Why can't you hear a siren with your eyes? Spot an airplane with your hands? And how come a pickle on your ear isn't delicious? In You Can't Take a Pickle with Your Ear kids discover how each of their five senses is hard at work all day long, providing them with information and helping them get the most out of their daily lives. Whenever you think, "I'm oh-so-sweet," Pull off your socks and smell your feet! Sections such as "Hold Your Nose" and "Stick Out Your Tongue" (not the same time!) encourage hands-on investigations of what's happening inside kids' bodies and why a tongue is best for pickle tasting.

About the Author:

Harriet Ziefert is the author of more than two hundred books for children. The mother of two and the grandmother of four, she lives and works in Maplewood, New Jersey.

Amanda Haley holds a B.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She lives in Ohio with her husband and their golden retriever, Sally.

From Publishers Weekly:

"Your nose, skin, ears, eyes and tongue are working all of the time," notes Ziefert in this whimsical, if somewhat uneven, primer, "even when you are not paying attention to them." Each sense gets its own brief chapter, kicked off with a few well-worn observations or factoids to help readers understand both how the senses work and how they fit into a grander scheme. A spread or two of mildly playful rhymed musings follow ("Worms are soft,/ beetles are hard./ Can you find some/ in your yard?"). But it's Haley's (It's a Baby's World) free-wheeling watercolor-and-ink cartooning and frisky handwritten typography that add jolts of humor and energy. For a full-bleed violet-hued painting showing a boy going to bed ("Do you see shadows on the floor?"), the artist's slightly off-kilter perspective, plus an unperturbed canine companion on the floor, offer readers comic relief and reassurance alongside the elongated shadows. Adults reading with a child will appreciate the chapter conclusions, which offer a list of questions that may well spark discussion: "Do you ever get angry and pretend you can't hear people?" or "When you shut your eyes, what happens to your eyeballs?" Given how much series like The Magic School Bus have upped the ante in the science category, older children may not find much meat here. Preschoolers, however, may develop a new awareness thanks to this book's gentle promptings and Haley's inviting illustrations. Ages 4-7.
