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!

I purchased this book for my 16 month old son for Christmas. Out of all the "first words" books out there, I found this to be the best-bright colors, one picture per page (others have too many pictures on one page). I will ask my son to find the apple, fish, etc. and he will flip through the pages to find them. He also learned how to say several of the words from this book! Perfect size for toddlers, can take in the car.

I went back to Barnes & Noble to buy the set, but they don't sell them anymore-so, of course I purchased them from Amazon.

My 23 month old loves this book! Bright contrasting colors, simple concepts, and vivid pictures keep her attention while I read to her. I also like the sturdy construction, definitely toddler proof. We're planning on getting the other books in the series for her birthday.

Format: Board book
Good small, simple first words book. It is sized for little hands - approx 5.25" x 5.25" - and is very sturdy (definitely baby/toddler proof). There is only one picture on each page, which I like in theory because I thought it would allow my baby to focus more on each image and accompanying word. However, in reality it doesn't seem to hold my 13-mo-old baby's attention for whatever reason. He strongly prefers the books we bought with multiple pictures on each page - his favorites are Tabbed Board Books: My First Words: Let's Get Talking! (TAB BOARD BOOKS) and First 100 Words (Bright Baby). I don't know if my baby is an anomaly, though - it seems from the other reviews like lots of other babies love them. We will not be buying any more books from this series for us though.

Format: Board book
This book is sturdy, durable, visually interesting, well-designed and a great place to launch an infant's interest in books, photos and naming the real-life items he/she sees every day. Bright Baby First Words is part of a wonderful series of board books which includes Bright Baby Animals and Bright Baby Colors (both of which I also highly recommend). Rather than confusing an infant's eyes with an array of images all at once, the nice thing about these books is that they are laid out very simplistically with one photograph and word per page on a solid-colored background. No clutter and no distractions. For the infant who is just starting to point at everything in the world and seek "identification tags", this entire series is the perfect first set of books.

Ever since he was an infant, my son has kept coming back to these books. I think it is because they can be easily adapted to teach a variety of concepts and they evolve to meet his constantly changing points of interest. I give this book five stars for a variety of reasons including the simple visual images it provides, the focused learning it encourages, and the variety of ways in which it can be used to teach not just words, but also other concepts such as colors. With its beautiful photography of real-life images set against simple, solid backgrounds, this book is definitely a solid choice with which to start your child's home library!

Format: Board book
This book is fantastic! We have several "first words" books and this is my 20 month old's favorite by far. The fact that each word is tied to a photograph of an object, rather than an artist's rendering, is much easier for him to process and understand. So not only can he say the corresponding word to each picture as we page though the book, but then when he encounters the real object, his mind makes the association much more quickly...helping him to learn words at a faster pace! Highly recommend this!

Format: Board book Verified Purchase
The pictures in this book are so vibrant. And the cover is made of a nice material that doesn't come off when my daughter gnaws on it. The corners are curved, so they don't poke.

My 7 month-old loves to look through this book on her own, or have it read to her. It's one of her favorites!

My only complaint (very minor) is that the teddy bear in it is really ugly and it shows a polo shirt and labels it "t-shirt" and shows a light jacket and calls it a "coat". Minor minor issues. No biggie.

Get this book!

My 14-month-old loves this book. It's easy to hold and loaded with great photos. I think reading these books to her has helped her learn many new words in the past two months. Wonderful!
