What did you like about the book? This is a picture book that classifies 1000 words into 26 categories. Some of the headings are “Family Dinner” or “Trucks and Engines.” It is an oversized book and one of the best features is that the pages are laminated. This book can hold up to sticky fingers and lots of use. The illustrations are detailed and the words the author chose are words that young toddlers would have in their world. There aren’t any obscure animal names. I especially liked the “good night” category as it shows children sleeping in a tent, on a futon, in a teepee and in a hut.

Anything you didn’t like about it? I liked everything about the book

Where would you shelve it ? Children’s Books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles?  Yes
