Description

Explore the big city in a book that’s indestructible!
 
Traffic’s zooming by—rumble, honk, beep!
Construction workers are building—thud, rattle, clank!
People are in the park—running, strolling, playing!

 
Indestructibles is the trusted series for easing little ones into story time. Beloved by babies and their parents, Indestructibles are built for the way babies “read” (i.e., with their hands and mouths) and are:
  • Rip Proof—made of ultra-durable tight-woven material
  • Waterproof—can be chewed on, drooled on, and washed!
  • Emergent Literacy Tool—bright pictures and few or no words encourage dialogic reading
  • Portable—lightweight books can go anywhere, perfect for the diaper bag and for travel
  • Safe for Baby—meets ASTM safety standards

Praise For Indestructibles: Busy City

"Vibrant color, diverse people, and assorted sounds welcome infants and toddlers to the metropolis."–Kirkus Reviews
 
"While mom and dad might love the closeness of story time, they surely don't love the ripped pages that come from reading to a curious infant. These tear-, bite-, and spit-proof books have the slimness of a paperback and the durability of a board book."–RealSimple
