Editorial Reviews

The 30 photographs here demonstrate that even children who can't yet read a book understand many of the words they see around them. The quality of the pictures is very good. They are nicely composed, clear, and often colorful.


Carefully choreographed spreads teach themes or concepts, whether featuring a red car under an “enter” sign and another at an “exit” sign or a spread of pizza and ice cream vendors.
