It’s been amazing to see how my children have grown to love Roald Dahl’s books. My daughter especially loves listening to the audio CD collection we have, with Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory being firm favourites so far. We’ve got a few of the Roald Dahl board books for toddlers, which are a great way to introduce your children to the magic of Roald Dahl. When I saw this new Revolting Things to Touch and Feel I knew we were going to have some fun reading it together!
Your toddler will be able to explore revolting things to touch and feel in this board book. From squishy rotten eggs to lumpy, bumpy crocodiles and even a bushy, bristly beard, full of yucky food! We had some squeals of laughter as they touched the scratchy giant’s foot and slippery slithering snail, and the laughter only got louder as the last page features a mirror which shows the reader the most revolting and disgusting thing of all…you!
I like that this book gives young readers the chance to explore different textures, ranging from soft to bumpy to squishy. And I know that even the smallest readers absolutely love to see themselves in mirrors in books. Both of these encourage children to interact with the book and I’m sure they will delight in exploring the most revolting things to touch and feel. The book is illustrated with bright and colourful illustrations by Quentin Blake.
Revolting Things to Touch and Feel is available from bookstores and online retailers for a recommended retail price of R185. It’s recommended for children aged two to five years.
