Creep! Crawl! and Plip-Plop Pond! are chew proof, rip proof and washable!


Creep! Crawl!

Plip-Plop Pond!


Board Books

Ages Birth to 2

By Kaaren Pixton

6 pages

Workman Publishing



These books truly are indestructible, which in this case is defined as chew proof and rip proof. My one-year old niece has put quite a lot of effort into trying to destroy and/or eat these books to no avail. And really, that’s how most infants, and many toddlers, “read” books.

The books are made of a smooth, thick, woven paper, much like those soft FedEx envelopes; the pages are sewn together so no staples to worry about either. Besides being durable, they’re nontoxic and washable. Seriously. You can just throw them in the washing machine or dishwasher.

Creep! Crawl! and Plip-Plop Pond! are wordless, as are most of the books in this series. The art seems to be a mix of cut paper and paint and is colorful, engaging and lively.

Creep! Crawl! features various insects and animals that creep and crawl. There’s a bright green grasshopper atop a vibrant pile of fall leaves, a very happy worm slithering across rich, varicolored dirt and a fiery centipede with black stripes sliding over emerald leaves.

Plip-Plop Pond! introduces your baby to the inhabitants of a pond by way of a happy, waving frog. He passes by some salamanders, visits a crane and stops to admire a dragonfly with a sunbathing turtle.

The main action is given away in each of the titles (see below). I think they’re all worth owning. They’re an excellent introduction into the world of books for your littlest readers. They’ll also make a great gift for that person you know who just had a baby.

Wiggle! March!

Flutter! Fly!

Jungle Rumble!
