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.

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.

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!

This is one of our 9-month old's favorite books. It's one of the only books that holds her attention for the full length of the book. Each page has only one large picture and one word, like "boy", "girl", "dog", "cat", etc. These books are awesome. I also recommend this book, made by the same company, as a companion book. It's all pictures of animals:

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!

This is one of the best books for babies. I had it since my older one was born, and got it again for my little one since his speech therapist uses it a lot in the sessions with him. Great pictures, colors and the little ones love it!

My son is in speech therapy and we originally got this book at the recommendation of his therapist.
This books size and simplicity makes it the best book to capture a child's interest and encourage communication and engagement with your child.
I now buy this book for every baby shower.
