Brilliant board books for toddlers based around the senses. Exploring the concept of smell, this title features familiar scenes and fun words to encourage lively chatter.
Children's Literature - Marilyn CourtotThe focus of this book is not smells such as the seven odors (camphoric, musky, roses, peppermint, ethereal, pungent, and putrid) that most humans recognize, but rather the types of things the toddlers would pick up and try to smell. Soap and towels may have their own fragrance and flowers have a special scent as do ripe strawberries and a tangerine. For many young toddlers their snuggle blanket or a stuffed animal provide a smell that offers a true sense of security. My favorite smell is that of the salty sea, as depicted by a charming young girl in her yellow bathing suit. For most young children, however, the special smell associated with a parent may be their true favorite. Kubler presents these sensations with a series of pencil and watercolor illustrations featuring a charming variety of children of various ethnicities and both sexes. This title is part of an engaging board book series about the senses. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
