This is a very charming book but be aware it is TINY - approx 2"x2" or smaller. Looks like a doll's book.

didn't read the specifications and turns out this is a pocket sized book. I was very dissapointed because it was supposed to be part of a baby shower gift. Would not reccomend this to anyone!! Much too small.

Not quite what I thought

Where I work we have board books that are great for little hands to hold and stand up fairly well to be handled by those little hands. I was afraid I was going to tear this book apart just by looking to see what it was like. The binding along the seam doesn't appear to provide adequate protection against little hands and I am afraid it will be coming apart very soon after little use. As I am giving it as a complimentary addition to the full size book I will have no way of knowing how it holds up. So I will not by any more board books that are made like this one was. Also it was a chunky board book instead of a smaller board book like the type that I have used before.

This book was just delivered and when I opened the package my husband and I laughed out loud... this book is so very tiny that it fits in the palm of my hand! The pictures were cute, but the 'book' is so small that it is just not practical. While opening the package did make me smile, I have no use for an ity bity book like this so I returned it.
