The original My First Word Book sold over 1.5 million copies around the world, and now the book is back--revised, refreshed, and ready to entertain. This colorful, oversized volume introduces kids to the world of words with over 1,000 photographs and illustrations. Objects are arranged by category (such as "In the garden" or "Pets") or concept (such as "Colors, shapes, and numbers" and "Opposites"). This essential book can be used for hours of happy browsing, a launching pad for countless stories, or as a fun way to get children started on the road to reading. (Baby to preschool)From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-- An innovative, appealing picture dictionary. Over 1000 words are represented in bright, clear, full-color photographs or detailed acrylic illustrations; all are labeled with large-type print to help children identify concepts and recognize beginning vocabulary. Words are grouped thematically on double-page spreads with such headings as, ``All about me,'' ``Storytime,'' and ``Things that move.'' Similar to ``My First Look at'' series (Random, 1990), this title goes one step further by combining photos of objects with those of smiling, multiethnic boys and girls posed on ladders and blocks to depict ``Opposites'' or playing on swings or in a sandbox ``At the park.'' An index makes the words easy to locate for parents or educators. Children will be charmed by the many surprises, such as using candy to illustrate ``Colors, shapes, and numbers.'' For individual use or group learning, this is an exciting and much-needed volume. --Debra S. Gold, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Cleveland
