Board books are definitely the route to go with infants because they are highly indestructible. This board book is absolutely beautiful. I YouTube all books before buying them to make sure I am a fan, and that they teach the things I find important to my child as he grows. I LOVE the vintage aspect of this simple, sweet book which teaches all the seasons to baby and why each is different and beautiful. The illustrations are so vibrant and my son notices this too. My only problem was that I ordered the same book TWICE and it came damaged in exactly the same way both times. I won't take a star away from my rating because this isn't a flaw with the book (some people don't differentiate the two), but instead it is a flaw with Target's shipping/packaging department. I did however get refunded, but that isn't the point...it was a hassle to have this problem and try to get it resolved TWICE, and it was supposed to be a very special Easter gift for my son's first Easter. I remember having a problem with another book I ordered from Target being damaged, so I hope this isn't going to be a regular occurrence.
