The Miracles of the Human Touch by Molly Burton is an insightful book that speaks about the importance of touching each other with the help of the five senses, and the sixth sense. Touch is very important right from the moment which leads to creation. It is the beating heart that builds the blood, bones, and organs while in the mother's womb. Children are nourished by the touch of their parents while growing up. It is not easy for anyone to thrive without touch and it is essential to everyone from the time they are born till they die, and beyond that.
It is only after reading this book that readers will actually realize how important human touch is in everybody's lives and how everyone aches for it. I like the author's approach to the topic; she does it aesthetically, making it interesting and engaging. The pictures shared in the book make the concept tangible and there is something very spiritual and magical about the way Burton tackles something which goes unnoticed most of the time. This book will definitely make readers more aware of the five senses. I like her comparison of 'us' to a bead touching all the others in a necklace to complete the pattern, and the creativity with which the topic is expressed and presented. Readers will definitely find the entire concept appealing. The topic definitely makes the book endearing and will help readers look at human touch with an entirely new perspective once they finish reading this book.
