 Another intelligently crafted offering for the youngest from an exceptionally creative photographer. A multicultural array of four girls and a boy introduce the five senses. Each child explores the potential range of one sense in four appealing color photos explicated in the simplest of texts (``With my nose I smell popcorn,/a horse,/flowers,/and garbage.'' ``With my ears I hear my baby brother,/a fire engine,/my piano,/and whispered secrets''). Expertly composed photos show kids who are almost always happy (except for an appropriate grimace when, for example, medicine doesn't taste good), glowing with the pleasure of discovering their world. An excellent concept book. (Picture book. 2-6)
