You Can't Taste a Pickle With Your Ear
by Harriet Ziefert
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.

A bike trip to the recycling center, charity shop, and local farmers’ market show how recycling and reusing materials—as well as using less gas and buying local produce—can really help save the world. George even gets a favorite toy fixed! Highly original and eye-catching illustrations combine painting and photographs to draw children into the world of recycling.
