Helping launch the Crinkle Books line, this wordless cloth book is filled with cellophane, which produces a satisfying "crinkly" sound when handled. Each citrus-colored page features a friendly farm animal thickly outlined in black. While the crinkling noise has little to do with the content of the book (chickens don't naturally produce such sounds, after all), infants should strongly respond to the auditory and tactile effect, as well as to the simple and appealing pictures. Simultaneously available: Jungle, Garden, and Water. Up to age 3. (Jan.)
Product dimensions: 5.90 (w) x 9.20 (h) x 0.20 (d)
