Cloth Books - Big Rex and Friends

Big Rex and Friends by Roger Priddy

Fantasticosaurus is all I can say about this book, which is filled with various appealing dinosaurs. This was a great gift from my in-laws to our baby girl this past week. She really, really enjoys it and her parents are having fun with it too. Even with its dinosaurs names do not fret as they are easy to pronounce and the back cover besides being colorfully designed has all the dinosaurs and their names phonetically spelled out to assist. Who knows after enjoying this book your child when they are older could be wowing his or her kindergarten teacher with correctly pronouncing dinosaur names? It only took a day or so for me to get the hang of it, but I am tongued tied on just about anything with more than two syllables.

Although this is a prefect touch and feel book for babies it also has the ability to grow with them into preschool age. I can imagine an older sibling might want to make off with it when the baby is napping. Each page has some type of fun texture attached to the dinosaur picture that blends well with the rhyming text. The pictures are large and vibrant and include a variety of enticing borders and the pages are soft padded. This seems to be one in a Cloth Book Series by Priddy, which we are now going to seek out. Be aware though if you look for this online it seems the pictures they have of the book appear to all be in some type of hanging package container. It kind of gives a not so pleasant appearance, but don’t let that keep you from seeking it out.

Very cool! I also really like the Priddy books...very informational for little ones. We've been buying them for KJ since he was about a year old, and he still reads them all the time.

Maybe, next time I will try to say the names of Rex and his friends with the help of the back cover.
