With shimmery, shiny mermaids, a pearly underwater palace, friendly sea creatures, intricate mermaid accessories, and a fun rhyme, it's a delightful book to read aloud, and makes a great gift or stocking filler. Just right for sharing with babies and toddlers and encouraging their imaginative play, every page has a colourful character or mermaid accessory embellished with touch and feel patches or sparkly areas to expand children's senses. And the simple design - with one main picture per page - is easy for little ones to follow. From a twinkling mermaid's tail and a bumpy seahorse to a sea king's soft beard, a smooth, shiny dolphin, and a sparkly seashell mirror, Baby Touch and Feel Mermaid features all sorts of mer-mazing things! Read-aloud rhymes inspire pretend play and creativity, and names all the images - encouraging identification skills, and building language and picture-and-word association - helpful for early reading. This small baby board book is a good size for little hands to hold. Babies and toddlers will love turning the pages themselves, which develops their fine motor skills.
