1. Too much detail for some photos and not enough detail for others. E.g., in Toys we have a "Soft Toy" for a rabbit and "Soft blocks" for building blocks. Why not just call it what it is.. a rabbit or building blocks.
2. A small peeve of mine - I am an avid soccer player. Under colors we have a "blue ball". This blue ball is a soccer ball. I wish they would have included a section on say, "Sports". Then you could have an object for each sport. Now each time I come to the colors section with my daughter I explain that it is a blue ball but it really is a soccer ball.
3. Would have been better if the last section was "Bedtime". Why Bedtime was put four up in the front of the book I could not venture to guess.
4. Should have had a more extensive food page. In fact, make the food page span two pages. This is something children do three or more times a day. They will know and relate to this more than any other section. They could even have apportioned the sections to say "Fruits and Vegetables" or something of the like.
5. No shoes in the "Clothes" section.. only rain boots?
6. Is that a diaper in the "Clothes" section? A better photo should have been taken.
7. Why not crayons in the "Toys" section?
8. There are two telephones in this book. One in "Home" and one in "Toys". Could we not think of some other possible toy?
9. Why not a musical instrument section? This could have been included. Instead we have THREE pages of animals (Pets, Farm Animals and Wild Animals).
10. The "Myself" section should have been called "Expressions" or "Faces".
11. How is a potty associated with "Bathtime"?
12. Instead of slippers or mobile for "Bedtime" why not a pacifier or bottle of milk or water?
Save your money and take the time you would have spent reading this book to your child each day (or whatever your frequency would be) and take them outside for a walk.
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.
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.
