A wonderful way to build a love of words, from the creator of Big Book of My World

Part of the My First Picture Book series: perfect for every toddler to help build language, understanding and enjoyment. These books are a bridge between board books and picture books; printed on sturdy card with rounded corners.

My Book of First Words is the perfect companion for children just learning to spot and name, or learning to recognise words. Bright illustrations bring to life all the key objects and favourite things from a child's world.

With clear labels and fun activities to reinforce recognition, this is the ideal way to introduce the building blocks of learning.

This is the 24pp paperback of Big Book of My World, featuring all the elements that help to build vocabulary and language confidence.

Kali's first book, Peely Wally, was selected to be part of the Booktrust's Books for Babies scheme. 150,000 copies will be distributed to mothers and babies throughout the UK in 2012.
