A Touch & Feel Book About Sports

Touch & feel books are common with farm animals and dinosaurs, but in terms of sports, there's nothing available that excites and engages young readers to explore their senses and expand their vocabulary.

Introducing You Can Play Sports, the first touch & feel book that uses materials from popular sports balls to create a fun and interactive early childhood learning experience.

Explore baseball, basketball, football, golf, hockey, soccer, tennis, and volleyball!

Designed for Ages 0-4

You Can Play Sports features eight different sports with a textured ball for each, allowing children to create meaningful associations in an interactive way. Sports are massively beneficial for children as they grow up, teaching life lessons and aiding in the development of social skills, physical fitness, and mental/emotional intelligence.

What's Inside?

There are eight popular sports to explore! Each spread includes a modern illustration and diverse cast of characters, a fun rhyme that teaches key sports terminology, and of course a ball on each page that's made from material that actually looks and feels like the real thing.

Created By Parents and Athletes

We're a small independent company of just three people. We all live in Colorado and have day jobs in Sales, Product Development, and Engineering at separate tech and data companies. Oddly enough, those skills have all come in handy as we've spent nights and weekends on this fun side project.

Here's a little more about us and our connection to sports and kids.
