KFYK - Kingfisher Young Knowledge is a science-based, highly visual, inspirational learning experience. Lively, engaging text explains the basics of a favourite subject, zooming in on intriguing aspects illustrated with stunning full-colour photographs. Project spreads, featuring activities to do at home or when out and about, encourage hands-on involvement and understanding. KFYK Senses introduces readers to the fascinating world of the senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. It looks closely at our sense organs and how we perceive the world around us, and examines some of the super senses of the animal and plant kingdoms. Young readers will discover the creatures with the sharpest eyesight, the keenest sense of smell and the most delicate sense of touch, as well as finding out about extra senses such as the echolocation used by bats and sharks. Fun projects encourage children to find out more about how senses work and how they are used in communication.
