Have you seen Mama and Baby Indestructibles? We’ve all seen picture books about mama animals and their babies, haven’t we? But If you know anything about how babies approach books, you’ll be super impressed by this version. First because of how its made. Thin Tyvek-like pages allow babies to grasp, crumple, and turn pages without tearing. And to droll and chew on the pages without damaging the book. Then by the engaging, modern graphics. Vivid, well-defined pictures encourage natural conversation between parent and baby. Additionally recognizing pictures builds vocabulary and encourages storytelling. As babies develop language, those stories become more complex. Picture books delight little ones, build memories, and serve as conversation starters. When we ask questions and share ideas, we enrich the storytelling experience.
Taking time to share picture books with a child strengthens bonds and builds memories. In addition, the pictures serve as conversation starters. Admittedly, you’ll be the one doing all the talking at first. Think about how important that is in creating emotional ties. The sound of your voice is one way the baby recognizes you. In that way, reading together reenforces attachments. But Mama and Baby Indestructibles is not just for babies. Older “little kids” like them too. So embrace the opportunity to ask questions and share ideas. When you do, you’ll be enriching the storytelling experience. Name the animals. And share information. Perhaps commenting that a baby kangaroo is called a joey. And a baby owl an owlet. Or asking, who swims side by side? Not only mama duck and her duckling. Mama and dolphin baby do too. Nontoxic. Safety-tested. Meets or exceeds CPSIA guidelines. Machine washable.
