In Touching, early readers will discover how the brain senses touch, and how we use this sense to learn about our surroundings. 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 skin, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about touching online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Touching also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index. Touching is part of Jump!'s Senses in My World series.
