Sight, smell, taste, hearing, and touch-our five senses teach us about our world. Beloved author-illustrator Aliki's simple, engaging text and colorful artwork show young readers how they use their senses to smell a rose or play with a puppy. Now rebranded with a new cover look, this bestselling picture book invites young readers to use each of their five senses to explore the world around them. Both text and artwork were expert-reviewed for accuracy. As Children's Books and Their Creators put it: Aliki treats complex topics clearly and succinctly while providing lively pictures, with informative details and humorous elements often appearing in 'balloons.' Aliki's books continue to speak to today's young readers. This is a Level 1 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores introductory concepts perfect for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Let's-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.
