Just B: Made in USA Board Book Review

 Print

Here’s the message I received from Melody, the Mama behind the book: “Thank you for providing a website dedicated to safe products for children made in the USA.  When my son was born I was very disappointed that almost all of the board books we purchased were manufactured and printed in China.  Thankfully one day while playing with my son, I had an ‘ah-ha’ moment and was inspired to write a board book and have it manufactured and printed in the USA.” That’s one thing I love about the people who bring a made in USA product into a reality. They had an ‘ah-ha’ moment one day, and they made that moment into a reality, for the benefit of all of us who hold similar values!

About the book: “Just B was created with those short attention spans in mind. The illustrations are bright, simple, and each page displays one object a baby may recognize on a daily basis, all that begin with the letter “B”. It’s a perfect first book to add to your baby’s library. Just B is printed in the United States by Pint Size Productions in Sanborn, New York. Every product complies with the CPSIA and ASTM safety testing requirements to ensure everything is safe in those adorable little hands.”

I agree, it is a perfect book for the youngest kiddos who are just beginning to be able to identify the world around them. It has very bright, bold pages with familiar objects for most babe’s. My 3 year old really enjoys being able to name objects, she really likes this book a lot! And of course, I absolutely love knowing that hard work & determination led to it being printed in NY, not China.

About Melody: “One day while playing with different consonants with my 6 month old son, I noticed many items he interacted with the first few months of life began with the letter “B”. I believed “B” was a great consonant to work with because it was easy for many babies to pronounce. It was then that I thought a great first book for babies would be one with illustrations of all the “B” items. Since then, one of my son’s favorite things to say is “Bah Bah Bah”. Enjoy and have fun making connections in the never ending learning process with your little ones. I am a mom to my amazing son, Garrison; wife to my wonderful husband, Rick; an avid yogi and planet earth lover. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Ecology and am presently writing my second children’s book inspired by my family and love of nature.”

I hope you’ll agree that supporting small businesses dedicated to keeping production of their product here in the USA is worth your vote with a purchase. This would be a great gift for a new Mom if you kiddos are past this stage of life. Thank you!
