In the board book Cozy, Snowy Cuddles, a baby polar bear visits a child and parent pair (narwhals, huskies, seals, moose) on each two page spread, and returns to its parents, accompanied by a text that emphasizes different expressions of love and comfort. Each pair includes a differently textured insert, mainly furs, for a tactile interaction with the story that begins with the snow’s applied texture on the cover. The final text includes thanking God for cozy kisses as the baby polar bear rejoins its parents in the same illustration as the cover.
The storyline is simple and pleasant, if a bit uninspired, and should hold up to the multiple readings it’s target audience sometimes demands. The book itself appears well made, and it should also hold up well to the gnawing that board books often endure.
This is a sweet board book to enjoy with the babies, toddlers, and preschoolers in your life this winter, and a fun way to get in extra cuddles, snuggles, and nuzzles.
Great-Aunt approved and very gift-able. I’m looking forward to sharing it with the little ones in my life (whose number grew by one this past week).
