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. I’ve noticed there are some similar titles, such as First 100 Animals and First 100 Numbers Colors Shapes. I will be looking to purchase these in the future too. It seems the simple things really are the best sometimes.
The only con is that there are multiples of some words. For example: one page has "ball" and a few pages later there is "blue ball". It repeats itself for a handful of objects. Not a huge deal, just something to note.
Overall, I highly recommend. Every baby/toddler should have this book in their collection. It's a high quality book that has withstood my rough 14 month old.
How it is helping my son:
-This book is definitely helping him expand his vocabulary.
-It is also helping him with his hand eye coordination. There are gray shapes corresponding to each sticker to give a clue where the stickers go. I’ve noticed that he is doing better placing the stickers more in line with the gray shape (for example, making sure the leaf of the apple is facing up).
My only wish is that the stickers were thicker or easier to peel off. If he wants to correct the placement, he ends up ripping it.
