Scarlett's had a bookshelf in her room filled with books waiting for her since before she was born. Overtime, she's acquired more books and needed a second shelf to hold all of her favorites. When we do eventually move into a bigger home, I'd love to get her a large bookshelf that holds everything we have. We spend a lot of time reading together and it's honestly the best thing you can do for your chid. Reading helps a child's imagination, brain development, creativity, and vocabulary.
When Scarlett was sent DK's 100 First Words book, I knew she'd love it. We have similar books to this one but not as detailed and broad. The large board book houses crystal-clear photos that show the wonder of the real world from baby's body and food to shapes, colors, animals, and so much more. The delightful illustrations tell simple stories that foster learning from penguins playing in the snow to a mouse climbing a ladder. Clear word labels encourage pointing, naming and talking, which aides in early identification and language skills.
With 14 themed pages covering all the familiar things little ones are interested in, it's the perfect book for parents and babies to share. Since the book is a large size, it's easy for little ones to hold while they read with mom or dad.
Over the past few months, Scarlett's been able to identify so much in a book when she's asked. I'm impressed by her widening-knowledge of the world and proud of her too! She was very excited to look at this book and immediately smiled and pointed at some of the pictures that interested her. I know that it makes her feel accomplished and she gets joy out of the book too.
One page had a picture of an owl in a tree and she made the "hoot hoot" noise that an owl made. She's a smart girl! The colors in the book are bold and vibrant and each illustration is clear and vivid. I really think this is a beautiful book that any mom-to-be would appreciate as a baby shower gift, as well as a present for a new baby too.
Since Scarlett is two, she knows what a majority of the illustrations are and can identify them, although there are still many that she doesn't know. I like that each specific section of the book has many illustrations for each category. For example, out and about has rain and a scooter in it. Scarlett doesn't know either at this point and it's a helpful way to teach her.
It's never too early or too late to teach your child! DK's 100 First Words book is a positive first start for any baby.
