What is a pickle? A green (see), sour (taste), crunchy (hear) vegetable? What other senses can we use to describe it? In five color-coded sections, with wonderfully simple but descriptive pictures and phrases, we see examples of the five senses. Add spicy (smell) and slippery (touch) and you have a complete pickle!
Written and illustrated by Caldecott Honor winner Rachel Isadora I Hear a Pickle is a wonderful picture book that will help even the youngest children explore their five senses.

* "Isadora's book about the five senses is aimed perfectly at another sense--kids' sense of humor."--The Horn Book, starred review Caldecott Honor winner Rachel Isadora's sweet and simple introduction to the five senses is perfect for the youngest children, who will recognize themselves in charming vignettes portraying a wide range of childhood activities. Hearing, smelling, seeing, touching, tasting--our five senses allow us to experience the world in so many ways With our ears we hear the birds sing; with our nose we smell the stinky cheese; with our eyes we see the moon and stars (and sometimes glasses help us see even better ); with our skin we feel the rain (and learn not to touch the hot stove ); and with our tongue we can taste our favorite foods. Isadora's lively art reveals the power and delight of each sense.
