Child’s Play. (Look, Touch, Learn). Sept. 2022. 12p. Board $17.99. ISBN 9781786286277.
Toddler-PreS–Touted as having a particular palette and touchy-feely elements or moving parts appropriate for the very young, this book promises to promote curiosity, or at least answer it. It’s more likely that babies and toddlers will delight in the words coming out of adult readers’ mouths: starfish, knobbly, spiny, seaweed, rubbery, swaying. They’ll also love the stylized shapes from the sea, green and white spots on a hot pink starfish, or a black and white spiral of a seashell on an orange sand beach.
VERDICT This will nab the attention of the very young and will be returned to again and again.
