Hola, Granja! / Hello, Farm! (Indestructibles)
Who rolls in the mud? Playful pigs!
Who greets the day? Crowing roosters!
Indestructibles is the trusted series for easing little ones into story time. Beloved by babies and their parents, Indestructibles are built for the way babies “read” (i.e., with their hands and mouths) and are:
Rip Proof—made of ultra-durable tight-woven material
Waterproof—can be chewed on, drooled on, and washed!
Emergent Literacy Tool—bright pictures and few or no words encourage dialogic reading
Portable—lightweight books can go anywhere, perfect for the diaper bag and for travel
Safe for Baby—meets ASTM safety standards
What I loved: This book is part of the indestructibles line, and it is fantastic! Babies can chew on it safely, as it is made with non-toxic materials and will not fall apart. It is also impossible to tear and easy to wash. This will stand up to even the strongest babies/toddlers!
As for the book itself, it's very cute, with low words to image ratio, making the pages turn fast. This is great for infants, whose attention spans will match. The animals and their settings are bright and colorful, with plenty of appeal for developing eyes. The language is simple and repetitive, which is perfect for this young age. The added bonus is that it will teach these animal names in both Spanish and English.
Final verdict: Perfect for infants and young toddlers, HOLA, GRANJA is a delightful journey around the farm that will stand up to even the toughest use! Highly recommend for very young readers.
