The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2014 A feast of words for every kind of situation is spread across the beautiful pages of this book. The words that are included come from the story of a family’s everyday life. From the opening spread which is a cross-section of the family home, it is all delightfully busy! There are bedrooms and bathrooms and a living room and a kitchen and something interesting is happening in each. As the day progresses, the family hurry about their business at home and out and about. Lots to look at and lots to learn.

My Big Barefoot Book of Wonderful Words by Sophie Fatus
Seeing new things and learning new words opens so many doors for children! With this unique book, youngsters follow a bustling family through their busy day. The story unfolds through simple header sentences and bright, detailed illustrations.
Each scene is teeming with people, places and things. But what makes this book really different is that each of the narrative, ‘real world’ scenes is followed and further developed by an abstract, interactive one. After the family gets dressed, for example, the readers are invited to choose their own outfits from a global closet of clothing. This alternating pattern enables the theme of each ‘real world’ scene to be amplified, and gives the book a simple, repetitive rhythm.
