my book says:
Concrete nouns name something that is tangible. you can see, touch, taste, smell, or hear these words.
examples: see--sky
touch--desk
taste--ice cream
smell--flowers
hear--bell

Concrete nouns also name things that have a specific definition, such as nouns that refer to time or date.
examples: Labor Day
Five O'Clock
spring
Saturday
midnight
noon


Abstract nouns name an idea, a feeling, a quality, or a characteristic. These are things that cannot be touched or seen. These are words that could have several definitions depending upon the way you interpret them.
examples: hate
love
courage
freedom
faith
attitude
happiness
