Babies and toddlers love trying on different clothes - and they will find plenty of outfits to look at in the bold, bright photographs inside this padded boardbook! The simple, lively text encourages reading skills and interactive questioning, asking which clothes would a baby wear on a cold day, and what am I dressed up as? The final pages test how many different kinds of clothes the reader has remembered. This first words and picture book will delight and inform children, whether reading on their own or with an adult. Visually exciting, fun to use and built to endure, this is an ideal introduction to the world of books. Experts agree that preschool children respond more immediately to photographs than to illustrations, and so this chunky boardbook shows a great variety of garments. There are clothes for keeping warm when it is cold outside, clothes for staying dry when it is raining, clothes for keeping cool, clothes for doing sports, clothes for our top halves and clothes for our bottom halves. Compiled with the advice of educational experts, this book combines lively, simple text with bold, bright photographs to promote the development of literacy skills.
The images are carefully arranged into visual and subject groups, such as baby clothes, night clothes, dressing-up costumes to wear at a party, and clothes with different patterns on them. This encourages young readers to make connections, and to see how various things work and link together.
