We got to check out all four titles in the Sofie La Girafe Board Book Collection.  I really love these multisensory type books for Keira, she tends to focus more and get more from the books than when I read a straight story.  The books in the collection currently include:  Peekaboo Sophie!, Colors, Let’s Get Counting, and Sophie’s Busy Day.

With fun flaps that open to reveal colorful pictures of Sophie la girafe and her friends, Peekaboo! Sophie la girafe: Peekaboo Sophie! invites children to their favorite game of peekaboo with their favorite toy.

Featuring simple text that encourages parent-child interaction, baby-appropriate touch-and-feel elements, and large appealing flaps for little hands to flip, this volume is a great opportunity to introduce babies to books, and to develop imagination, thinking, and memory skills.

Peekaboo Sophie! sets Keira off into fits of laughter.  She still loves playing Peekaboo so this was the clear favourite out of all four titles.  The touch and feel elements hiding behind the flaps just make it that much more fun for the both of us.  The flaps are also thick and large enough for Keira to flip over on her own.

Baby Touch and Feel: Sophie la girafe: Sophie’s Busy Day is an engaging touch-and-feel introduction to the world of Sophie la girafe.

Babies will love exploring and discovering different textures — from bumpy, scaly, sticky, and shiny — as Sophie la girafe interacts with them on the page, making this a perfect way for encouraging tiny fingers to explore and young minds to develop.

Sophie’s Busy Day features a short and sweet story that will hold your child’s attention thanks to the tactile elements on each page.  Our favourite page features some squishy red apples.  Keira loves to push on each apple one at a time every single time we get to that page in the book.

In this colorful board book, babies will be introduced to the world of numbers and counting with their favorite friend, Sophie la girafe.

Filled with bright, playful images of Sophie and her pals, as well as tactile tabs and lift-the-flap elements, My First: Sophie la girafe: Let’s Get Counting is ideal for encouraging early word and number recognition in young children.

This is a really cute and simple introduction to counting numbers.  I was surprised to find it went beyond just the basic 1-10.

  1. I love Sofie the Giraffe, my grandson had one when he was a baby. I’d never heard of them before that. I also like the touch and feel baby animals, really nice for babies.
