The Lovereading4Kids comment

March 15 Book of the Month Cloth books are the perfect thing to tuck into baby’s buggy or cot, a lovely way to introduce the very, very young to books, and perfect for sharing. Bright colours and silky soft pages make this particularly appealing. A smiley little panda appears on each page, exploring a garden, riding a train and playing in the park before sailing into the night sky in a balloon at bedtime. There’s lots to point at and name. A page of crackly foil gives a very satisfying rustle when squeezed, extra fun for baby. ~ Andrea Reece

Even tiny babies will enjoy looking at the brilliantly coloured illustrations in this very first book. The peach-skin soft cloth is perfect for little hands to grasp and the surprise sound that comes from the crackly foil sewn inside the book will delight babies.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
