Great word book Apr 30, 2008
It's a great word book. I bought two: one for my 2 year old daughter and one for my 6 years old niece. She will start to learn English in september at Elementary school and this book is great, with so many words. I intend to buy this book for my other niece because I think it's just great. Specially for kids who learn English as a second language. And I found few words I didn't know...
2 year old loves it! Feb 18, 2008
We had checked out this book at our local library and my daughter loved it so much that we renewed it as many times as we could. When the time came that we had to return it, I bought it here on this site. She loves pointing at the pictures and telling me what they are. It's a great tool for learning words!
Superb! May 12, 2007
My little ones love this book! Great photos! They take this one to bed for one last read before "lights out".
Glad I found it! Nov 12, 2006
My daughter loved this book when she was little, and I'm so glad they are still around for my niece, as she is learning how to talk. The real photos are much more helpful than cartoons or illustrations, and the children really connect this with learning.........
Wonderful picture book Aug 14, 2006
Was searching for a great picture book to teach my toddler beginning words. This book keeps her interest and she enjoys flipping the pages. So many different types of pictures all in one book. Especially great are the pages with various clothing types and body parts. Warning though as it is not a board book, expect to use lots of tape.
