It turns out, there is a company called Workman that publishes a line of books called Indestructibles. And that's what they are. Literally indestructible. These books look and feel like paper, so babies think they are getting away with something when they get their sticky little paws on these books. But when they go to rip it, bite it, tear it, shake it, drool on it, spill water all over it, NOTHING HAPPENS.
These books are Non-toxic, Rip-proof, Tear-proof, and Water-Proof. And now they are Harper-Proof. I actually tried ripping the book myself and I couldn't do it.
They have a line of books, so there are many to choose from. However, before you buy them, realize that most of them are wordless, even the nursery rhymes. Wordless books are totally fine, but if you were expecting words, don't.
They do have four books that have words and Harper loves these.
Baby Peekaboo and Baby Night Night have sentences and phrases. Baby Babble is more of a labeling book. And Baby Faces simply has one word on each page. Below are a few pages from Baby Faces.
As you can see, they all have super cute illustrations.
These books are definitely Mommy and Harper approved!
