123 Boston

123-boston.jpgWe're big into books in my house, and though we'll reuse Laurel's well loved (read: residually slobbery) books when the baby arrives, I always love learning about cool new kids titles. Such was the case with 123 Boston: A Cool Counting Book. This board book is a perfect gift for young Bostonians (or relocated members of Boston Nation), including bold, contrasting graphics that will catch baby's attention while appropriately representing iconic elements of our city and history in chic colorways. And OK, I'll admit it: I was happy that I correctly identified each of the 10 images before looking at the description legend in the back of the book -- a good sign for this Boston lifer as well as for Kevin Somers, the talented illustrator of this book. See if you can too. The 123 board book concept is also available for a select number of other locales.
