Anybody who's ever watched a baby knows what will
happen with anything he gets his little hands on--he'll put it straight to his mouth! Books are no exception. In fact, paper seems to be a favorite material for chewing, crinkling, crunching, wrinkling, sucking on, and playing with. Unfortunately, paper books (even board books) can get soggy and come apart, not only destroying the book but becoming a potential choking hazard for baby. Don't you wish you could let your precious little one delight in exploring books the way she'd like?
Indestructibles™ was founded by a mother of triplets who quickly found that paper books, even "board books" are too easily turned to mush and can even be a choking hazard. Wishing to provide her children with a book that they could "read" as much as they wanted, she enlisted the help of Kaaren, who developed three working prototypes--three beautiful child-size picture books that were instant and enduring hits. In December 2009 the books will be released by Workman Publishing.
Indestructibles™ is a company with a groundbreaking product--books that babies can actually handle and "read" without being damaged! Indestructibles are printed on a special material, which has the properties of being soft and paper-like, yet waterproof and tear-resistant.
For babies, reading often looks more like chewing. By providing a book that can be "read" and easily handled, Indestructibles offers an alternative to traditional books, which are easily destroyed. All the while, babies are having fun and naturally developing essential motor and cognitive skills.
A book built for life deserves illustrations that are equally timeless. The vivid and alluring art of renowned children's artist Kaaren Pixton, is ideal because of her honed, yet always fresh approach, which is well proven in the world of children and education.
Indestructibles continues to strive to bring the world of reading and imagination to the very young – beginning when they are babies – by providing parents a product that is designed age-appropriately for infants' physical, social, and cognitive development.
