These best-selling books for babies and toddlers have a variety of textured patches on each page, to develop sensory awareness. The
textures might be fuzzy, smooth, bumpy, or rough...little ones will love to feely the different patches. In the catalog, you’ll find Touchy-
Feelys in a larger format, too, with multiple textures on each page. Be sure to check out all of the Touchy-Feely books on pages 39 and
40 of our catalog. We have over three dozen Touchy-Feely books in our collection!




Find the Duck $6.99 (Pages 12 & 41)
Find The Duck is a sturdy board book specially written to provide very young children with the challenge of something to look for,
amusing situations to talk about, and familiar objects to name. Children will love to find the little yellow duck in every picture and then
look for the other objects hidden throughout the story. We also have Find the Bird, Kitten, Puppy, Piglet and Teddy.




I Love You, Baby $8.99 (Page 39)
Usborne Board Books are not only adorable, but very high quality. The simple words, rounded corners, and sturdy, durable pages make
them perfect for baby’s first books. This title, I Love You, Baby, is part of our “Snuggletime” series. There are soft and fuzzy textures of
Baby’s blanket and favorite plush toys on each double page.




There's A Mouse About The House $10.99 (Pages 3, 9 & 49)
This interactive book is so much fun: first, take the little cardboard mouse out of the pocket on the front cover. (hold up book and
demonstrate as you speak) Then, as you read the story about the mouse's adventure, follow the dotted line and move the mouse
through the slot on each page. Kids and parents LOVE this book! And - it’s not just fun, it’s educational, too:
• holding the mouse is like holding a pencil. It teaches those fine motor skills to little fingers.
• following the dotted line encourages early writing skills.
• the mouse always moves from left to right, which is important to early reading skills. AND
• the child learns to turn one page at a time. If they turn a few pages at once, (like many 2 year olds do) the mouse won’t be there This
is a favorite book for so many reasons - children love to read the book and move the mouse again and again. Real Life Award winner.
Also available in the slot book series: A Squirrel’s Tale!

Learning Palette $14.99 for Base, $9.99 per Card Pack (Pages 13, 14 & 15)

First, remove the small colored disks. Then, position one of the cards, question side up, on the Learning Palette base. Next, the child
answers the questions by placing their corresponding colored disk in the slot that has the answer. After they've placed all the disks, the
child turns the card over to check their answers. If done correctly, the colors on the card will match those of the disks. This unique
product is easy and fun to use, allows children to work at their own pace, and helps build confidence. The card packs are sold
separately, and each contains 12 cards, with 12 challenges on each card. Concepts covered in reading range from letter recognition to
early vocabulary to reading comprehension and more. Math skills covered include counting, simple addition and subtraction and
progress to decimals, fractions, money and more. You can purchase the Learning Palette base and individual card packs, or purchase
