Tactile Books for Young Children

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.


Every picture is touchable, from the sticky mud on the loader to the bumpy tires on the monster truck. The book has five varied spreads, and a bold textured cover. Inside, you learn the names of the different vehicles, and youre invited to touch, feel and point. 

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.

Off To the Beach

Uses high-contrast tactile illustrations, rhyming text, and page numbers and selected words that are both printed and in braille to turn a visit to the beach into a sensory experience which can be enjoyed by all children whether they are sighted, partially sighted or blind. Includes one illustration with pull tabs and another with a lift-the-flap.
