Curious Baby: My Curious World
Curious Baby: My Curious World. "By" H.A. Rey. 2009. [September 2009]. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 10 "pages".
Is it a toy? Is it a book? Is it a bumper for your crib? That's for you to decide I suppose. Or for your little one to decide as the case may be. (Whether it goes in the book basket or the toy one.)
This "book" is cloth--it makes a nice scrunchy, crinkly sound too--and has a friendly message that you can share with your little one. A message about being a curious baby. It also has a mirror on one of its "pages."
The illustrations are done in Rey's classic style. Which is something that I can appreciate. Love the mirror, because babies *do* love to look at themselves and 'play.' Love the crinkly sound. Love the versatility of this one as well. Baby can do whatever he/she wants. Grabbing its soft pages, etc.
