Reading to your baby is not only a fun shared activity but it also provides many benefits to your child. It teaches your baby about language and communication, provides visual and cognitive stimulation with colorful pages (or black and white for newborn age), and promotes bonding as your baby is comforted with the familiar sound of your voice. Organic fabric storybooks are an essential item for your child’s toy collection as he/she can enjoy reading the all natural books but also can teethe on them whenever he/she pleases. Too many times have I seen a child teething on what once was a once board book now with pages soggy and withered. This is a non-toxic option for your child that can be washed and played with infinitely. There are few organic storybooks on the market at this time but the books I have found seem to be of great quality and have colorful pages for baby to enjoy.
This Etsy shop creates a variety of adorable fabric books including nature, dinosaur, and fruit themes and more, with vibrant pictures on each page. The shop even creates custom books with your chid’s name. The books are made of 100% organic cotton fabric and batting as well as being printed with eco-friendly, water-based pigment inks. Books measure 6″ by 6″ and are machine washable.
This organic cloth book for baby has simple illustrations and bright colors. It has a blank panel inside the front cover where you can write a message using a fabric pen. It is printed with water-based inked and sewn with organic cotton thread. Padding is made from natural cotton or bamboo fabric. You also have the option to add “crinkle plastic” which is made from recycled cereal box plastic. Machine washable for use over and over again!
