About the Author
Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification―in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator. His first job in children's books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became Creative Director of DK's Children's Division and was Managing Director of the children's mass market publisher Funfax when it was acquired by DK.
In 2000, he created Priddy Books with John Sargent at St Martin's Press to create innovative and imaginative titles for children, from first books for babies through early reference titles for older children. Since then, over 30 million copies of Roger's 200 plus books have sold worldwide, with five of his books―My Big Animal, My Big Truck, Happy Baby Words, Happy Baby Colors and Puppy and Friends―each selling over one million copies. He is also the author of Big Board First 100 Words; Big Board Books Colors, ABC, Numbers; and Bright Baby Noisy Monsters. His creativity has been recognized with numerous industry awards. Priddy lives in London with his wife Zena and their four children.

They're inexpensive enough that he can gum them and dribble on them all day and night. He's practicing turning the bright coloured pages with his slobber covered mitts, all while getting a bit of sensory play. Essentially we're using it as a double operative chew toy, secretly instilling a love of reading in him. They'll likely be destroyed before he even learns how to speak, but by then the secret mission will already be completed.
A lot of these amazon reviews talk about the touch and feel areas being too small, but dang, these books are $5! If you want a book that's completely covered in fur from top to bottom, then you're just going to have to pay for such a luxury.
I purchased this again for another toddler and they seem to thoroughly enjoy it.
The zoo one is nice, I like puppies though so you might have to go for another one based on your child's preferences.
(Then again, if you're really trying to save money, you could probably find these same books at your local thrift store as I believe it's a common gift for young ones and as they grow out of it, they're often tossed off to the donation box)
I bought 1 at Easter when he was 7 months old and now he is 10 months old and we own 3. He loves the different textures and looks for them on every book. I 100% recommend as a first book for babies. 👶

a book you must buy for your children, they will love it!
I wanted to buy this book because my son is a toddler and it's very interactive as they learn to touch the fur or other textures of the animals.
I love the size because you can actually keep them anywhere. We will try to complete the full collection.
