Tactile Books for Young Children

Briana Staff Image

Many children learn best when they engage all of their senses. This is the case for children with print disabilities like blindness or visual impairment. However, books with tactile features are great for all young children. From bumpy tires in Trucks by Dawn Sirett to spiky toothbrush bristles in Getting Ready by Cocoretto, these tactile books for young children have plenty to touch and feel!

Fuzzy Yellow Ducklings

Find a surprise on every page as textured shapes magically turn into colorful creatures that beg to be touched and petted.


Explore vehicles with lots to touch and simple text. Children can feel the sticky mud on the loader, the bumpy tires on the monster truck, the rough grill on the concrete mixer, and more!

Little Critters

Discover a bee and its hive by tracing the raised outline on one side, and the concave shape on the other! Related words on each spread offer parents and children a springboard for further conversation.

Getting Ready

Varying textures and bright colors make familiar objects in this board book fun to interact with and perfect as a springboard for conversation and object identification.
