Workman Publishing Children's Books Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)

Baby Brandon's Adventures
Holiday Gift Guide presents...
Children's Story Books and New Releases from Workman Publishing



Perfect Piggies! Book and Plush Set by Sandra Boynton

Give a piggy for cuddling this holiday season It’s a book, it’s a toy, it’s a perfect gift. It can even be accompanied by music. The song, "Perfect Piggies," is available as a download from the Workman website. Reminiscent of a cappella swing, it’s a celebration of the homey—of beauty in the eye of the beholder, of sunshine and fresh air, and a place to put up our hooves when the day is done. And, of course, the catching energy and rhythmic language of a beloved original:

We are all perfect piggies and we know what we need. It’s really very simple, very simple indeed: a troughful of food, a place in the sun, and a little bit of comfort when the day is done.

A perfect pairing, it combines Perfect Piggies!, a celebration of round noses and curly tails, floppy ears, and pleasing plumpness, with an adorable, huggable pink plush pig, the fuzzy embodiment of everything Perfect Piggies! stands for.

Little Brandon enjoys books, as always. We both love Sandra Boynton's books. Her stories are humorous and the illustrations are fun to look at. Brandon was excited that this book came with a cute toy that is just like the characters in the book. Of course, he can't read yet, but he likes to look at the pictures and have me read the stories to him. This would make a great gift for babies and kids.








About the Author

Sandra Boynton has been a bestselling Workman author for 25 years. She's written the New York Times bestseller Chocolate: The Consuming Passion,the national (and New York Times) bestselling musical for the whole family, Philadelphia Chickens, the phenomenally successful Boynton on Board series (led by Barnyard Dance!),and the one-of-a-kindGrunt, the sublime collection of Pigoroian chant. All told, her books have over 15.3 million copies in print, a number that will already be out-of-date when you read this. She lives with her family in western Connecticut.


INDESTRUCTIBLES

Vibrantly illustrated and impossible to destroy, INDESTRUCTIBLES are just for baby! These illustrated storybooks printed on paper-like, nontoxic material that can’t be ripped, torn, or punctured when in the hands and teeth of babies. Washable, foldable, and easily portable, these are a diaper bag must-have.

Indestructibles are the 100% 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. 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.


These books are great! Brandon occasionally rips my magazines, so I buy him board books. Indestructibles are indestructible and rip-proof. He enjoys looking at the pictures. Without any words to read, I tell him the stories and he would remember it by recognizing the pictures. And because there are no words, Mom and Dad are encouraged to make up their own stories around the pictures - perfect for parent-baby bonding.

The creators of Indestructibles are Amy Pixton, a mother of triplets, and her mother-in-law, Kaaren Pixton, an artist and children’s educator.
