I was given 4 Sophie la girafe Baby Books to facilitate this review, opinions expressed are that of my own.
DK Publishing asked if I would be interested in reviewing 4 of the first Sophie la girafe baby books here on Frugal and Fun Mom. Since the books are for children ages 0-3 I thought this would be a great collection for my 13 month old son to check out.
Inspired by Sophie la girafe, these books are based on the natural rubber baby teether that has sold over 50 million units worldwide since it was first produced in France in 1961.
A few days later, I received four board titles including:
• My First: Sophie la girafe® : Let’s Get Counting ($5.99)
• Peekaboo! Sophie la girafe ®: Peekaboo Sophie! ($6.99)
• Baby Touch and Feel: Sophie la girafe ®: Sophie’s Busy Day ($5.99)
• Baby: Sophie la girafe ®: Colors ($6.99)
Ironically when the package arrived the person most drawn to these books was my 4 almost 5-year-old daughter, she immediately recognized Sophie from a friends toy. Together, she and her brother sat down in the living room and started checking them out.
Just seeing my daughter’s reaction to this series is really exciting because she is interested in the characters. There is Sophie of course, but there is also Lazare the cat, Gabin the bear, Josephine the mouse, Margot the turtle, and Kiwi the bird. Since they are present in each of the books she recognizes them and is intrigued by the stories. He favorite is the Sophie la girafe: Let’s Get Counting. It goes up to 100 and she was amazed at such a BIG number.
My daughter has taken them to show her grandparents and has wanted me to tell her the name of the characters so she could “read” the books. My little guy has been looking them at as well, mostly putting them in his mouth at this point, but there is definitely some competition with his sister to get a hold of them. It is so cute.
From an educational aspect, I like the textures in Peekaboo Sophie, and the Baby Touch and Feel Sophie’s Busy Day. These are definitely books that will grow with my son, that is after his sister decides to put them down. I look forward to teaching my little guy his colors and numbers with Sophie la girafe : Colors and My First: Sophie la girafe: Let’s Get Counting.
