Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Roger Priddy’s passion for educating children through fun, informative and engaging books has led him to create some of publishing’s most enduring and successful non-fiction early learning books. Roger lives in London and has three children, who have been the inspiration behind many of his best publishing ideas.

More About the Author

Roger Priddy is the creator of over two hundred best selling books for young children including Wipe Clean ABC, First 100 Words, and Fuzzy Bee.

When he was at school he couldn't decide between being a patisserie chef or going to art college. On the advice of his father he chose art college and trained as an illustrator before becoming a designer at Usborne Publishing.

Roger's love for children's early learning has led him to create some of the most successful children's non-fiction books, first at Dorling Kindersley (My First Word Book, Incredible Cross Sections and My First Cook Book) before he set up Priddy Books with St. Martins Press in New York where several of his books have sold over a million copies each including My Big Animal Book and Happy Baby Words.

In total he has sold over 65 million books worldwide and his books have been translated into over 30 languages.

He says "It is always rewarding to see a child enjoying and learning something from one of our books, especially the babies when you think it could be the first book they have ever seen.

I am very lucky to have a career where you get to think up fun ways to teach a kid how to write their letters and learn their first words whilst finding out about Dinosaurs at the same time!"

Roger lives with his wife Zena in London and Cork, Ireland (when it's not raining, which isn't very often!) They have four children Sam, Rose, Alannah and Gabriel (and a dog called Wallace) who have given him most of his best ideas for his books. He still loves baking bread and cakes!

With its bright colors, thick board pages, and oversize, this is easily one of my toddler's favorite books. She likes to work through the alphabet and numbers. There is a good balance between pictures, relationships, shapes, and colors.

There is even a section of challenging pictures of opposites and different stages of a toddler's day. In all, a good part of her growing library.

I think the Priddy books are FAR BETTER than the DK books which I think are a bit outdated. This book is excellent. The pictures are bright. They are relatable to kids. My child LOVES this book and it has helped with her language skills. As a former preschool teacher and current teacher, this is a great book for labeling items because they are real items in the pictures! I do think the book is a bit larget for a toddler's hands. They make a smaller version (which we also have) boardbook that is more appropriate for little hands but my daughter still drags this one out.
I highly recommend this book and all of Priddy's books.

We have a huge library of childrens books and this is one of their favorite books for my girl and boy. And this is an excellent gift for a 1 -3 year old! My 1 year son loves to point out the few pictures he knows. Great book for working on new words, such as "Can you point to the teddy bear... ball...orange...etc.". Hands down, excellent pictures and great for building vocabulary!

I really wanted to like this book a lot as a good guide to help my baby learn words. The pictures are generally vibrant, so I like that. I understand the desire was to have simple pictures with a solid background, but some of them do not much sense to me (maybe I need to be much younger?). There are various pictures of toys and animals as well as some time, color, counting (to 10) and the alphabet. But I wonder, why is a teddy bear a 'teddy bear' but a rubber duck a 'duck'? A toy boat, a 'boat'? A toddler on a toy 1950s car a 'car'? And why does the fish on the first page look like it's dead? How are eight multi-colored ball/sphere things 'candies'? Why does the little boy illustrating 'back' and 'front' sitting on his diaper in the 'back' view?

I like this book because it keeps my baby entertained as we look at the different pictures. She especially loves animals so the cat and dog are great on the first page. I think some of the pictures could be improved upon as it might be confusing to younger eyes. Some other pictures are just bizarre.

The First 100 Words book was a favorite of my daughter's when she was first learning to point to things and identify objects, so I thought this would be a great book for teaching her colors, numbers, and the alphabet. It also includes things like prepositions and scenery--it's not just colors, numbers, and the alphabet. It is a very colorful and educational book and my daughter and I like it, but it reads kind of like a baby text book. All of the info is laid out very formally (but with lots of pictures and colors, of course), and it seems that each topic was given only one spread of pages. It's not a bad thing, of course, just not what I was expecting. I prefer My Little Counting Book for numbers and for building her vocabulary b/c it's more playful and less formal. This book is really good though for the alphabet and things not included in My Little Counting Book.

My son enjoys the large Priddy books. He has the 100 first animals book and enjoys it very much. This one has 2 alphabet pages which face one another and is nice. The only problem is that it goes A-B-C-N-O . . . In other words, when the book is facing you, the letters wrap to your left and when it hits the bottom of the page, they begin on the top of the right side page. That page also seems a little busy - it feels overwhelming when you first look at it. Otherwise, the book is very entertaining for a little one. My guy likes the 100 first animals book better though.

This book is excellent! When I first made the purchase, I was expecting a four x four inch board book with colors, abc's, and numbers on sequential pages. But this is more than that! At first glance you may think to yourself 'self, no wonder kids are all over the place and ADHD with such books around!' But honestly, my baby enjoys looking at each picture, and attempts to count or read aloud each word. And anything that gets a kid excited about reading is a good book to me!

This is our toddlers favorite book right now! She loves pointing out all the animals she knows and she's learning her colors with all the creative pages. We love how it's a big board book!

It was so fun to see how she had learned over 100 words by the time she was 18 mos old and could name almost everything in this book!
