I got this book for my grandson who is only seven months old.I wanted my son and daughter in law to be able to show him the pictures and say the words to him.In the months ahead my grandson can hold the book and learn by looking at it with them.
My kid is at a stage where he is trying to say words and frequently points at objects asking me what that is and how to say it. This book is excellent for it ! It being a big board book with decent sized pictures is perfect for a toddler !
I bought this book thinking it would be filled with simple words you would expect to be part of your baby’s first 100 words spoken. It does have a lot of what you’d expect as far as animals and objects, however I feel some of the words aren’t what I would expect. For example, there is a picture of a stuffed animal labeled as “soft toy” and on the same page is a tower of fabric blocks labeled “soft blocks”. Not at all what I would think a baby would say. I would’ve loved to see a page of body parts (eyes, nose, mouth etc)—nope, but there are three pages of animals. The first page is “colors” but instead of just labeling the colors, a colored object is shown and labeled (blue ball, brown goat). In all, my daughter does like the book, but I bought online and if I would’ve seen it in store and had the opportunity to look through it, I wouldn’t have purchased this book.
Fantastic. This book is very colorful, bright and great illustrations. The pages are thick and hard, so that they won't tear out of the book. The coating appears to be one that you could wipe off any spills.
The size of this book is much larger than I expected. I had seen a similar book in a small format and wasn't thrilled, so I was very happy that it turns out this bok is large with words/pictures that are easy for a little one to see. Not every word is going to be useful in our particular family, but there are plenty on each page to talk about with the little one. Too many other books designed for ages 0-1 are more suited for age 4-5, and this one is just where it should be - simple words to repeat and enjoy and "talk" about.
