Indestructibles are the 100 percent baby proof, chew proof, rip proof, completely washable, and nontoxic series of books. Books built for the way babies read, Indestructibles are printed on an amazing nontoxic, paperlike material that holds up to endless chewing, gumming, gnawing, grabbing, bending, and pulling. Then, once the books get dirty, parents can throw them in a dishwasher or washing machine to make them clean as new.
The title is adapted from classic nursery rhymes and illustrated by Jonas Sickler. Sickler’s paintings are whimsical and fun, filled with dazzling textures and eye-popping color. They will grab and keep a baby’s attention, and delight adults. The book offers a multicultural twist on a classic nursery rhyme -- Old MacDonald Has a Farm, set in Bolivia is full of llamas, alpacas, sheep, and cows. The text for the nursery rhyme is printed on the back cover.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I absolutely love these books. I think they are a must have for anyone with babies or young toddlers. My son absolutely loves them. When he was just crawling he would get frustrated with board books. He wanted books that looked and felt like Mommy's. When a girl at one of my play dates recommended these I was skeptical. But they really do the trick. They feel like paper, but my son can naw on them, drool on them, try to rip them apart, but they just hold fast for another day (trust me, he's 13 months with 12 teeth, he chews on everything). The only thing I would change is that there are no words. Not that it's a problem now. But when he's older and we're looking for a book on the shelf to read before bed, I would love to be able to grab one of these and reminisce about how it was his favorite book, even as an infant. But other than that one self indulgent wish, I highly recommend these books!
