The Lovereading4Kids comment

Taking us through a toddler’s day, from waking up and breakfast to dinner time and bedtime, this lively book is full of essential words illustrated in jolly and cosy scenes that the very young will instantly recognise. Books like this are a perfect way to practise vocabulary and to help little children develop word-picture association. It’s also a lovely, easy book to share, each page providing heaps of things to look at and talk about. ~ Andrea Reece


My Day: First Words by Marilyn Janovitz

How can so many words be packed into a day? What's the word for the thing you drink from, or the thing full of water that you splash around in?

Learn the answers throughout the day: from when your child wakes up, until they go to bed. Whether they are having breakfast, playing, going to the park or having a bath, there are words that they will recognize and learn. Simple words like bed, plate, dog, book, teddy and many more are paired with charming illustrations. A portable package that can go in a bag, on the bus, in the car - wherever you are!
