The Big Book of Words for Curious Kids by Heloise Antoine & Ingrid Gordon (Review & Giveaway)

About the book: This colorful, appealing word book makes observing, recognizing and naming things an exciting adventure in learning. Each page in THE BIG BOOK OF WORDS FOR CURIOUS KIDS features numerous pictures revolving around familiar themes in a child's life - clothing, toys, food, and animals, just to name a few. Certain objects, such as Bobo the stuffed bunny, appear repeatedly throughout the book, encouraging image recognition. This book - at once a picture book, word book, and beginning reader - help make those first few steps into the world of words much less daunting and much more fun. 
  • Age Range: 4 and up 
  • Series: Big Book of Words Series
  • Hardcover: 32 pages
  • Publisher: Peachtree Pub Ltd
  • ISBN-13: 978-1561451111
My thoughts: Children love books that they can return to over and over and continue to discover treasures within. In The Big Book of Words for Curious Children there are hundreds of tiny, sketched and colorful pictures that the child can identify as they would touch on his/her life. Familiar objects or those easily learned when identified for him. Children find delight in "seek 'n search" and a book such as this can easily be turned into such an activity.

I found the art delightfully sweet and charming and this alone is enough to endear the book to readers. I like that the little bunny finds a way to join in the fun throughout the book. A fun twist for the kids to find throughout.

With a sturdy hardcover, little hands will enjoy learning and beginning their venture of the printed word. A good resource for the parent to have around for their child. Each two-page spread features a charming picture of little ones engaged in polite, social engagements - sharing, working together, reading together, etc. 

Needless-to-say, I recommend this book to you.

  9. I was never a big fan of word books with my verbose little girls, but my little boy has been much slower to speak and word books seem to really help him so I've begun to appreciate them now. Thanks so much for sharing this at Booknificent Thursday at Mommynificent.com! Hope to see you again soon!
