Part of a new line of books aimed at families with blind or sight-impaired members, this smartly conceived board book is tactile in more ways than one. As readers count to 10, the numbers and accompanying rhymes appear in both English and raised Braille dots, while the objects described feature touch-and-feel elements that give a physical sense of the shape and characteristics of each, from the squishy rubber of %E2%80%9CThree balls to play with in the park%E2%80%9D to the scratchy, glittery treatment applied to %E2%80%9CFour trees with very rough bark.%E2%80%9D Polished design and execution make this a valuable resource.
