This is a first words and recognition book for children to look at, either by themselves or with grown-ups. Little ones are fascinated by pictures of other babies, especially when they show them doing familiar and fun things like dressing (do I have to?), eating (oops, am I making a mess?), swinging (whee!) and taking a bath. It features strong, simple pictures and stimulating word play. Learning is both exciting and enjoyable, with cheerful photographs of lots of babies, their toys, their clothes, and their busy day. Visually engaging, fun to use and built to last, this is an ideal introduction to the world of books. This book is full of bright and bold real-life pictures. It has been specially compiled with the advice of expert consultants to appeal to the awakening visual senses of babies and toddlers. It will capture any child's attention with images and shapes that he or she will immediately recognize and respond to. Here they will find children just like them laughing, crying (that's better - all dry now), playing ball (don't try to eat it!), and much more. This book will bring a smile to any little one's face.Meanwhile, grown-ups can point to and repeat the words and simple phrases. With a special padded cover, chunky board pages, fabulous photographs and engaging text, this is an ideal first (baby) step towards reading.
