Touch and Explore Books from Scholastic Early Learners: Farm Tails and D is For Duck
Part of Touch and Explore, a brand new line from Scholastic Early Learners that starts babies on their learning journey, Farm Tails and D is for Duck are fun, interactive introductions to barnyard friends! In Farm Tails, babies will learn about cows, horses and more through singsong text, bright illustrations, and five touchable tails.
D is for Duck is a large format board book with the lift-the-flaps on every page that introduce little ones to first words! Along with an entire page dedicated to farm animals, little ones will learn about things that go, colors, and more.
From Joyce Wan, the creator of the beloved board book You Are My Cupcake, comes a farm story perfect for nighttime. Babies and toddlers will love lifting the flaps to tuck chick, sheep, and cow into their cozy beds!
With a baa-baa here and a kiss-kiss there—bestselling board book creator Sandra Magsamen puts a sweet twist on the classic barnyard song in I Love Old MacDonald’s Farm. Little ones will especially love this book’s tall format, which will make it stand out on any bookshelf.
Noisy Farm: My First Sound Book by Marion Billet and Look Who’s Mooing from Scholastic Early Learners
What’s more fun than saying “moo?” A book that says it right back! Noisy Farm is part of the My First Sound Book series by Marion Billet, which also includes I love Music, I Love Classical Music and I Love the Nutcracker. When little ones press the button on each spread, they hear a different animal sound!
A larger format book, Look Who’s Mooing features ten different buttons on a side panel, each featuring a favorite farmyard animal. When little ones find the animal in the book, they can press the corresponding button and bring the scene to life! There are also lift-the-flaps throughout, allowing for extra learning and interactivity.
We Love the Farm is a fun, interactive option for introducing little ones to all the farm animal favorites—a small book for little hands is nestled inside a larger board book that grown-ups can hold. Babies and toddlers will also love the family theme as they match the mommy animals in the small book to the baby animals in the big book!
