A vibrant book that engages the senses and encourages close observation

This book inviteskids to discover what their sense of smell can teach them about the world. Young readers can roam along as a father tells his son about taking in the deliciousness of a pastry shop, the woodsy smells of a lumberyard, the nose-wrinkling stink of trash, the sweet scents of a fruit market or the freshness of spring on its way.
