If you ever come across one of these vintage cloth books, grab it. Even if your kid has aged out of them completely–they make the best gifts. They are washable–they roll up, and they are lightweight, so you can bring alot of them with you on a cross-country flight. We used them with our daughter until she outgrew them, and any new parent we give them to, thinks they are the best present ever. (The best way to find them–search under “vintage cloth books”.
