Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Expertly developed to introduce the basics of reading and inspire children to discover their surroundings, this first book of words encourages what youngsters naturally love to do—explore and ask questions. Kid-friendly design and hundreds of charming photos capture children's attention and enliven the colors, numbers, shapes, and patterns that beginning readers need to know as they learn and grow. From animals to everyday objects this charming book provides practice in matching shapes, colors, and sizes while enhancing vocabulary. Throughout the book, fun questions pique youngsters' curiosity and motivate them to learn more. With its fresh approach, colorful photos, and handy prompts that guide parents as they interact with their children, this is the perfect book for reading and sharing—and for giving little ones a strong start as they learn about the world around them.

Review:

"More than 400 bright photographs of people, places, and things are clearly labeled and introduced by theme in this appealing concept book. The book's broad scope ranges from concepts like letters, numbers, and colors to objects found at home and in the world at large. Interactive prompts urge readers to draw associations between the words and pictures. A spread titled 'On the Farm,' includes a donkey, hay bale, pony, goat, and tractor, while a travel-focused spread depicts a mountain, a lake, city buildings, and a highway ('Where would you find lots of boats?'). Additional seek-and-find components (two teddy bears hide throughout) should ensure that toddlers have fun while building comprehension. Ages 3 — 6. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
