Only what you need for your baby. Really. (OK – and some fantastic things you don’t that are pretty cool.)
Who doesn’t love Sandra Boynton? (If you raised your hand, it’s all right: I’m sure you have many other wonderful features we will grow to love. With time. After we forget that you don’t enjoy hilarious pictures of dancing hippos.)
Most new parents will get some Boynton books at their baby shower and Astrid has intermittently liked the ones she received. The ones she loves though are from Boynton’s Little Pookie series. Don’t ask me why she’s latched onto the little piggie over all the rest in her collection, but there it is. Maybe it’s because Pookie and his family are a steady cast in all of them and the story lines are recognizable. Dunno. Whatever it is, they’re a big hit and will probably be a winner with parents and little ones on your gift list too.
There are five board books in the series so far and a boxed set of four of them (which is missing our favorite, Happy Birthday Little Pookie) so you can pick up a single for a drive-by gifting or as a fun add-on, or get the set + the birthday book for a first or second birthday party present.
