Will is very texture oriented. He loves books that allow him to touch the page and feel the items on there. We recently checked out two of the Touch The Art Books: Tickle Tuts Toes and Catch Picassos Rooster. These books definitely fit the bill for us. These are both board books, so there is no destroying them. Each page has something for your kids to interact with be it feeling the bumpy pyramids to feeling a pet cat. Wills favorite though has to be the mummies. I love that this is a great introduction to both art and history. I love how they are able to incorporate famous works (like van Gogh's Two Rats) into a children's book. At the end of each book, there is also a section that gives background information for both you (the parent) and your kids. It helps you gain a better understanding of what you are looking at and gives you some additional things to talk to your kids about. These books are geared for the 4-6 age group, but my two year old loved them just as much as his five year old sister!
