It feels like a long time since I bought baby books; a long time since I found myself in the board book section at Chapters. Taking my time, agonizing over choices: favourite author? favourite story? because board books are such a great gift. The funny thing is, new mothers think that the books are sturdy for those chubby little fingers to turn page after page in rapt enjoyment. Parents of more than one (and, heaven forbid, boys) know that there is only the hope that since they can’t get ripped, that they won’t get chewed…at least not too badly!
And should you find yourself in the board book section of Chapters, I can highly recommend Sandra Boynton, and any of the Jan Brett series. Should you be needing a hand-knit white bunny to accompany the books, well, that’s entirely another story!
