The Walt Disney Mickey and Friends Book Block boxed set of board books was the first gift we were given when I found out I was expecting my son.
The set contains 10 small hard board books that are aprox. 3 x 3 inches and each box has 6 pages. It looks like there are more pages in each book because each page is really thick. The books are the perfect size for little baby hands to hold and thick enough that when they chew on them there is no way little mouths can bite off any parts of them. Each book has a different theme like shapes, the five senses, opposites, music makers, art fun, on the farm, first words, counting, on the go and colors. The books all feature Mickey Mouse and some of his friends along with colorful pictures and a few short sentences that tell a small story. All the box store away easily in the box which makes a nice display on a shelf.
My son and I spent countless hours reading and playing with these books from the time he was very small up until he could read them on his own. Even though they are small and short, they managed to both teach and entertain him at the same time. They took alot of abuse over the years and are still holding together well. I am a strong believer that reading to a child early in their life is one of the best gifts you can give them. I read to both my children and they are both excellent at reading and are reading several grades above their grade levels and enjoy doing it with out being asked. These are a great set of books to start your child on the path to reading success and they make a great gift to give someone as well.
