Cut Out Board Books

cut out board books

How cute are these cut out board books?  They are done by one of my favorite illustrators Ingela Arrhenius whose illustrations are simple, colorful and invoke the aesthetics of the 1950s.

I just adore how the pages are shaped like the museum exhibits or the foliage.  Pages are sturdy but the edges may split in the grasp of over-eager hands.  However, I think that means that a book was just really loved.  A fair trade-off for the more interesting structure of these books.

There is some sophisticated vocabulary in the Museum book, while the Seasons book relies on more basic concepts.  These are short but there is plenty to digest in the illustrations and talk about with kids.  They are absolutely fun additions to any little library.
