Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb (Bright & Early Board B&hellip by Al Perkins
We love this book, but we were disappointed to find out that the board book version is abridged. It's missing the "Hello Jack. Hello Jake. Shake hands, shake hands, shake shake shake." It's also missing the "Hello Jake. Hello Jack. Dum ditty, dum ditty, whack whack whack."

Otherwise, it's a good sturdy little book.
Doodle Stitching: Fresh and Fun Embroidery for Beg&hellip by Aimee Ray

I am new to free hand embroidery and thought this would be a good book to start with. I like the first 34 pages of the book very much, which explain the basics. However, I didn't find the projects to be very inspiring - I thought that they looked a bit amateurish. Also, I didn't like the patterns very much - they don't look at all like what is featured on the cover. At most, I would make maybe 2 of the items. Some of the projects include: a Sewing Circle Bag, Felt Forest Creatures, Songbird Wristlet, Bohemian Tunic, Cafe Apron, Spring Step Shoes, Crazy Curves Headband, Flower Shop Skirt, Boxer Shorts, Mod Napkins, Fireworks Halter Top, etc.

Melissa & Doug Farm Sound Puzzle by Melissa & Doug
I love the idea of this toy; however, I was really disappointed in the quality of it (unlike other Melissa and Doug products). The kitten worked great. After about half a day (of on and off play), the sheep stopped working. Then the duck, cow, dog and pig started making super short half sounds. Two hours later the sheep started working again but the rooster stopped working. So, I have had to return it.

It is also true, as another reviewer noted, the animals make sounds no matter which piece is dragged across it - the correct or the wrong one. So, it is not the best toy for learning animal sounds.
