    After having read this book for the 377th time tonight I feel I can finally provide an adequate review of this masterwork. There are indeed 100 words in this book. I would not consider them neither my nor my daughters first words, however I was initially raised on a farm and she has a daddy that likes scotch and gambling on football. My point is individual results may vary a bit.

    This is a great picture dictionary that can be used with infants. The illustrations are very large and colorful to keep the attention of the little ones. The pages are hard, which makes it easy for our new readers to turn the pages. This book is great for talking to infants about things they see in the world everyday.

    4* colour photography4* conceptThis is a long-time favorite. Squirt loves the bright colours and the familiar objects. We've been reading this over and over for months and it hasn't lost any of its interest for him. He's learning new words every day, so this is a great book for that, and of course, he turns each page by himself, which seems to be what really matters in the end.

    This book is awesome for children learning words and or learning to talk. All 4 of our children loved this book. It is colorful and bright for little ones. It teaches colors, shapes, word recognition all at the same time. If your little youngster is learning to talk and loves to point at objects or asks, "what dat?" this is the book for you.

    Auntie Sharon and Auntie Amy gave me this book for my birthday. It is so cool! I like to carry it around with me and then show it to people so they can learn new words. I also like that some of the kids look like me. I can't say all 100 words yet, but I'm working on it.

    Good concept but I have a few quibbles. Please take them with a grain of salt. I'm purposely being overcritical, because after you see something every day, several times a day, and your second coffee hasn't kicked in yet, you start picking it apart. First is that some of the words are not those I'd consider the first, or are not simple. Sweatshirt. Mobile (the twirly thing above the crib, not a handprint) - when would a toddler actually need to say that? Soft toy. Stacking rings. Soft blocks. Sippy cup. The photos for some aren't the best choice. Duck is a white duck with a rainbow butt, instead of the usual more easily identifiable yellow duck. Slippers pictured are actually shoes. Carrots are carrot sticks not the unprocessed form. Technology used outdated models: Telephone is a cordless landline. Television isn't a flat screen. The cry photo looks like laughing. Socks are these psychedelic Christmasy colored pair. What I'm saying is maybe it would have been more helpful to portray the baseline forms of each item, instead of including an uncommon specimen.Then the formatting/labels. Each page has 9 photos, with the center panel being the description of the category of the items on the page. But there is no label of what it is. I had to write them down with a marker. For example: page for farm animals: I wrote "chick". For wild animals: "monkey". Toys: "train". Clothes: idk what it's supposed to be but it's a relatable enough photo. Home is fine. Food: I scribbled in "grapes". Bedtime: "sleep". Bathtime I left blank. Idk what is the middle photo in Things That Go (Couldn't it have been Vehicles?). Another truck? I left it blank. Then another petty gripe is the font, for the letter m the middle bar doesn't come down enough. I drew them in with a black marker. Am I being psycho? Yes. The label also says 0+ but kidlet wasn't really into it until around 9 or 10 months, and now 11 he'll reach for it and want to flip the pages and listen to me point things out. I know babies develop differently, but I'd say below 4 months no need to torture yourself with this prematurely, just read what you like out loud to your kiddo.

    Newfound appreciation for books like this -- less for me, more for A. I get it now. ;) The "real" images are so important and helpful for her. It's been fun to work through different areas of interest (house animals, non-house animals, things she sees outside, things she sees in the house, etc.) and looking forward to her getting more into colors and shapes. Currently she chants "PAPA!" and points at the airplane because the one time we read it and he was flying at the time, which I told her. #steeltrap

    Laura liked the different pictures, colors, and interesting words. I am glad our Aunt Mary Lou got her two other first 100 words books! It's nice to have a visual dictionary for her.

    The characters were certainly attention-getting but the plot was a bit thin.

    This book is awesome for infants and expanding their vocabulary. I have worked in infant classrooms many times and they seem to really enjoy books such as this one, that are hard-back, colorful and has lots of pictures. Being that this is a board-material book, infants will have an easier time turning the pages and developing their fine motor skills. I've always noticed that the various colors exposes them to colors and keeps them fascinated by the book. The pictures also give them a lot to look at. I would use this book in various ways. With a group of infants, I would hold the book up while reading the words and pointing to the pictures for them to associate the two. With an individual infant, I would hold him or her in my lap and we would hold the book in front of us and review, point, and call out the words, allowing the infant to hear, touch, observe and explore the book for as long as he/she wants to. The book can be reviewed over and over again, which will help infants retain the words, adding to the list of ones that they will recognize and be able to say once they begin to speak.

    12/28/1612/29/16Mom said she does not like books like this. There is no story, only a bunch of pictures with labels and she says it is no fun to read. So she avoids them.But _I_ like to read it! So I read it two nights in a row. The second night, I brought it to mom and said ball, nana, and then panted like a dog, while I pointed to the pictures on the front. So we sat down and read. I know lots of words in this book. Car. ball. baby. shoes. also there is choooo choooo and a weeeooooh weeoooohhh. And even a quack quack. mom laughs when she points at one picture, and i put my hand to my ear and say "hi! bye bye!" I don't know what's so funny, that's what you do with that thing! Some things I know sign language for but not speaking. But mom says that it counts.2/11/17 - I picked this out of the pile today so mom and I read it and pointed at pictures. I also read this at daycare, so I get lots of practice. But those readings are not marked here.

