Little Lumpty by Miko Imai

Painted tactile picture of Little Lumpty from the book of the same name

We have to include a book about an egg! Little Lumpty lives in Dumpty and dreams of following in the footsteps of the famous Humpty and climbing the high wall. One day he gets a ladder and climbs but things don’t go exactly as he hoped…

This lovely picture book for children aged 5 -7 years features hand-painted ‘feely’ images, braille in UEB grade 1 or 2, and an audio guide to every picture in the book.

 

Mole’s Sunrise by Jeanne Willis and Sarah Fox-Davies

Mole tactile picture

The perfect book to enjoy as spring flowers bloom. Mole’s friend, Vole, takes him on a walk through the bluebell woods. Mole had thought he’d never know the beauty of the sunrise but Vole, and his other friends, bring it alive by describing it to him. A beautifully written and illustrated book, your little one will love exploring the hand-painted tactile pictures of Mole and his cosy home.

 

Sitting Ducks by Michael Bedard

Tactile picture of ducks doing exercises

A humorous tale for older children (7-11 years) about life in the Colossal Duck factory. Here a steady supply of ducks is hatched, destined for the plates of hungry alligators. One day an alligator working in the factory befriends a duck and takes him home. How can such a friendship survive in an alligator-eat-duck world!

Other Easter-themed Touch to See books available include The Little Red Hen, Handa’s Hen, Five Little Ducks and In the Rain with Baby Duck. Browse our online library and place your order today.
