It’s scratch and sniff meets the pop-up book with the cuteness of a puppy thrown in.
The newest book that needs to find a home on your child’s book shelf is Mo Smells Red, a “press 2 smell experience.” The book for kids follows Mo, a black and white spotted pooch with the hardest working schnoz in the book biz. Mo’s sniffer picks up a series of red delights – strawberries, roses and more, teaching kids about colors with the surprise bonus of real scents thrown in!
Based on the rescue dog owned by illustrator Amanda Giacomini, the story by Margaret Hyde manages to put in words what a color can be and how a dog can sniff out the mysteries behind the hue. It’s a magical story – and the donation from each sale that goes to Best Friends Animal Society allows this to double as a gift for your kids and a gift for animals in need this season.
