First Words and Pictures: Around Town
This is an ideal first book for very young readers, containing more than 100 words. It is filled with delightful art work of the places found around an ordinary town, as well as their names. It is designed to help infants embark on a lifetime of reading, introducing them to basic concepts of literacy, the alphabet and everyday life. Reading the text helps to familiarise babies with the patterns of speech. Talking and reading go together and this helps a baby to listen. Listening and talking help lay the foundations for language development.
