Ever since realizing Sofia could flip pages, I know I should get her more books. When you have a baby, you tend to appreciate even the tiniest of achievements. She used to only bite the books, but recently she has started flipping pages. Still biting at times but well, it's a start.
Apa? Beli je online? Well, I already did. I bought a cloth book for about RM11.88 at Lazada (Hi, Mummy Cici!)... Very cheap, I think. But Sofia wasn't really interested in it... Hm. Honestly, I wasn't satisfied with the product either. When I opened the package, flipped the pages, I was like... Ini je? Hm.
Went to Borders and saw a section for babies and toddlers. But I still couldn't find the touch and feel books that I wanted. But there are a lot of childrens' books that are so cute! And cheap, too! Okay, affordable. Belasan ringgit okay la kan.
I settled for these two books. Both of these tak sampai RM50 pun. Belasan ringgit je each of this. Of good quality too.
Tapi... Tak sampai 24 jam beli buku tu...
While waiting for my husband to pay for the books, I finally found what I wanted. It was written clearly, 'Baby Touch'. Published by Lady Bird, quite a famous publisher for kids books. Each book is around RM40. Exactly what I wanted; different textures for different objects, there's a mirror, wool on the sheep's body. But I didn't buy it. Saving it for next time pulak since I already bought two books. Well, at least I know where to find them.
Oh, do note that these are the ones at IOI Putrajaya. Later on I went to MPH Bangi Gateway. Yup, just a small bookshop. But weh, they have those type of books! By the way, there are also childrens books sold at supermarkets. Econsave ada... Tesco also ada. I've bought a few ones published by MIND TO MIND for Sofia. There are other publishers too, I'm not so sure. But really, you have to check page by page because sometimes F will stand for Fitnah and seriously, who would want to explain what FITNAH is to a baby?
So yeah, pergilah cari.
