The newest board book from the best-selling author-illustrator of Yummy YUCKY and Potty is Toot (yes, that kind of toot). Everyone in the house will get a laugh out of this one. $6.29 at barnesandnoble.com.
That's why we love Patch, Boon's latest (and smallest) version of their Grass line of drying racks. This one's narrow enough to fit on a windowsill or behind the sink. (A Fly accessory expands its drying capacity without taking up extra square inches.) $15.99 at buybuybaby.com.
