williston Park Public Library, N.Y.
