Synopses & Reviews
Not your average touch-and-feel!
Everyone knows what its like to pat a bunny thats soft and cuddly. But for those babies and toddlers who want to touch something different—say prickly and tickly animals of a more exotic nature—Betsy Snyders Have You Ever Tickled a Tiger? offers the perfect opportunity. This novelty book asks its readers if theyve ever kissed a walrus, poked a penguin, or hugged an octopus, among others! Rhyming couplets share more about the delightfully illustrated creatures boasting tickly whiskers, velvety tummies, bumpy tentacles, fluffy feathers, etc.—all for baby to touch and feel!
"The sort of infectious book that kids will be memorizing within a few readings and helping adults complete the rhymes."
"A sturdy interactive book about a flock of playful lambs . . . There's enough glitter, shiny surface and sweetly expressive farm animals to occupy a small child time and again."

A touch-and-feel, lift-the-flap, interactive novelty book for preschoolers. With rhyming textand#160;by Laura Numeroff (author of the If You Give A... books) and humorous illustrations by Lynn Munsinger (Tacky the Penguin, Wodney Wat) this fun and funny book teaches preschoolers about opposites and is full of textures and tabs for little hands to touch.

Jaunty rhymes make for excellent read-alouds on their own, but add flaps to flip and textures to touch and storytime success is inevitable. Lynn Munsingerand#8217;s colorful lambs in contrasting situations (indoors/outdoors, for instance) help reinforce the concept of opposites. A great choice for fans of Matthew Van Fleetand#8217;s Tails!
