Baby Touch: Food Book Reviews

This book looked very colourful and inviting.  Board books are always good for young children as easy to grip and less likely to get damaged.  Sophia got excited about the book and I think this was because of the unusual shape and bright colours. It has helped her learn some new food words and associate the word with the picture. She loved the fact this was a touchy feely book. The grabbable tabs are great as they are big they are easy to use and helps with turning the pages. She did enjoy the colourful mages as they are vibrant and not overly busy. This book it great for little babies up, as not only are the pictures clear and vibrate for little babies but young toddlers can start learning new words etc. This was great for sensory development because of the pictures, colours and touch elements it is a great sensory book. Sophia’s loves books and this kept her entertained for some time. She loves touching the pages and getting me to touch and feel them too. Illustrations very clear and bright. This was read every day for a week as she got it herself for us to read. My daughter liked being able to interact with us with the touching the different textures. I liked that it helps with learning and is fun at the same time.  I think the age suitability for this book is ideal. Very good value. Really good sturdy and quality. I would look to buy other books in this series as they are great for introducing new words in a fun way. I would buy this book and I would recommend. Fun interactive book for young babies to small toddlers. Lovely book which is easy to read and helps develop many skills in young children. Claire Ginn – Sophia 21 Months

I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the book and the look, it definitely caught my eye and my daughters. It looked very interactive with the squishy parts and sturdy. My daughter was interested from the moment she saw the book as the images were of familiar foods she eats and words that we have been practicing. She will now pick the book up daily and say or point to the different pictures. We also really enjoyed spotting the ladybird. I think this book does encourage my child to learn more about the variety of foods that I wouldn’t necessarily teach her, but also great that there are familiar foods. Although some pictures don’t necessarily look like the food to my child like carrot sticks. I was expecting more textures in this book, I found them to be quite minimal and repetitive. There are shiny glittery bits, some squishy bits, a couple of ridged bits and some puffy bits. My daughter lost interest in touching these as it became quite samey. I think selling this book as a touchy book is disappointing however the book is still really good for learning a variety of foods. I don’t feel the grabbable tags added anything extra to the book as my daughter didn’t use them to turn the pages, although it made the book look really interesting. She still would point and try and say the foods. My daughter did enjoy the colourful images featured in the book. There was a vast variety of colours used of all different shades, some bright, some neutral and all relevant to the food. I do agree this is an ideal first word book for babies as its interactive and eye catching. The pages have a nice amount of pictures which won’t overwhelm a child and each two spread page is for different meals of the day broken down. The variety of foods means a child should recognise most of them. I think this book is a good introduction to sensory development and motor skills, however as stated before the touch and feel textures are limited and repetitive which makes it a little harder for my child to engage. My daughter also just thought the grabbable tabs were just images and didn’t use them much when using the book. Although I do think the touch and feel aspect is lacking my daughter has loved this book it was a firm favourite when she first received it looking at it multiple times a day but weeks later it is still a daily favourite and she is able to recognise more and more of the pictures saying what they are. The interactive aspect of the book is limited and could have used more textures rather than repeating the 4 textures used throughout the book. I would say this part of the book didn’t keep my daughter engaged rather the pictures and bright colours and finding the ladybird. I thought most of the illustrations were good and colours reflected what the foods are. The carrots sticks could have been a bit more obvious but they are bright and child friendly. This book has been a hit with my daughter, initially she looked at the book multiple times a day, as the weeks have gone on its still a daily favourite and her vocabulary has developed in this time so she can recognise and say more of the food items. As my daughter has just turned two it is hard to know what she likes most about the book, it is clear a firm favourite is finding the lady bird and the illustrations of the food as they are very cute. The book was a really good size and very sturdy. I really liked the layout of the illustrations broken down into the different meal times. The illustrations are cute and suitable for the age. I think the book is suitable for the age group as it’s a good size, very sturdy, eye catching for babies and the drawings are simple with a range of different foods to develop first words and new words. The book is reasonably priced and I would pay this for the quality of it. The quality of this book is really good, it’s very sturdy and bigger than the normal sized book. It’s a book that could be wiped down if required and will last being handled time after time. I would buy other books in the series as I believe they are great for developing words, sensory and motor skills and are great quality books. I would definitely consider buying the Touch Food Book as the book helps development from a good age range of 0-2 but even older in my opinion. I would recommend this product to friends and family as I believe this book is good quality and helps development. A great quality book that has only lost a few marks as I think the touch and feel element is limited. The book still allows the development of other skills such as speech and motor skills. My overall experience of the product was very good, to see my daughter continue to enjoy this book weeks after receiving and see how her recognition and speech has developed from the variety of food illustrated is amazing. It’s a book we can relate to what we eat at our mealtimes whilst introducing new foods. Even though the textures are limited and my daughter will only occasionally touch them this doesn’t take away the positive parts of the book. The illustrations are simple, cute and brightly coloured which keeps my daughter interested, not to forget finding the ladybird on each page. We look forward to purchasing one of the other books.

Really attractive book and my baby said wow. He was attracted to it and wanted to look inside. This did help introduce him to a wider variety of foods.  He knew some already but he also learnt some new ones. He wasn’t as interested with the textures of the book. He found the grabbable tabs easy to use. The colourful images kept him interested and he wanted to turn the pages. It was good, perhaps could have been more to make its longevity better. It’s not a book he goes for, but he will look through it with me if i get it. Yes tis helped with sensory development. Not so sure with the motor skills. There were a few sensory sections but again my son wasn’t interested. That’s not to say other children wouldn’t be. Initially it kept his attention but it is not a book he repeatedly wants. I think we have other books that are more interactive with movement and hiding which my son continually will go back to. Maybe more of a story would attract children. The illustrations are really colourful. This would be read about twice a week. My son liked repeating the items. I liked that he was learning new words and talking about the colours. I think age suitability is good because they’re learning more and more words. This book is good value for money. I liked it. Personally I thought it was quite big and could have been smaller. If I was buying it as a present the size would put me off as kids have enough space consuming things as it is without a large book. I would buy other books in this series as they sound like they would cover more vocab and be attractive to look at.  I personally would not buy this because of the size.  I would not recommend for the same reason. Good book that created conversations about good foods. Helped talk about new foods and reiterate colours with my son. My daughter could also read it to her baby brother. Rachel Caesar – Chester 2 Years
