‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Five Senses (The)
by Herve Tullet
Age Range: Under_5
This is a book that will tickle all the senses. Divided into six chapters, it explores through pictures the five senses – See, Hear, Smell, Touch, Taste...... In the first chapter, ‘See’ it explores colours, faces, shapes, a mirror image and eye exercises. ‘Hear’ imagines the sounds of the birds singing, when it’s break time in school (you can rustle the cellofane page) or hear bees buzzing, sneezing, laughter or a big traffic jam. The colours used are bold and vibrant to explain sound – the brighter they are the louder the sound.
‘Smell’ explores bad smells and good smells while ‘Touch’ uses colour to explain hot (red), cold (blue and white) or the alphabet at your fingertips with a page of braille, as well as loving and touching in simple painted shapes. ‘Taste’ gives examples of different foods and the strawberry page with a bite taken out. Finally, there is the ‘6th Sense’ – ‘Which way is the 6th Sense?’
Hervé Tullet’s clear concepts accompanied by brash, colourful images make this an ideal book to learn about the different senses through illustration.
