Pet that macaw! He's right on the cover, he has a soft feathery patch you can stroke, and he's just one of the animals with a tactile patch to explore in this 10-page board book. The five double-page spreads are organized by color, and each features a new sensation: the gray rhinoceros is wrinkly (the rhino is pictured with other gray creatures, including a dolphin and a mouse), the crab, (who appears on a page with a goldfish and an orange kitten) is hard, and so on. All the animal pictures are color photos on a white ground. About two dozen creatures are depicted in all.
