Garden Friends – Australian touch-and-feel book for the youngest of readers

Garden Friends by Natalie Marshall

It can be tricky to find books with the right balance of bright colours and simple words for young readers but Garden Friends is all that and more. Perfect for babies to preschoolers, this is a book to help the littlest people form their words.

What are our friends in the garden doing today? This vibrant board book uses common creatures such as birds, bugs and a cat to teach simple nouns and verbs. My toddler has been carrying it around everywhere, in love with its engaging design.

Garden Friends by Natalie Marshall

Creator of Garden Friends, Natalie Marshall, has used a combination of bright colours, tangible textures, and a variety of patterns to create an eye-catching look. This is one of a series of touch-and-feel books Natalie has created and all of them are equally delightful.

With soft and shiny textures to engage the tiniest of hands and minimal text allowing a focus on each word, this is a book that can last the early years. You can get one at Five Mile Press for $10, plus $5 delivery flat-rate within Australia.
