Embossing creates a raised, textured surface on the pages of this unique board book, so letters and numbers can be identified by both sight and touch. This multisensory experience engages and stimulates younger children's developing senses. Seeing the number or letter, touching it, and saying it out loud helps little ones make meaningful connections and retain what they've learned. This technique has been shown to be especially effective for helping learning disabled children, beginning readers, home school students, struggling readers, and dyslexic students. In "Wild Animal Alphabet" tracing the little bumps on each letter will help children learn the alphabet. They'll learn the names of 26 wild animals too! A matching quiz at the end of the book reinforces the book's contents. Charming illustrations throughout.
