It's been our son's favorite since he was about 9 months old. The pictures are beautiful, colorful, and simple. Not boring, not crowded, just what it should be. The text is sweet and simple, the rhymes are thoughtful and not dumb (you know those books!), and the sentences are short enough to hold a baby's attention so we have time to get all the words out before he turns the page.
The one downside is that this book is really cheaply made. The cover is nice and padded, but the pages are cheap. The pages are thinner than other board book pages, but the bigger problem is the actual surface of the pages. Our son - an impressive drooler and finger-sucker - loves to turn the pages himself with his drool-y fingers and sometimes kiss the pages too. What I didn't learn until too late is that you can't do that with this book. For our other board books, you can get some drool on them and it just makes the pages stick together a little bit but that's it. For this book, drool made the pages stick together so much that when you separated them later, the paper tore. (See my pics in the photo gallery for examples) I'm thinking that we can't be the only parents with a drooly baby, right??
Quality notwithstanding, this is as quality a baby's book as they come. I love this book through and through.
The pages are thick & shiny board-like, which I prefer because toddlers can't bend or rip them like regular paper pages. The front & back covers are thick and sturdy with a slight padded feel to them. It is very sturdy & actually looks almost new for having been heavily used over 3 years now.
I've purchased it multiple times instead of a card for new babies in our family-we write a small note about sharing our favorite story!
So many children's books have terrible story lines or messages in them, but definitely not the case with this book. It's a very simple book with no story, just about how you love (and always will love) every part and aspect of your baby. It can teach kids some body parts (like fingers, toes, ears, nose, hair, eyes), too. It rhymes, too.
The only negative is, for a board book, the pages aren't very sturdy. The pages are maybe a third or half the thickness of other board books we own. Hopefully it'll hold up, because I am sure we will be reading this book frequently!
I love it.
My daughter is 7 months old now and she loves it too. She tries to pick the little boy off of the pages, and she loves a shirt that the boy is wearing in one of the pages.
Anyhow, the illustrations are very sweet. It's kind of cute to see what the teddy bear is doing in each of the pictures; sometimes he is doing what the boy is doing, and other times he is reacting to what the boy is doing.
I want to explain how I feel about this book, but I don't really know quite how to say it...before our daughter was born, I thought crying babies were obnoxious. Now, when my daughter cries, I feel sorry that she is sad, and I want to help her feel better. Even though my daughter is a baby with very strong emotions, I seldom lose my patience with her, because I'm just crazy about her. I feel like she is the best baby in the world. This book, to me, puts that feeling into words--as I read the book I'm expressing to my daughter that I just love everything about her, because she's a great little person. I doubt that my daughter understands much of it now, but I plan to keep it in our book rotation for a very long time. I think it would be great to hear this kind of book as a little kid! So reassuring and comforting.
Something else that is really nice about this book is that it is a little poetic. It rhymes, but not awkwardly...it's just right. As I read it aloud, this book has a beautiful cadence.
The only thing I would change about this book is that the pages are kind of thin for a board book. Usually board books have thick cardboard for the cover and each of the pages. This book has a slightly puffy cover and pages that are more like a thicker cardstock. I would have preferred all thick pages.
This is definitely, definitely worth buying! I'm so glad we got it now. Every little kid should have this book (and someone to read it to them)!
