Previous reviews have indicated some confusion over the book size. This version of the book is pretty small (it's 5 x 6 inches; an over-sized ABC/colors version can be found here), and it can withstand rough little hands as it is a board book.
Each brightly colored page shows various photographs alongside the corresponding word. I like that it uses photographs instead of illustrations (animals wearing clothes, etc.). The pages are split into themes of things your LO will probably recognize from everyday life, such as clothes, food, things that go and so on.
My son has had this book for a couple of months now and it’s been a huge hit with him. He will sit on the floor and look through it himself. Together, we look at the pages and I point to each picture and say the word. I’ve started him with some Tiny Tutor videos to supplement our lessons while I do chores around the house. We do this most days and the repetition seems to be paying off, as he seems to recognize a new thing in the book every day.
Although rather basic on the face of it, I am really delighted with this book and wish we’d had it sooner. It is selling for under $5 on Amazon which I think is a real bargain.Read more ›
I saw mentioned that it is 'oversized' and someone mentioned the dimensions as being 11"x11"
In actual fact it's small, like a pocket book (6" x 5" and a bit under an inch thick) - I was surprised by how small.
The images are bold, but the photos are occasionally a bit cheap stock photo style.
The cover has a squashy padding inside (which is the reason for the material warning, since the foam contains a fire retardant)
Overall it's ok.
Gradually in course of time she enters into world of words.
We selected Roger Priddy's first 100 words as the first step for our 2 year old pumpkin pie towards vast ocean of words.
This was our first purchase of Roger Priddy book.
Firstly it's a board book..safe in little hands.
Not so big not too little .. Just right size for little hands.
The book is divided in different sections which consists of relevant words with beautiful real life images.
Eg. Pets section consists of words like dog, puppy, cat, kitten,turtle, fish, rabbit, Guinea pig. The images are not hand drawn they are real images of real lets and that's most liked by us. She easily identifies these pets pictures with real pets and easily learnt the words also.
The sections of words are :
Colors, Things that go, Bathtime , Bedtime , Toys, Myself and so on.
Each section is correlated to a child's day to day life.
First section starts with colors. What a beautiful way it is to start a child's journey into words. I think colors are the best way to start teaching a child.
The sections are named in a very easy way like things that go instead of vehicles .
Each page consists of 9-10 words with the images.
After so much use the book has lost a bit of its binding tightness but still it's doing great .
We love to play quiz game with our daughter with this book and she likes this game a lot and off course the book also.
It's really big ideas for little people.

It's OK, but I finished it in a few minutes. There's no plot to speak of either...whatever.
Lastly, I already know all of these words!
