Beautiful photographs, a simple text, and a picture quiz help young children identify and name toys, such as 'train', 'doll', 'kite' and 'bike'.
The first five years of a child's life shape his or her future. The books in this series promote essential early learning skills and help give children the best possible start. Early language and literacy skills are of particular importance. The books in this series foster these emergent skills through:
Building Vocabulary: There is a strong link between vocabulary and reading achievement. The titles in this series introduce children to a wide range of words and concepts. Children who have a rich and diverse vocabulary are better able to understand and use language effectively. They become good communicators and find it easier to make sense of the new words they encounter when they start to read independently.
Developing Print Awareness: The crisp, clear page design makes it easy for children to distinguish between image and text. Hearing the simple text read aloud helps children understand that print has meaning. Later, they can be encouraged to 'read' the text themselves. They may only be repeating it from memory but they are learning that there is a direct relationship between printed words and spoken words.
Encouraging an Enjoyment of Books: It is important that children learn to associate books with pleasure. The greater a child's enjoyment of books, the keener he or she will be to learn to read. The themes explored in this series reflect children's fascination with the world around them, while the detailed, high-quality images capture their interest and invite them to engage with and enjoy the books.
