Indestructibles Review and Giveaway!

Jack loves books. He loves when we read to him, and he loves to play with them himself. So I was excited when I was given the opportunity to review a new kind of book, caled Indestructibles!


Indestructibles™ was founded by a mother of triplets who quickly found that paper books, even "board books" are too easily turned to mush and can even be a choking hazard. Wishing to provide her children with a book that they could "read" as much as they wanted, she enlisted the help of Kaaren, who developed three working prototypes--three beautiful child-size picture books that were instant and enduring hits.
For babies, reading often looks more like chewing. By providing a book that can be "read" and easily handled, Indestructibles offers an alternative to traditional books, which are easily destroyed. All the while, babies are having fun and naturally developing essential motor and cognitive skills.

These books are
Tear Resistant - made of ultra-durable tightwoven material
Waterproof - can be chewed on, sucked on, and washed(!)
Emergent Literacy Tool - wordless pictures encourage dialogic reading
Portable - simple stitch binding allows them to slide easily into a diaper bag
Safe for Baby - meets ASTM safety standards

They sent us a copy of the "flutter, Fly" Book, and needless to say, Jack loves it! It is so cute and artistic, different from any children's books I've seen. The pictures are colorful, and it really is indestructible! I even tried (gently) tearing it, and it didn't even start to. These books are tough! The only thing it does do is bend... but it seems like it settles back into the right shape fairly quickly. =)

I learned that Indestructibles have something to offer infants from birth to toddlerhood, so they grow with your children.
