I read this one during Blanket Storytime and it was a lot of fun, my only thing that makes me sad is that I can't get this book in a regular picture book edition! Only board book!

Iloinen vauva, jolla on oma riepu. Ei kai se vauvakirja muuta tarvitse.

I HAVE A BLANKIE!!! This book is kind of long for my attention span right now, but mom and dad seem to like it (they say it's funny because it's like it's about me and my blankie). Maybe I'll like it more when I'm a little older.

11/2 - dad read this to me because mom stayed out late with her friend.
11/25 - bedtime story

I read this book over and over and over again on a daily basis. The illustrations are simple and basic but very sweet and colorful. If your baby loves books, these are great because they're easy to understand and might even teach your little one something.

This book was cute but after reading it Abby decided she needed to carry her blanket around everywhere like a baby for a few weeks which was annoying. The book doesn't exactly set a good example although I guess if your kid is already obsessed with a blanket it's not bad.

This book shows that it is alright to have a bond with things. This is a book that most children can related to because there is usually one aspect or another that corresponds to the relationship a child has with an object.

Sweet simple and expressive of childhood.

I love these books. Patricelli's illustrations are adorable and the topics true to age. Older toddlers will enjoy watching the baby while understanding exactly how baby feels:)

Also cute, and also accurate. These are books written by someone who clearly has children (sometimes you wonder).

We haven't read any of this author's books to my under 2 aged granddaughter that she doesn't ask to read again and again. She is saying a lot of the words, too!

Maybe it's because I have a blankie lover, but I just loved this book! Bold, clean illustrations. Simple story and a quick read.

Not for the reread pile as it is too much of a day in the life of obsessive behavior. I wouldn't want to induce sudden blankie obsession around here.

Super cute and perfect for little people who love their blankies (or bears, or puppies, or bunnies, or whatever).

Jacob and I both love the illustrations and cute stories in all of Patricelli's books.

I really love Leslie Patricelli's sense of humor. Sidenote: my library's copy of this board book has one random upside-down spread.

These books are so much fun for my son and I to read together. Even though he can't read yet, I have so much fun reading her books to my son.

Owen's favorite book, he nods his head with every page, like "yeah, that's right, finally someone understands"
unfortunately, his blankie days are numbered....

We read this once & that's enough. I am wary of reinforcing the reliance on one item for security. If it happens, okay, but I am not going to foster it.
