Our library has a few of these Clive books and I love them so much. Ravioli is verrrrrrry into hats, so that’s why I picked up the first one. But they’re so sweet! I love the cat that appears in them, too.

Looking for recommendations. Mo LOVES alpha bugs. It’s a pop-up book. Problem is she’s grabby and tends to accidentally tear the bugs out.

We’re getting copies of the book but are there any books that may have similar appeal with less destructability?

Tbh destruction is part of the book love learning. Maybe get some Karen Kratz lift the flap books that are easier to repair and see if they also appeal with interactiveness. But some destruction is just curiosity embodied :sweat_smile:

I don’t know that one specificially but there’s a series called things like “Look, it’s woof woof dog” where the flaps are made out of felt so they don’t tear so much!

Agree wtih @Bracken_Joy that this is normal behavior and part of the process but I get it, it can feel stressful!

Yes we have some felt flap ones and Ravioli loves them! There’s this one and also a T-Rex one

Has anyone come across a book for toddlers that introduces the concept of boys and girls but is LGBTQ positive? I feel like this is vocabulary that the cuckoo needs but I don’t want to be, like all deterministic about it. She’s almost 2.
