A Book of Cloth

I have mentioned before that Baby A's favorite book is a soft book about a little monster finding her friend, with crunchy leaves under the sea, a bee hiding behind a flower...who wouldn't love this?

And the sweetest soft book I've ever seen is the one my mom made, featuring the cutest baby ever and her curious/confused expressions:

When I was a baby (I like to compare things to when I was a baby, especially when I watch a one-year-old I know independently view photos on a touch-screen phone)
I had a soft book, too:

Above is Baby A reading the now vintage book Hauva my mom saved just in case a grandchild would like to see a puppy's favorite activities in bright colors on soft cloth pages one Tuesday afternoon of the future.

I haven't found any soft books older than this, and the text on the back cover (below) makes me think they were a cool new trend of the 1980s that continues today. Maybe people were making their own before publishing companies caught on?

What soft books do you read?

  1. October should be much higher on your list, since that is my birthday and also Halloween. Also, Fall is the best month, followed by Summer, Spring and then Winter.


It makes my day to hear your insights, input, and friendly opinion!
