Synopses & Reviews
Here is a book babies can really sink their gums into. Built for the way babies read, Indestructibles are printed on an amazing paperlike material that can't be ripped, torn, or punctured. Indestructibles are 100 percent safe and nontoxic, and if they get too funky, just throw them in the washing machine or dishwasher. They're made for baby to hold, grab, chew, pull, and bend, and are designed to create an even more special bond between reader and baby. Printed without words, the parent gets to make up the story, or just cuddle with baby while they explore together.
Plip-Plop Pond! is about a frog who visits his friends in the pond. Kaaren Pixton's art is bright, swirling with color, and reminiscent of Eric Carle, and it attains an almost 3D richness on the special paperlike stock of the book.
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.
