Flip-Over Concept Books: PARTS OF A WHOLE is a book designed for children with low vision. These concept books provide interactive, independent learning for young children as they build basic concepts and develop early tactile skills. The format of PARTS OF A WHOLE (and future Flip-Over Concept Books) consist of tactile, full color panels that can be turned freely until the child finds adjacent panels that match, continue a line or pattern, complete a sequence, build an image, and so on. The goal in PARTS OF A WHOLE is for the child to find two adjacent panels that complete the whole picture as shown in the first (or left-hand) panel. Objects depicted in the book:

  • Apple
  • Ball
  • Butterfly
  • Cup
  • Egg
  • Fish
  • Heart
  • Leaf
  • Star
  • Turtle

PARTS OF A WHOLE introduces these concepts and skills:

  • Tactile and visual discrimination of various textures and shapes–sometimes with subtle differences
  • Familiarization with basic geometry terms such as symmetry, straight, curved, half, while, circle, oval, and star
  • Global exploration (feeling an entire image in one tactile glance) versus systematic exploration (carefully examining the specific details of an image that help identify it)
  • Understanding of tactile representation – comparing the visual/tactile image to the real object (if available)
  • Exposure to basic science terms –fish (tail fin, dorsal fin, pectoral fin), turtle (shell, head, tail, legs), leaf (stem, veins, blade, midrib), butterfly (forewings, hind wings, antennae).
  • Tactile/visual matching of similar shapes
