Stories are too complicated for a 1 year old - cute, but not what I expected
Reviewed in the United States on May 16, 2018
- great for my 1 year old to hold
- she loves "reading" them and mostly flipping the pages
- biggest win for us: they are small (about the size of the palm of your hand), but she loves reading and likes to have books in her crib (so she can read them before she falls asleep and when she wakes up). These books are the perfect size for this, because she tends to roll over the bigger books when she sleeps and it wakes her up and upsets her for a minute. With these, I can stick them in between her crib mattress and back of crib, and she can get them out when she wakes up. She doesn't chew on them (but our dogs do and can pretty quickly tear them up), so I wouldn't recommend putting the in their crib if they chew on them. They come apart/tear off easier than other board books we have.
- Story is too complicated for a 1 year old. When I read "my first library", I expected it to be geared toward the littlest kids learning their first words. I expected more of a flashcard type book especially since the books are so small, I thought it would be perfect to draw her attention to the right color/word/whatever. My daughter likes them but missed opportunity there...
*but if you are looking for very simple flashcard-type books, Target has some for the bathtub that are about 5 pages, that are very simple/straightforward and reviews colors and numbers.
