Touch And Feel Story Books from the Little Tiger Press

We've been reviewing books for the Little Tiger Press for quite a while now, and this month we've been sent two gorgeous 'Touch And Feel' books by M. Christina Butler and Tina Macnaughton. At first I thought they might be a little young for my 4 and recently 6 year old boys, but it's not so at all.

One Special Sleepover and One Special Christmas touch and feel story books for children review

All of the red print in these two Touch And Feel books has been printed over with flocked fibres, so it's soft and warm to the touch. It's really beautifully done with incredibly crisp edges and fine detail.

My children love running their fingers across the flock, and it can be excellent for helping with fine motor skills, as they practise following the edges of shapes and patterns, or thin lines flowing around the page.

One Special Sleepover by Little Tiger Press children's book review

One Special Sleepover is a nice little tale about a group of animal friends who come together and make a fabulous blanket to keep everyone warm and snug when the blanket that they had is lost. They all put their fabrics and their memories into the blanket, and make something really special.

The illustrations are beautiful and detailed, and the characters likeable. The story has a nice gentle flow, and it's perfect for bedtime reading.

One Special Christmas children's story book with touch and feel flocked print review

 One Special Christmas has a storyline that's fairly familiar and formulaic to an adult, but incredibly exciting to children, and never seems to fail. Santa's ill, and he needs help delivering the presents.

Although the overall story is fairly familiar, it has it's own special charm, and the main feature is what happens to the poor little hedgehog's hat while he's helping Santa deliver the presents.

Again beautifully illustrated and with a gentle flowing storyline, this is a tale about friends helping each other and it delighted both of my little boys. The ending made them both beam.
