Indestructible Nursery Rhyme Book Set

Tear- and drool-proof, these washable baby books are filled with beautiful nursery rhyme imagery.

$28.00

Baby-Proofed Books

Babies aren't always the sweet, gentle creatures they are perceived to be. Especially when books are involved.

With IndestructiblesTM, however, babies and books can peacefully co-exist. These books are built for the way babies 'read': with their eyes as well as their hands and mouths! As the name suggests, these virtually indestructible and undeniably cute books are made from the same paper-like material used in shipping envelopes, which means it's 100% baby-proof: chew-proof, drool-proof, and rip-proof. Not only will these books resist tearing and gummy mouths, but they’re also completely washable! Made in China.

Featuring energetic, colorful and beautiful paintings of classic nursery rhymes in exotic locales by Jonas Sickler, these simple and lovely books are completely visual and have no words throughout the story (they appear only on the back cover), which allows for plenty of imaginative storytelling from mom or dad. Indestructibles are intentionally wordless in order to encourage dialogic reading, or "natural conversation," between parent and baby. Dialogic helps an infant develop early literacy skill such as phonological awareness, vocabulary and narrative skills.

Set of five includes: 
- Frere Jacques
- Hickory Dickory Dock
- Old Macdonald Had a Farm
- Mary Had a Little Lamb- Humpty Dumpty

Ages
0+

Notes
Printed on a synthetic material made from non-toxic, flashspun high-density polyethylene fibers. It feels like paper, but liquid water cannot pass through it and it is very difficult to tear.

These are very pretty and unique. They were thinner than I expected and could almost be seen as cheaply made, but then you must remember they are like that because the material is made for babies and is therefore soft and flimsy but "indestructable". I had failed to notice in the product description that there are no words in the stories, but then again, babies don't read.... :)
I gave them to my sister-in-law for her 11 month old and she said she was going to order a set for her sister's baby.

Where's the Story!

What a shame the author didn't put words on each page... sure we all know these rhymes, but really, how hard would it have been to have included words???

These books are amazing! Our daughter sucked on them, chewed on them, our dog even got a hold of one and they didn't rip or tear. Washing is a breeze to clean and sterilize.

Comments about UncommonGoods Indestructible Nursery Rhyme Book Set:

These books are very durable.
I love this concept of making up the stories, using different cultures but with familiar rhymes. It is a great way to inspire imagination, language and new ideas.

The illustrations are too busy, there is just a lot going on which can be distracting.
That said, it makes a great and unique baby shower gift.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Indestructible Nursery Rhyme Book Set:

    It's nice to have an indestructible book alternative to board books since they take up so much space on a shelf. These were much more compact than anticipated but they will be great for throwing in a diaper bag or leaving in a car. Also works for the new baby plus his older brother, who's 3. May be buying these for EVERYONE!

        I chose this as a gift for my niece's newborn twins. The new grandmother, a children's librarian, was there when they arrived and loved them. They'll suit the girls for years, as their format lends itself to all kinds of storytelling in addition to the nursery rhymes. And she says they truly are indestructible.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Indestructible Nursery Rhyme Book Set:

          Great for little ones starting to explore (6 - 12 months). If your baby loves to grab at magazines and books, this is the perfect substitute. The pictures are bright and engaging! I had one for my kids and gifted this set to a friend's newborn. They're chewable, washable, and have lasted us through two kids. The material is like Tyvek, but thicker, and of course non-toxic. The books will get creased and crinkled over time, but the colors stay vibrant. Note that these aren't 'story' books; instead they have one word descriptions of the pictures and feature colorful illustrations.
