Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The pictures are excellent, the tactile lessons will be easily absorbed.” —Children's Literature
Children's Literature
It is always fun to have some tactile reinforcement for learning. In this "baby touch and feel" book, little ones will combine that experience with information about wild animals. The panda bear on the cover has a fuzzy white patch to touch. The African elephant has a soft leathery seat and the zebra has soft stripes to touch. The leopard has many spots help to hide it in its habitat and the simulated fur is there for petting, although one would not want to do that to a real leopard. The iguana has bright scales that feel more like the elephants leathery skin while the toucan's feathers are more like fur. The koala's nose is just black and soft. The pictures are excellent, the tactile lessons will be easily absorbed and kids will not be quite as fussy about the exact way something feels as this reviewer who felt that aspect of the book was not entirely successful. 2005, Priddy Books/St. Martin's Press, Ages 1 to 4.
—Marilyn Courtot

Meet the Author

Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification—in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator. His first job in children's books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became Creative Director of DK's Children's Division and was Managing Director of the children's mass market publisher Funfax when it was acquired by DK.

In 2000, he created Priddy Books with John Sargent at St Martin's Press to create innovative and imaginative titles for children, from first books for babies through early reference titles for older children. Since then, over 30 million copies of Roger's 200 plus books have sold worldwide, with five of his books—My Big Animal, My Big Truck, Happy Baby Words, Happy Baby Colors and Puppy and Friends—each selling over one million copies. He is also the author of Big Board First 100 Words; Big Board Books Colors, ABC, Numbers; and Bright Baby Noisy Monsters. His creativity has been recognized with numerous industry awards. Priddy lives in London with his wife Zena and their four children.
