A Nose Like This

Most babies like noses. A baby might like to grab the nose of mom, dad, or whoever is holding him, and eventually be able to point to his own nose. But noses come in lots of shapes and sizes, and this cheerful board book uses both illustrations and full-color photos to take a look at some unique noses found in the animal world. Your child will see that a nose by any other name is still a nose, even it if looks very different from his own.

Tie-in Activity: The ability to group things into categories is an essential part of a child’s growth and development. Sorting things is a great way to encourage this skill. Start simple, perhaps having your child sort stuffed animals in one pile, blocks in another. Eventually, you can make the sorting more difficult, perhaps sorting stuffed animals by size or blocks by colors.
