If I were a Puppy is a short, bright, tactile book that is focused on everyone’s best friend! With lots of textures for young children to touch and feel, it is a book that is sure to become a favorite.
Recommended Age: 0-3
Who will love this book? Young children who love to learn about animals or just enjoy books with different textures are sure to love this book. Children will love to feel the “velvety ears” or “squishy nose”, as well the tail that is attached to the back cover of the book.
Learning Opportunity: This book helps children learn descriptive words such as shiny, squishy, and velvety, by having them touch objects that match with these words.
For younger children this book is a wonderful tactile book, but for older children it can turn into a useful vocabulary book. Have children point to their nose after pointing to the puppy’s nose or point to their ears after pointing to the puppy’s ears.
