Using the same innovative production technique and brilliant aesthetic cheered by parents, educators, and children alike in the acclaimed TouchThinkLearn series, here is an alphabet that literally adds a new dimension to learning. Raised die-cut pieces nestled in mirroring indented cut-outs engage readers on both visual and tactile levels. An impressive gift, this exquisitely executed design object is above all else a fabulously fun and educationally essential alphabet book.
High design, brilliant graphics, essential learning skills—these features distinguish the TouchThinkLearn titles, presenting knowledge in a new dimension. Xavier Deneux applies the same unique vision that informed TouchThink-Learn: ABC to this year's most innovative counting book. Die-cut numerals and shapes stimulate understanding of essential concepts, inviting youngest readers to engage in a meaningful and tangible hands-on experience of numbers by tracing figures and shapes to coordinate concepts and images.

"Dimensional letters and words are the natural extension of the original TTL series. And we know that dimensionalizing letters is a successful direction for this series given the strong response to TTL ABC. This extension of the highly successful TouchThinkLearn series focuses on language acquisition and moving beyond a single word-to-picture understanding to developing a larger vocabulary. This is all using the familiar TTL form of raised and depressed surfaces. Raised words will fit into the die-cut hollow of an illustration, putting words and images in contact literally. Alongside the typographic centerpiece, there will be a list of "conversation starter" words to expand the vision of each word. And this new TouchWords series will extend the visual range of these books by featuring Rilla's playful, graphic work."--
