Join our MVP Kids out on the trail as we explore our five senses. We’ll see colorful flowers and insects, hear birds and streams, feel lots of textures, smell the woods, taste delicious hiking snacks, and develop a love and respect for nature.

Rhythmic, rhyming text playfully tells the story of five diverse children discovering the senses of sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell while hiking. Various tools for the senses are seen in the colorful illustrations, such as cochlear implants, glasses, binoculars, and magnifying glass. Children are shown playing creatively and respectfully in the natural environment and following guidelines to take nothing away and leave nothing behind on the trail. The descriptive words will expand readers’ vocabulary around the five senses, and the detailed illustrations will charm adults and children alike. Teaching tips for caregivers provide helpful insight into a young child’s sensory development with activity suggestions for creating learning experiences around the five senses and building awareness and empathy for individuals with sensory impairments.

This book showcases diversity in positive ways with characters that span various cultures, ethnicities, family situations, physical challenges and more. Readers of all backgrounds will see themselves in these pages while learning to value the diversity within their own community and being exposed to differences from around the world.
