I absolutely love this child's book! When I read it to my grandson, he always says, "Again!" So I purchased it to give to my son's father-in-law whose name is Bob -- 14 of the 15 animals are named Bob! I got it for him to read to his first grandchild due to be born in a month. The last page and 15th animal is a delightful surprise! The grandchildren to whom I have read this love to help read it by saying "Bob" when I point to the animals. It is also a good counting book for children to learn their numbers.

This cozy book about a bear asleep in his den while other animals come in to warm up by a fire with popcorn and tea is a sweet tale with lots of rhyming and word alliteration. A bit tongue-twistery, but fun to read.

I purchased this item for my grandson, who is only five weeks old. However, it is soft and cuddly so that when I can read the book to him and let him feel the pages, I think he will enjoy it.

My grandson is 20 months and loves animals. I thought this book would be perfect - the pictures are. The vocabulary is for an older 'kid' though. Definitely will 'grow into' this book.

This book contains a charming series of photographs of animals . Each double spread includes a full page photograph that is accompanied by a sentence or phrase on the opposite page: a white squirrel sniffs a small owl and the text says, "Are you a friend?" A stone marten climbs a dog's head to sniff his nose and framed on the opposite page are the words, "Something just tells me we are going to get along." The concluding pages introduce the author, and identify the animals pictured in the delightful photographs. These would make perfect greeting cards since the sentiments and photographs are so cute. A heartwarming book for my valentine,

I feel like this is the best of the Farmer Brown books, the most entertaining. My grandson loves the funny snoring sounds of the animals and the way I sing the words when the animals do. After 2 years it still makes him laugh.

This book is great. It is a board book, so it is super sturdy. The sound quality is good - the animal sounds are actual animal recordings. My kids love to lift the flaps themselves to hear the noises.

My 4 year old and I laugh out loud each time we read this book. It is about some farm animals who get bored with the regular animal food they are fed daily. They come up with some Mexican food alternatives. This book is a great find!

Newborn gifts range from the useful and practical to the whimsical and luxurious. When selecting a baby gift for a newborn, you may be wondering how to choose something unique that won't be like all the other presents at a baby shower. To find the best newborn baby gift, consider what you know about the baby and the lifestyle of the parents and consider gifts that the parents truly want. Toys. Baby toys always make good gifts for newborns. Even if the toys won't be played with right away, parents can use them to provide stimulatory experiences and items such as rattles, stuffed animals, soft blocks and musical mobiles all provide the developing baby with learning opportunities. Books. Children can never have too many books. Reading to and with a little one can help them develop language skills and imaginative qualities. Many parents start reading to baby from day one and find that it is a valuable bonding experience. Any baby book with a simple, clean layout, contrasting visuals and short, straightforward text makes a good choice. Look for touch-and-feel books, pop-up books and books with mirrors, which are all fun for babies. Blankets. Keep baby warm and comfortable with a soft blanket. A luxury blanket made of cashmere or silk can be a nice change from other gifts and will probably become a family treasure. Blankets that have been embroidered with the baby's name or initials are also a unique newborn baby gift. Baby blankets that have been folded into the shape of a cake or other decorative item are fun to give on their own or as part of a gift basket. Larger items. Many parents find that they simply can't afford to purchase all of the baby gear that they really want. If you are looking for a newborn baby gift that will impress, then you might consider purchasing a larger item, such as a swing, a rocking chair or a video baby monitor. Surprise the mom-to-be in your group of friends with something she has been wanting by gifting something expensive with several other people.

The hobo handbag comes in many different sizes, but it is never considered bulky or oversized.

The longer strap allows the bag to rest against the hip when you drape it over your shoulder. Leather shoulder bags can be found in soft suede or top-grain leather. Clutch. The small, hand-held leather clutch may also be referred to as a coin purse. Just large enough to hold your daily essentials -- a little cash, identification, a credit card or two, cell phone and a tube of lipstick -- the clutch is perfect for short trips to the store or a special evening out.
