Reviews - What do customers think about Touch and Feel: Shapes?

Touchy Feely Shapes  Dec 15, 2007
A fun way to teach shapes to your little one. I thought the images in this book were not as good as they could have been, but all in all another good book by DK.
 
Touch & Feel: Shapes  Sep 22, 2007
Toddlers really seem to be drawn to the Touch and Feel books. It's a unique way for them to learn and they enjoy it!
 
Touch and Feel: Shapes  Jun 24, 2003
This is our second touch & feel book and my son really enjoys the new textures introduced in this book. Not neccesarily the best touch & feel book out there, but still decent.
 
Not their best...  Nov 29, 2001
This Dk touch and feel book is not their best. It feels like they just slapped a few ideas together and didn't really try to come up with real-life, meaningful texture examples. I agree with the other reviewer who said it was repetitive; it is! Enough with the buttons already! Plus, the textures seem forced, like the best idea they had for "fluffy" is a pencil case? and "shiny" is a star that feels bumpy? The examples don't seem relevant to a baby's world.

Too Repetitive  Sep 3, 2001
My son is only 5 months old, and he seems like picking up all the book-like objects, so I don't know if he is especially interested in this book or not.

As a parent's opinion, I like the different texture it offers to my kid to touch in the book, that's why I have bought quite some "touch and feel" style books for my baby. But I find this less perfect.

I find this book not too creative and imaginative. They always use "buttons" as one of the examples of many shapes. For example, when they introduce circle, there are buttons; when they introduce square, there are buttons; and even heart shape, there are buttons. They could have chosen a greater variety of objects.

"Cushion" is another object that appears a lot. In both the square and in the star shape sections, there are cushions. I think they could have at least use star fish instead of cushion in the star shape section. That will help the kids to learn more about different things besides different shapes.
