Out of Print 5 Senses Books

These out of print 5 Senses books are still loved by children, and can often be found in libraries or from used bookstores.

Dogs Go…, by Annie Horwood

Cats Go…, by Annie Horwood

These two books, Dogs Go and Cats Go, are great for this age group for the Sense of Sound (or anytime)! It would be worth it to buy a copy from a used bookstore, since they are now out of print. My class has always LOVED these. We would pull them out as a transition activity or time filler. The kids love to make the different sounds that dogs and cats make.
