Wings: A Book to Touch and Feel

Salina Yoon, Author, Salina Yoon, Illustrator S&S/Little Simon $8.99 (12p) ISBN 978-1-4169-8958-5

A ladybug’s wings open and close via a button on the cover of this simple, tactile board book, which uses a call-and-response pattern (“What kind of wings do ducklings have? Fuzzy orange wings!”). The duckling has a soft fabric wing, while hummingbirds have pillowy, “glistening green wings!” and a butterfly has “shimmery pink wings!” that feel sandy. The animals all return on the final page, for an enthusiastic finale: “Look at all of our beautiful wings!” Ages 3–5. (Jan.)
