This book is called Shhh What a funny name! It is written by Julia Sykes and the pictures are drawn by Tim Warnes. It must be about Christmas because there is a picture of a big jolly Father Christmas on the cover. He has his fingers to his lips saying Shhh, which is what we do when we tell people to be quiet.
Now turn the page and you will find your first Feely Picture. There are two figures here. The top one is Santa and the bottom one, which is much smaller is a snowman. Let's feel Santa first. He is carrying a huge brown sack of toys on his back. Can you feel it in the middle of the picture? It's a big bumpy textured shape and out of the top sticks some presents.
