My First Words
This book features over 300 everyday words and pictures. It is a first reading book for babies and toddlers, with big bright illustrations on every page. There are lots of familiar objects to look at and name: parts of the face and body, clothes, food, the home and garden, animals on the farm and in the wild, and much more. Fun question-and-answer pages challenge readers to match words to pictures and to think about what different things can do or are used for. It is designed for children and grown-ups to enjoy together, with a wipe-clean padded cover and sturdy board pages. This special book will help young children to recognize everyday words and talk about what they see. Subjects covered include rooms in the home, things that go, the weather, shapes and numbers. The pages are full of interactive questions, such as what clothes do you wear on your hands, how many flowerpots can you see, what do you carry when it rains, and where does the horse live? With hundreds of brightly painted pictures, this chunky boardbook will provide children with hours of fun while improving their language skills and reading abilities.
