YOUR AMAZING SENSES: 36 Games, Puzzles and Tricks That Show How Your Senses Work

A entertaining introduction to the five senses, with intriguing hands-on activities (optical illusions, scratch-and-sniff patches, 3-D blue-red glasses, etc.). But scientific explanations are very brief, the drawings lack detail, and with four to eight activities squeezed on each page, following the text can be difficult. Also some activities are not really doable as presented: an individual proficient at Braille would have little luck reading the Braille alphabet of punched holes rather than raised dots, and the red-blue sign-language pictures included might well challenge a proficient singer. Still, both convey a sense of the skills. Puzzle and activity parts are firmly attached to the book with sturdy cord. This should prove a popular browsing book in school and public libraries.
