Hawaii Mom Blog: Cutting Loose with ABCs and 123s

Cutting Loose with ABCs and 123s

Disclosure: Complimentary product was received for review purposes. All opinions are entirely my own

I think I've said this before, but I'll never say no to new books for E. Whether it's books that he might love or ones that are gifted. But especially books that remind him of his real home, in Hawaii.

So when offered "123 Cut Loose in Hawai'i" and "A to Z Cut Loose in Hawai'i" we happily accepted.

The board books are designed by Oahu resident Andrew Imamura, a self-taught Kiri-e (Japanese art of paper cutting), printmaker and illustrator. The books are a reflection of his roots and the people, places and common sights in Hawaii--from honu or sea turtles to pua'a or wild pigs. E loves identifying objects right now, especially animals, so it's a lot of fun to ask him to identify and count the mo'o (lizards) or myna bird. Honestly, the only issue I had was that "x" was for "extra-sharp." Hmmmmmm. 

You can purchase both books on Amazon for $8.95. 

Because both books were just published this past September there is a good chance others won't have them yet, so will make a great gift or stocking stuff for friends and family with littles. I personally like book gifts because you can never have too many books (whereas you can definitely have too many toys!).
