Every person has his/her own likes and dislikes about various things. Likes and dislikes are about our five senses. Five senses are see, smell, taste, hear and touch which we feel with five sense of organs are eyes, nose, tongue, ears and skin respectively. With eyes, we see beautiful and pleasing things and situations. With nose, we smell aromatic fragrances. With tongue, we taste delicious dishes. With ears, we hear pleasing sounds. With skin, we feel soft textures. 

Likes and Dislikes is a story about two friends who talked about their likes and dislikes while playing in the terrace. They discussed about what they love and hate to see, hear, taste, smell and touch. The author explained the concept very clearly with the contrasting options for each sense. The story is lucid and interesting. It is full of cute and colourful illustrations. 

At the end of the book, the author asked about one’s likes so here are mine....
