I bought this after buying a cheaper, disappointing touch-and-feel ocean book with textured areas too small to even feel. This one is perfect! Every page has a large textured area to feel and some also have flaps to lift. Even the cover is textured. I’d recommend this to anyone with young kids!
This book is adorable! I was actually surprised how informative it is. My little guy is only 7 months right now, but I can't wait until he can start to understand what's going on in these pages. I primarily bought this for the touch and feel aspect, but am so happy with how this book will age with him. He likes touching the smooth whale and the slipper dolphin. The sandpaper shark is also fun. So far, all of the pages have stood up to him dropping it and drooling on it.
Beyond the entertainment elements of SAFARI there are plenty of educational opportunities for you to share. With very young children you can use this book to name animals, colors, patterns, and objects. Children can touch the gray elephant's hide, for example, and they can see a baby elephant following it's mother across the plain. The textures also provide opportunities to discuss adjectives such as smooth and fluffy.
With older children you can share the information on the animals design and habitat. The physical details are simple. The lions tail is described as "a long tail with a tuft of fur at the end". A gazelle though is shown wondering where his herd went, and what is that sound is. When you drop the flap you can see two lionesses stalking him in the grass.
