through April 21 at 5 Minutes for Books.
Although I did not order Welcome, Little One thinking that my 4 1/2 year old son would love it, when I took it out of the box, he scrambled up beside me to look at it and sat rapt as I previewed this creative book.
It’s oversized, which makes it easy to share with a child, the interior pages are colorful and interactive and include
- a soft baby blanket and a fuzzy heart to feel
- other pop-up hearts
- a letter to take out of an envelope
- and a musical chip to listen to.
The book ends with a mirrored insert that excites kids every time they peer in.
I like the text a lot too. It’s sweet and affirming, but not overly sappy or trite.
I would think that the target audience would be around two or three years of age (and any woman filled with new-mother hormones), but judging from the reaction that my son had, it could become a traditional favorite that kids might enjoy year after year.
Welcome, Little One is a deluxe interactive novelty book celebrating the magic and joy that come with the arrival of a new baby – an irresistibly sweet gift, or a treat for your family to enjoy yourselves.
In this special interactive gift book, beloved author and artist Sandra Magsamen celebrates the miracle of baby’s arrival. With soothing, lulling text and a wide variety of novelty elements, including touch-and-feels, pull-tabs, lift-the-flaps, a musical sound chip, pop-ups and more, readers are invited to remember all of the special moments that are experienced when baby arrives.
