Overview

The simple storylines and vibrant illustrations teach children the fundamentals of the five senses.

For very young children, every moment of every day holds the possibility of a wonderful discovery. This delightful book introduces children to the five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. As they follow a little dog from his first taste of breakfast milk to the feel of a big warm hug to the sound of a soothing bedtime story, children will be encouraged to appreciate the diverse sensory experiences of their own world. Little Dog is a lovable and adventurous pup, while Mother Dog is a warm and reassuring presence. Read aloud, these sweet and simple stories also encourage children to join in and start reading along from an early age.

Author Biography: Mary Murphy's debut book, I Like It When, received critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic, and was praised by Publishers Weekly for achieving "an expressive simplicity."

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-KA puppy and his older canine companion experience the everyday world through the pup's five senses. While helping with the dishes, the little dog hears "the dishes clink," and later tastes salty snacks and feels the rain fall. None of the images is particularly vivid. Also, the pup moves between doglike actions (rolling in a mud puddle and chasing a cat) and childlike actions (drinking hot chocolate and sharing a book). Murphy's illustrations consist of intense watercolors with bold black outlines. The cartoon animals are simple and appealing but the text will be confusing and uninteresting to young children. Replace your worn copies of Margaret Miller's fine photographic work, My Five Senses (S & S, 1994).Ellen M. Riordan, Enoch Pratt Free Library, Baltimore, MD
