Picture Book Review: Indestructibles: Let’s Go Outside! and Let’s Be Kind

by Ekaterina Trukhan (Author) (Illustrations),Amy Pixton (Creator)

5 out of 5 stars

Let’s Go Outside – This book takes the reader on an outdoor adventure where we can stretch up like a tree, swim like a fish, and buzz like a bee. The writing is very simple, and just right for babies and toddlers learning their first words. I love that each page shows a parent and their child having fun in the forest or by the ocean.

As the parents and children explore the outdoors, there are little animals peeking out from behind the trees or swimming in the water. The little snails, turtles, frogs, and butterflies are so cute! There are birds, bunnies, and baby foxes too! So adorable!

Let’s Be Kind – This book teaches babies and toddlers about basic manners, saying please and thank you, and sharing toys with others. The writing is very simple, and just right for babies and toddlers learning their first words.

I love that the characters are parents, older children, and babies. They play together, do chores together, work in the garden, give baby a bath in the sink, and always say goodnight with hugs and kisses. This book also features a biracial family!

BOTH Books -The illustrations are bright and colorful, with a cartoony style and simple designs. It’s the details in the background of each scene that make this book really special.

The books really do appear to be indestructible. I tried tearing one of the pages, and it wouldn’t tear, although it crinkled up a little. I was surprised that the pages are so thin. This is NOT a board book. The pages are made of some kind of thick fiber, and there is no cover or spine. The pages are sewn together into a thin booklet. No wonder they say that babies could chew on it, and it is washable. Without a cover for babies to chew on, and no spine to get torn, these books really are indestructible!
