{Synopsis} – Parents and friends will love sharing first words with babies in this vibrant board book featuring animal friends.

Babies will have fun learning the names of favorite animals and the sounds they make through the glossy embossed pictures in this playful and interactive book, packed with first words such as dog, woof!, lion, roar! and more.

{My thoughts} – I enjoyed flipping through this board book. I especially like the bright colors and the bold print. I think that the words and the illustrations go together nicely. Hand and hand and they help to make it easy for a young child to see what each word means. I also like the different textures in which the pages are made. Each page has a different kind of texture to it that allows a young child to run their hands or fingers across to show the difference between page and illustration.

There are a number of animals mentioned within the pages of this book. Each animal is then labeled and the sound in which it makes is added. I believe this will help children to put together the animal name, what it looks like and the sound that it makes when they are introduced to this book.

I highly recommend this book for any child under the age of four. I think that they can learn a lot from it even though it covers a minimal amount of words. My only disappointment with the book is it didn’t have a giraffe in it.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
