Books: First 100 Words

December 1, 2011

There are so many board books for little kids purporting to introduce colors, numbers, letters, animals and on and on and on. As usual, the ones I thought would be of interest to Astrid mostly weren’t. Or were, but only for a couple of days. Curiously, those include all the ones with textures – like a bit of silk on the picture of the purple butterfly, or fuzziness on the sheep. She was interested in those briefly, but what she’s gone for consistently are books with lots of details and a lot going on visually.

Of that group, Priddy’s First 100 Words is her favorite identification book. It’s big, so each page has sixteen square pictures (sorted roughly by theme) and the pictures and labels aren’t going for multiples, which seems appropriate for her age. An apple is an apple, not a “green apple,” for instance.

All kiddies have different preferences, I know, but for what it’s worth, this was $8 well-spent!

First 100 Words, Bright Baby Books, by Roger Priddy, on Amazon from $8.99 or on B& for $8.05
