CHRISTMAS, BABY’S FIRST CLOTH BOOK is a charming boxed set that would make a perfect gift to the new little one in your life. The festive and bold green, red and white box makes wrapping unnecessary (always a plus this time of year!) and the clear plastic window gives us a peek at the sweet book inside. This fluffy fabric book features bright Christmas colors in fun illustrations that will appeal to babies and small children, and the sounds of the crinkly material inside the fabric will delight babies. My baby immediately grabbed the pages and squealed as they made exciting new noises. The story of Baby Boo and her family enjoying the beautiful outdoors and then Santa’s surprise overnight visit is joyful and comforting. Older siblings who are learning to read will enjoy helping by reading the simple story. I especially appreciated the long stroller/carseat Velcro strap to make this the perfect holiday on-the-go entertainment.
