Straightforward, clear, vivid, this mini picture dictionary is an ideal learning tool for budding young readers. Bright photographs of familiar objects, such as flowerpots, seagulls, potties, toast, telephones, and shampoo, illustrate simple word concepts and expand vocabulary skills. Based on the esteemed DK Publishing's bestselling full-size My First Word Book, this chunky little version is just right for small, curious hands. With categories such as "In the kitchen," "Toys," "In the garage," and "All about me," children can recognize and name familiar objects, as well as master new vocabulary. Photographs of related items (teapot, blender, spoon, saucepan) with the associated word help young readers categorize objects and connect words to images. Sections on colored shapes and counting broaden young readers' educational horizons even further! (Baby to preschool) --Emilie CoulterFrom Publishers Weekly:
This bountiful catalogue of words in a typical preschooler's world marks the debut of the U.S. imprint of Dorling Kindersley, British innovators of the colorful photographic nonfiction identified with the Eyewitness series (Knopf). Crisp photographs and a few supplemental drawings of familiar household objects, foods, toys and clothing are neatly arranged on the spreads. A neighborhood post office and library, items in a supermarket and animals on a farm appear against ample white backgrounds--which help focus attention on these clearly labeled illustrations. Several energetic, brightly clad youngsters demonstrating "actions" and "playtime" are particularly engaging. This is a valuable first pictorial dictionary for youngest readers; older children may also enjoy using the index to match up objects, words and page numbers. Ages 4-8.
