We happened to come across this baby board book about a year ago at the library one day as it was sitting on top of the toddler book shelf. Since then we have checked this book out 6 times, paid the book's worth in fines and kept if for the maximum 3 month period twice. My daughter absolutely loves this book and we are finding that we are going to have to finally break down and purchase it. The scene she made the last time we tried to return it confirmed this. (The nice librarian rechecked it out to us again after we had already had it for 3 months).

The artwork isn't anything amazing but the colors are bright and vibrant. The story is written in short sentences for children around 1-2 but my 3 year old won't put it down. She can tell the entire story now just by looking at the pictures.

It's a story about baby and blankie. Everywhere baby goes blankie goes, fun places not so fun places and everything baby does blankie does too. My daughter finds the story very reassuring as it deals with being afraid of the dark and blankie helping the baby to overcome it; much like her own lovey that I'll get to reviewing eventually.

I recommend this book for parents of young toddlers and it's great for grandparents too. Blankie is a bonding book I can assure you you'll be reading over and over again.
