    1. Originally published on my blog,Nine Pages .This is a touch-and-feel animal and animal sounds primer. The illustrations combine blocks of bright color, colored fingerprints, and photographs: sheep made of cauliflowers heads and hedgehogs made of bright dalias. These were creative illustrations, and I appreciated that. There weren’t really that many opportunities for touch-and-feel elements (there weren’t many pages) and what were there were pretty humdrum.

    2. This book is very strange. There are only four animals included (chick, lamb, hedgehog, and rabbit, which seem an odd combination). The illustrations include some touch-and-feel, but them other parts of the illustrations are made out of produce and fingerprints. I understand trying to do something in a unique style, but the designers should have chosen one concept rather than using so many elements in an non-cohesive way.

    3. Animal sounds (including some not typical animals). Really enjoyed the use of fingerprints in story (could be paired with handprint art activity). Great touch and feel board book format.

    4. What a strange combination in the art, here! Fingerprints, different textures, and fruits/vegetables in a mixed up animal concoction.
