Introducing the Brand New Board Book Series for Babies by DK Publishing -- Sophie la girafe -- Review and #Giveaway

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the publisher in order to write up an honest review.  The views shared are mine and mine alone.






"An ideal gift for new parents - Babies will love exploring and discovering different textures—from bumpy, scaly, sticky, and shiny—as  Sophie la girafe interacts with them on the page, making this a perfect way for encouraging tiny fingers to explore and young minds to develop."

If you have babies or teething toddlers, then you have probably seen or even purchased the Sophie la girafe toy/teether.  I was given one as a baby shower gift for Savannah, and ended up buying another one when we found out we were expecting Arabella.  And, whenever I get invited to a baby shower, this is one must have item I pick up and include with my gift, as I personally know how great Sophie la girafe is.  I know I am not alone in thinking this, as most of my family and friends with young children own one to. :-)

So, when I was recently contacted and told about a fun new board book series, featuring Sophie la Girafe, I couldn't resist this review opportunity.  You all know how important reading to your child, including babies is.  And, this fun new series, is definitely one worth checking out and picking up.  Arabella is almost 2 years old, while Savannah just turned 3 yrs. old in July, and both can't get enough of each of the four books in the Sofie la girafe series from DK Publishing. 

Here is more about each of the books, which are great to share with babies and toddlers, that will help introduce them to different textures, numbers, colors and more.

Sophie la girafe: Colors

"Packed with bright, lively pictures, and large, simple text, all the colors of the rainbow come alive in this board book, Baby: Sophie la girafe: Colors.

An ideal gift for new parents, this book will stimulate children's recognition of objects, as well as encourage talking and naming skills."


Like I said, my daughters love these books, and can't put them down.  I love watching Savannah try to read each of the books to Bella.  Even though she can't read, she uses her imagination to come up with a fun story.  She even tries to teach her little sister colors, numbers and even shows here where to touch the textures areas on each page, as she tells her what she is feeling.  Savannah is such a great Mommy's helper and big sister.  These books have helped her learn how to count beyond 10.  Now, she can count to 20, 50 and is working on counting to 100 thanks to the Sophie la girafe®: Let’s Get Counting.  You should see how proud she gets when she shows off her counting skills to my husband or I, as well as other family and friends. :-)

These new Sofie la girafe board books from DK Publishing would make for a great baby shower gift.  Even though I don't know anyone else having a baby soon, I know that when I get my next baby shower invite I will be creating a Sophie la girafe themed basket, including each of these books, as well as the popular Sophie la girafe toy. :-)  These books would even make great stocking stuffer gifts for the upcoming holiday season for babies and toddlers, too!
