Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
More than 400 bright photographs of people, places, and things are clearly labeled and introduced by theme in this appealing concept book. The book's broad scope ranges from concepts like letters, numbers, and colors to objects found at home and in the world at large. Interactive prompts urge readers to draw associations between the words and pictures. A spread titled "On the Farm," includes a donkey, hay bale, pony, goat, and tractor, while a travel-focused spread depicts a mountain, a lake, city buildings, and a highway ("Where would you find lots of boats?"). Additional seek-and-find components (two teddy bears hide throughout) should ensure that toddlers have fun while building comprehension. Ages 3–6. (June)
