Sensing Nature

Instinctively, babies use all of their senses to learn about the world around them. This book is inspired by that method of discovery to focus on the different ways we can learn about natural environments. Bright photos of the real things baby might experience are scattered around the vibrant illustrations of natural settings. Take this book along the next time you’re in the great outdoors, and see if you can find ways to stimulate all of your baby’s senses with nature, just like the characters in the book.

Tie-in Activity: Bath time is a wonderful time to stimulate your baby’s senses. Let him hear the water splash as you gently tap it; feel fizzy soap bubbles; smell the shampoo; see colorful toys; and take a drink of (clean) water.
