Indestructibles: All Year Round: A Book of Seasons
Snowflakes on baby’s tongue––so cold!
Fireflies on a summer night––so pretty!
Look at all the fall leaves––let’s make a pile and play!
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: I really adore all the fun colors and illustrations, featuring a multiracial family. It is also really neat that the baby grows up to a one year old during the year, presenting a great portrait of baby's own experience. The seasons are presented simply but with lush illustrations that capture each perfectly. The animals and other details in each scene make it fun just to look through- perfect for babies to examine on their own.
The indestructibles line of books are particularly great for babies, as they are made to be chewed on and held by babies. The size is great, and they are very lightweight. It's also nice to have something babies can pull and teethe on without worrying about it falling apart. They are a cross between book and toy that are loads of fun for young readers.
Final verdict: With bright colors, fun illustrations, and sweet text, ALL YEAR ROUND is a great pick for babies and young toddlers. Highly recommend for young ones who are teething and beginning to explore the world around them.
