Overview

Here is a book babies can really sink their gums into. Built for the way babies read, Indestructibles are printed on an amazing paperlike material that can’t be ripped, torn, or punctured. Indestructibles are 100 percent safe and nontoxic, and if they get too funky, just throw them in the washing machine or dishwasher. They’re made for baby to hold, grab, chew, pull, and bend, and are designed to create an even more special bond between reader and baby. Printed without words, the parent gets to make up the story, or just cuddle with baby while they explore together.

Humpty Dumpty introduces the work of Jonas Sickler, a children’s illustrator whose paintings, full of detail and personality, have a fresh, whimsical sensibility, a pleasure for both baby and parents. The book gives a new spin on a traditional nursery rhyme, so parents can really have fun with the subject—Humpty Dumpty is about an egg named Humpty who’s perched on the Great Wall of China. The text for the nursery rhyme is printed on the back cover.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
What an interesting concept. Put a well-known nursery rhyme in a new setting. In this case we have Humpty Dumpty sitting on the great wall in China. For those who may not be familiar with the rhyme it is printed on the back cover because this is a wordless book. It is part of a series called "Indestructibles" which according to the blurb on the back cover are built for the way babies "read" with their hands and mouths. These books will not rip or tear and are washable. They are made for baby to hold, grab, chew, pull and bend. Wow that is a mouthful. But parents and teachers can find many uses for these books. You can tell your own story and point out many colorful items in the eye-catching illustrations such as the kimonos, hats, hairstyles and a bit more about ancient China. Teachers could use the book to let kids who are struggling readers tell their own stories and older ones to write a story based on what they see in the pictures. Sickler has a twist in the end that changes the lesson in the original rhyme, but leads to a happy ending. This wordless book is one that could really be used beyond the suggested age group.
