This is an ideal gift for the friend who shops at the farmer’s market, loves all things organic and is expecting a baby in the near future. Our pals at Wee Gallery have recently released three new 100% organic soft books. Each handmade book opens to reveal black and white images of gardens, jungles and animals.

If your little one likes to chew on books a little more than read them at this point, rest assured with the knowledge that this product does not contain any harmful ingredients. Babies love the simple images and parents enjoy making up stories to go with the images. Tip: for parents who struggle with what to read to an infant: this is it! Newborns are most interested in looking at their parents’ faces (of course) and simple black and white geometric images. You can save “Cat in the Hat” for later.

Wee Gallery is a family business, run by graphic designer, Surya Pinto and teacher, Dave Pinto. Husband and wife work together on each design, even letting their little ones draft the illustrations. Siddu, 8, and Anya, 5, create many versions of each image and Mom and Dad pick the best ones. Check out Wee Gallery’s site to see their other awesome earth-friendly products such as art cards, mobiles, wall graphics, tattoos, books, rubber stamps, letterpress and blank greeting cards. Each item is designed with childhood development from zero to five in mind. And, they just plain look pretty cute too.
