Touch and learn.

Soft. Rough. Bumpy. Smooth. d104ures are all around us and all through this innovative board book. d104ures takes readers on an African safari where they learn about safari animals throughout this cross-concept enhanced board book. Caregivers will enjoy the tactile teaching and all children will love the discovery in d104ures.

About the Discovery Concepts series: Discovery Concepts books celebrate Montessori's curious discovery approach to learning. Maria Montessori believed "the hand is the chief teacher of the brain," encouraging students to learn by touch and created specially designed materials such as sandpaper letters to support this method. Inspired by her teachings, each book in the Discovery Concepts board book collection uses tactile enhancements to engage young children in discovering the topic at hand. Beyond the tactile elements each title is designed to capture a child's imagination and curiosity as they learn.