    I liked how colorful this book was and that it used photographs. I also liked how the words were categorized, rather than being alphabetical or something. Like another reviewer said, this would be an awesome book for pointing and naming. And, the picture of the kitten was super cute :)I didn't love the selection of words though. With only 100 words, I was surprised that three sets of words were all animals. There were a few others I wouldn't choose as well, like "motorcycle," "slippers, and "pencil." And I was surprised that the first section was all two word phrases of the colors. Overall, if I was going to choose 100 words, a lot of them would have been different. We recieved this book at Natalie's 9 month doctor's appointment. :)

    L is almost 2 and she is OBSESSED with this book. She makes me read this to her at least once a day, sometimes multiple times a day. She shoves it into my hand and says, "A book! Read it!" Sometimes she likes to just listen to me say all the words, and other times she wants to repeat all of them after me. Now that we've read it so many times she's beginning to "read" it to me. Her 4-year-old brother can "read" this to her, too, which is very sweet. I'd say this is her favorite book at the moment for sure. This is definitely one that is only interesting to the toddler crowd, though! It's literally just pictures and nouns, but she loves it.

    I love the idea and the look of this book. It's very attractive and compelling; the eye wants to take in each picture individually as well as the look of each spread and concept. I don't know whether all the words were really in my baby's first 100 vocabulary, which makes me a bit uncomfortable in terms of how, like, prescriptive the book is being in terms of normatizing certain experiences. But this could just be me. Yesterday I received a free trial offer to a women's magazine, and all I could think as I was looking at the glossy advert was, "Well, maybe if they employed a single woman of colour."

    My daughter LOVES this book. We will give this to her in her carseat, and she will still be reading it (looking at it) when we reach our destination - no matter how far. It's the perfect size for her. The cover is padded so it's softer to hold and has rounded edges. The pages are board book and have pictures of all sorts of things grouped in categories.It's a great way for kids to learn words. There are also pictures of babies in it for most of the categories which is just something that all kids like anyway. This is a book that every child should have as a baby. And parents should definitely keep it in the car or diaper bag!

    We have only had this book for a little over a week and our one year old son absolutely loves it! Originally we first came across it at our local library and then decided to order one online. It is a sturdy well made board book with bright pictures and pages to capture any childs attention. It has many everyday words that will be a great learning tool for kids as well. Topics it covers is: Colors, shapes, bath time, bed time, eating, animals and even trucks. Best of all it is small enough to take anywhere with you. I would easily recommend this book to anyone who is wanting a fun and educational way to teach your child new words.

    Purchased when my daughter was at an age where she loved to point at things she knew in books. I enjoy the illustrated version of the point and name book that we have (Ole Könnecke's The Big Book of Words and Pictures) much more than this, and despite the fact that children are supposed to prefer photos over illustrations in these kind of books, my daughter seems to prefer the illustrated version as well, perhaps because, as other reviewers have mentioned, a significant fraction of the photos in this book are dated or confusing stock-type photos.

    At this point, my daughter is still too young to actually read. I've been using this book more to get her in the habit of handling books than I have as an actual learning tool.The pages are sturdier than the other board books she's gotten, so she can actually flip from one page to another on her own, and the pages don't dissolve when she chews on them. Bonus points for that!I can see that this book would work nicely as a baby dictionary, to teach children to associate words with pictures of everyday things - from colors, to clothes, to animals.

    3* I've never read this book. I plan to add a random children's book to my feed for every book I edit. Often they aren't published in a timely manner (or ever in a manner that leads to them being in Goodreads) and I always read them a minimum of 2 times while editing so I should be able to count them towards my goal. Really, I should add 2 but I'll go with 1 at this point.9/2 - mystery - RDJ, 197p

    This is a much loved book in our house. I think it really helped to improve our daughter's vocabulary when she first started speaking. We first used the book to teach words by asking our daughter to point to the items we named, and later started asking her, "What's this?" so she could name the items. It was a book she chose for bedtime reading most nights for a long time and she still pulls it out sometimes now (she's almost 26 months old).

    The recommended age printed on the back of the book is for age 0+. We have been looking at this with our daughter since she was 6 months. She is now 15 months and will point to most of the items if we ask her to find them. The page that had household items should be updated using more current items. The tv and computer are pretty outdated. We have really enjoyed the book and would definitely recommend it to anyone with a baby.

    This is a pretty good book but some of the pictures are not easily recognizable to kids. The slippers look like shoes and the duck has a rainbow pattern on its back. A rubber duck is usually yellow so I am not sure why they chose the items they did. The television and high chair are both super outdated. The book was published in 2005 so I am not sure why they have such outdated pictures. It may be time for republishing.

    The good:*bright, high-contrast colors*simple pictures of the actual object or action, not illustrations*relevant words for infants and toddlers*infants and toddlers of all different skin colors in the picturesThe bad:*there are 7-10 words and accompanying illustrations in every spread, so the pages are BUSY*the words are all in black text, so on some of the darker backgrounds, they can be difficult to see and read

    One of the few books that Leo will actively seek out and pull off the bookshelf to look at. Each page has 16 nice, colorful photos of familiar items - am hoping will be a good way to teach some words. Some of the photos are a bit dated, though - e.g., TV, computer, etc. look nothing like our current gadgetry.

    Very useful knowledge sharing book where the parent can work with the child to identify various items by catergories and by colors, such as a group of transportation vehicles including a red car, a brown truck etc. Common items that the child will easily recognize makes this a great interactive read.

  • Kelsey Gibson

    I love this book. The pages are colorful and sturdy. And it is very well organized. All of the pages represent different categories and have words and pictures revenant to that item. Topics include: home, myself, bedtime and so many more. Every item the list in this book is relevant and useful, it is a great book to read to babies and toddlers to help them learn the names of things around them.

  • Jemma

    Not that impressed because the book is organised poorly. The only page with double word descriptions is the first page and therefore the most difficult words come first. Then the next set of images are vehicles which aren't as relevant to babies' lives as sleep, clothes etc. and should be placed before the vehicles.
