Panda Pals – Book Review 

This week’s book review is of Panda Pals, another concept book with few words. On the front is a large panda with bright eyes and a head that can be felt and squished by little baby hands.

The book is rated for 0 months +, however, I just received it in my December Bluum box, along with two toys that were part of his Christmas stocking and a pair of unusual booties.

Each page features a black and white picture of an animal on a colorful background. This provides contrast for the baby and helps direct them towards the animal. The name of each animal is printed under the picture.

We put the book in front of William. Despite demonstrating it to him, he had no interest in feeling the Panda head on the cover. He did briefly touch the pages.

He showed much more interest in the book when Matt read to him the name of the animals and let him look at the pictures

The back of the book has suggestions on how to use the book effectively and use it to spark other games and activities that can be done throughout the home. These demonsrate how three senses of touch, hearing, and seeing can all be used to appreciate the book and activities stemming from it.

The book has many ways to engage the baby from a young age. The parent can use his or her imagination to bond with the child and be helping them learn at the same time.

Rating – five baby booties out of five
