Review: Crinkly Books of Aussie Animals

Once in a while, books come along that are so good, they make me want to have another baby. I know!! Yes, that's how much I love these books--the 'Crinkly' series by artist Jill Brailsford.

These soft, tremendously tactile books pack an auditory punch, with crinkle-lined pages creating a delicious, understated racket when baby grabs the page. Featuring a palette of pure black and white, the silhouetted images are ideal for baby's eye development--and will totally engage and stimulate tiny brains.

There are four books to choose from, all featuring adorable Aussie animals--from the bush, the ocean, the outback and the nest.

A gorgeous way to introduce wee ones to our native fauna, this collection would also make a wonderful gift for overseas newborns (nice and light to post, too!).

Creative, beautifully-crafted, with two words of text per page, this is true baby bliss--in monochrome. Graphic design lovers over the age of 18 months will find themselves in a similarly blissful state.
