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

Synopsis

Baby's Very First Cloth Book by Fiona Watt

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.
