Illustrated by Claudia Dávila

Touch It! is a lively and easy-to-understand first science book that explores materials – their color, shape, texture, size, mass, magnetism and more.

Touch It! is part of the Primary Physical Sciences series. These books include easy-to-read text, hands-on activities, energetic illustrations and a special section for parents and teachers with more activity ideas and information. This series was created with the cooperation of a Primary Science consultant and fits science curricula in the largest states and provinces.


“The drawings are colorful and age appropriate for young children. The vocabulary is also suitable for children and has scientific validity. The text is suitable for reading by children in primary grades or for reading to them.” - Science Books and Films

“[Touch It! includes] two pages of very good science content information and teaching suggestions for parents and teachers, and an index an definitions of ‘Word to Know’. Touch It! is certain to be a book that is welcomed by many teachers, librarians, and parents. Author, Adrienne Mason and illustrator Claudia Dávila are certainly helping to fill a void.” - Canadian Materials

“This excellent series is a must-have for elementary schools.” - Canadian Children’s Book News
