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 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
