Touch the Poem

by Arnold Adoff Illustrated by Lisa Desimini

Award-winning poet Arnold Adoff presents a delicious and airy picture book of poems about the senses, from our fingers and toes to our lips, eyes, noses and ears. From the joy of stomping through thick mud, to the luxury of soaking in a bathtub full of bubbles, Touch the Poem captures the simple joys of childhood.
