Learning about their own senses is something little children explore very early on. They get to know their world by taking in colors and shapes, scents, textures, tastes, and sounds. But what if we could taste a cloud, and see music? What if colors had a sound, and a rainbow had a smell? What would that be like?

In this beautiful board book a minimal text is paired with gorgeous artwork to present young children with ideas that will titillate their imaginations and invite them to think about their senses and the world around them in new ways. Do colors have sounds that seem to go with them? If we could taste a could what would it taste like?

As they turn the pages of this beautifully illustrated board book, children can follow a little girl and dog as they go on sensory adventures that take them to all kinds of magical places.
