Summary: Babies, toddlers, and preschoolers can explore the whats and the ways of the blanket they love. This is a cloth book that unfolds to be a blanket.
Type of Reading: family reading, playtime reading, interactive reading
Recommended Age: read together: 0 to 2; read yourself: na
Interest Level: 0 to 4
Age of Child: Shared with 4½-year-old child.
Young Reader Reaction: Our preschooler liked looking at the blanket, counting the hearts, naming colors, and playing with the textures. It was not as popular as Baby Love.
Adult Reader Reaction: The idea of a three 'page' book that unfolds to be a sensory object is wonderful and offers great possibilities. This would have been wonderful to have 5 years ago. We looked everywhere for the wshing instructions ... you'll need them, it will be that much fun for an infant.
Pros: If introduced early, this has the potential to become a child's lovey. It offers parents a chance to share object identification and textures in a more unique way than just a story.
Cons: Because there is a rattle embedded in the page, this is a book/blanket that most likely can't go to preschool with your child. Be prepared with a second lovey.
Borrow or Buy: Buy, if you're looking for a great shower or new baby gift. This will be the most fun for parents of children less than one year old.
