Little one's early learning books from Nosy Crow: "100 First Words" illustrated by Edward Underwood & "Alphabet Street" by Jonathan Emmett [Review & Giveaway USA/CANADA]

100 First Words illustrated by Edward Underwood giveaways - yes - 2 winners US/CAN no PO box

My thoughts: A very sturdy, large board book to introduce "first words" to very young children. The book includes lift-the-flap discovery items that sort of double-teach. They learn the word and object by also the flaps connection. For example: you lift the barn flap and see a horse and the word "horse." Or you lift the leaf flap and discover a caterpillar and the word caterpillar. In both cases, the flap is the "domain" of the hidden object.

What words are the kiddies learning in this book? Words associated with a farm: horse, farmer, tractor, goose, cow, goat, etc. Words associated with a trip to the zoo: tiger, hippo, zebra, turtle, giraffe etc. Pages for words associated with "vehicles," "About Us," Outside or Inside. 

This is a very organized book of first words and offers lots of learning opportunities other than simply identifying words and pictures.

I highly recommend.

About the book: With easy-to-lift card flaps on each spread, this stylish first word book is sure to hit the mark with little ones as they learn all sorts of new animals and objects. A clean layout grouped by theme features one hundred essential words and simple illustrations to help toddlers understand them.

Alphabet Street by Jonathan Emmett

My thoughts: As with most books from the Nosy Crow imprint of Candlewick Press, the books are innovative and interesting and always appealing to child (and adult). Alphabet Street offers the unusual fold out book that elongates into a "street" where the alphabet can be visualized. You start out at Alfie's Bakery which is right next door to the Cat who is preparing Coffee and Donuts.

Toward the end of the street which is toward the end of the book, you have the Queen's Restaurant where in the loft over the restaurant the Quails are quarreling. 

I just love this delightful book that even has its own pretty ribbon to tie it closed.

I highly recommend.

About the book: A is for Aardvark, asleep in her bed. B is for Bear, who is baking some bread.

This spectacular lift-the-flap book is also a panoramic play scene and a wonderful wall-chart to decorate your room! Lift the flaps, read the funny rhyming text, learn the letters of the alphabet and, then, when you're finished, flip the book over and have fun with the play scene on the reverse.
