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.
1. The author categorized the words into the following groups: colors, things that go, bathtime, bedtime, mealtime, food, myself, outside, clothes, toys, pets and farm animals. I am very surprised that there is no "family" or "body parts" in it while words like: mother, dad, eye, nose, hand are so easy and supposed to be within the first 100 words.
2. The pictures are poorly selected. The pictures of cry and laugh are so similar. The car is not the most common sedan car but a two doors sport car. The picture of bath tub would be better if change to bubble. There are so many other examples and I don't want to keep describe them.
3. It is really difficult to turn the pages. They somehow stick with each other so tide. I usually turn more than one pages even that's not what I want to do.
4. Repetition of the same words and similar words. "Duck" shows up three times. Sheep, lamb and goat are in the same page for farm animals. How about donkey or turkey?
1. Round edge and very sturdy pages. The pages ARE sturdy. I tried to ripped the pages and I couldn't so I think it will last the mistreating of little kids' chewing, throwing, licking, hitting or whatever.
I give it a 2 stars because of that. My daughter LOVES book. She loves book so much better than any other toys that she would stop crying if I put any book in front of her. This is the book I give her to play with when I could see her but not touch her such as I am driving or cooking. I know that she is not going to hurt herself and she won't ripped the pages and swallow the paper.
I think this book is more like a toy to my daughter than a book. She is 9 months now.
