Publisher Comments:

Announcing a brand new idea in publishing books for babies: the completely durable, completely safe Indestructibles. Published on the same paper-like material used in shipping envelopes, Indestructibles are 100% baby-proof: chew-proof, drool-proof, and rip-proof. That's because Indestructibles not only will not tear or turn gummy with teething, but they are also completely washable.

Indestructibles are also energetic, beautiful, and created just for baby. The printing material reproduces color artwork with uncommon depth, and with no residual inkiness; the artwork, paintings by Kaaren Pixton and reminiscent of Eric Carle, is happy, each page a simple, colorful image of an animal or bird or insect against a rich, textured background. The effect is 3D-like and completely visual. There are no words, making each perfect for parents and babies to look at together, with mom or dad telling the story.

Three titles launch the series: Creep! Crawl! about animals that crawl, Flutter! Fly! about animals that fly, and Wiggle! March! about farm animals--books babies can really sink their teeth into.

About the Author

Kaaren Pixton is a fine artist and children's educator who has been making art with children for thirty years. The idea of printing books on rip proof, waterproof, paperlike material was developed by Kaaren and her daughter-in-law, Amy Pixton, a mother of triplets who came up with idea after bits of traditional board books found their way into her babies' mouths. Originally from Ireland, Kaaren lives in Portland, Oregon, and is the proud grandmother of eight. Amy lives in Kansas City, Kansas, with her husband and their three children.

This was a gift for my son's first birthday. I plan to buy more in the series. It is wordless and beautifully illustrated. It is perfect for a little boy who tears and chews everything. Plus, his big sister (6 years old)tested its indestructableness without us realizing it! "They are right Mom, I tried and tried to tear his book and it just won't tear!" YIKES! Good thing it's true!

Also, big sister likes to make up stories to go along with the pictures, so it's good for her too! The illustrations are large and simple and he seems to really focus on them. Great to tuck into my purse or diaper bag. Very, very lightweight and thin yet it doesn't rip. Much better to carry than heavy, bulky board books.Since it's washable, it's great for taking when we eat out too. GREAT PRODUCT!
