Feely Bugs

Novelty Book
For ages 3 to 5

The world is full of colors and textures, and in this wonderful little book small children can explore just a few of them by dipping into David Carter's wonderful world of bugs. With feathers, fur, leather, lace, velvet and more, the author has created a delightful collection of creatures for little fingers to touch and stroke. Some of the textures even make interesting sounds when they are touched, and all the bugs in the pictures are colorful and amusing to look at.

Small children will not only enjoy touching and looking at the bugs, but they will also be introduced to some wonderful descriptive words such as "sticky," "puffy," "lacy," and "wrinkly."
