In Tasting, early readers will learn about our sense of taste, and the different types of tastes we discover in our food. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text will engage emergent readers as they explore one of the five senses. A labeled diagram helps readers identify the parts of the tongue, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about tasting online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Tasting also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index. Tasting is part of Jump!'s Senses in My World series.
