my duck book

my duck book - Jellycat I saw this when present shopping for a three month old baby, and nearly bought it. It looked like a remarkably good book for an infant under the age of one. It was engaging to both visual and tactile senses - bright colors, nice things to grab and feel on every page. There were even some simple words.

Ideally, I would have liked to test it properly by putting it in my mouth, but I felt that would have caused a scene, so I can't tell you what it tasted like. It certainly seemed to be waterproof, at any rate, though I'm guessing you probably can't machine-wash it. If you want to create a life-long love of books in a very small child, you could do a lot worse than my duck book. Recommended! More details at Boomerang Toys.
