LoveReading View on Amazing Machines First Words

This large format board book with its clever round tabs is a great first book to share with pre-school age children. Ten spreads take us to various locations – city, farm, airport and more. In each picture there are bright objects to spot and name and particularly cheery animal characters going about their daily business, waiting at the bus stop, driving a combine harvester, checking in at the airport. Everything is clearly labelled and while there’s no narrative there’s lots of action and the opportunity to talk about what’s going on.  Questions challenge the reader to find and count specific items. Vehicles and machines have a starring role in the illustrations too and this will particularly appeal to youngsters with a passion for modes of transport.

There's a companion title, Amazing Machines First Numbers too!

Robust, easy-to-hold tabs along the top and side guide young hands to each page. Ten colourful scenes help with vocabulary, and questions on each page encourage children to investigate further.
