Books for babies get the Ripley touch

Ripley Publishing’s new “board books,” present oddities and freakish facts in a new way — to preschoolers.

Yes, kids, the world is becoming even more unbelievable for young readers. “Ripley’s Believe It or Not! ODDphabet” and “Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Wacky 1-2-3” rely on unusual animals to entertain babies and their parents.

Mommies and daddies grew up with and are fond of the Ripley brand, said Sabrina Sieck, lead researcher for the Orlando-based Ripley Entertainment, which established its publishing arm about a decade ago.

“They watched the [Ripley’s] TV show, whether is was with Jack Palance or Dean Cain,” Sieck said. “They want to share that with their children. That makes reading the book and teaching them their ABC’s or 123’s a lot more fun for the parent.”
