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.

I don't normally rate things online - however, this book is so very amazing that I had to pass it along to others. My 8 month old has been playing with this book non-stop since we got it almost 3 months ago. She loves to carry it around, turn the pages and make noises with us as we make animal noises for each page. I got online to buy the other two in the series and had to pass along a good review. This is a brilliant idea and well executed! It truly is Indestructible! I can't wait for more to come out in this series.
