AMMO Winter Kids Releases Review

David is a serious little reader already.  Even though he's only 17 months old he usually prefers for Mommy or Daddy to read him a book to anything else!  It's not unusual for him to grab book after book off "his" bookshelf and bring them over to one of us to read to him.  Now he's getting to the point where he'll just sit down with a book and "read" to himself (which is my favorite, so cute!).

When we received the latest book from AMMO, ABC IS FOR CIRCUS by Patrick Hruby, David was so excited! It's full of bright colors, fun illustrations, and it's also educational!  He just sat there for a while pointing at the pictures saying "Ooooo" over and over again!

Here's a brief description from their site:

ABC IS FOR CIRCUS celebrates the colorful and festive world of the circus through each letter of the alphabet. Young children will enjoy memorizing letters and words like A is for Acrobats, B is for Big Top, and C is for Calliope in this imaginative chunky board book. ABC IS FOR CIRCUS is an awesome addition to our artist-centric line of ABC books and is sure to delight an audience of children and adults alike.

We also received the Charley Harper Nesting Blocks and I had NO idea how much David would love them!  As soon as I pulled them out of the box, he started clapping.  Then I sat on the floor and stacked them up, of course he immediately knocked them over and was VERY proud of himself!  Then he started trying to nest them back all by himself and actually did a pretty good job.  I can already tell this set of Nesting Blocks is becoming a fast favorite.

The only thing that concerns me is if he discovers the areas on the corners where the paper comes together, he loves to rip things, but hopefully he won't figure that he could probably peel the paper off the boxes fairly easily ;)

These are super cute blocks and I love that they are covered in letters, numbers and words so David can learn as he plays!

Here's a brief description from their site:
Charley Harper’s whimsical and well-loved illustrations are featured here on this classic set of nesting blocks. The alphabet and numbers 1 through 10 are expressed with Charley’s colorful animal illustrations that wrap around the surface of each of the 10 nesting blocks. When completely stacked, the blocks stand almost 3 feet tall, and when they nest, they become a compact 6 x 6 x 6 inches square. These CHARLEY HARPER NESTING BLOCKS are interactive, decorative, and a great addition to the existing line of Charley Harper books and toys for kids. Perfect for brightening any nursery room!
