Welcome to Amanda’s Book Pick of the week!

Amanda's Book Pick of the Week

 

This week’s book is called Flaptastic First Words

Flaptastic First Words Cover
Older babies adore vocabulary books! They are a fantastic way for babies to learn about the world around them and to learn language skills.

Flaptastic First Words
The cover of this book has a foam two-dimensional apple which older babies will love to touch, making this book an interactive experience right from the start.

This book is no ordinary vocabulary book! Due to its “flaptastic” nature, this book can easily become an interactive experience for little hands and eyes. The words are in an simple font and are very legible. I love how the objects are real images.

Amanda Signature

I am the Social Media and Community Manager here at MommiesFirst and I am a Mom of two young (ish) children, an Aunt to a wee one and lover of ALL babies! Did you know that I was also a Kindergarten teacher? My favourite time of the day in my classroom was story time!

Each week, I will be sharing a new book from DK Canada. I have a love for baby and children’s books. I love to read them as they make me smile and I love even more to share them with a baby or a child because if you watch carefully, reading a book with a little one truly lights up their little face.

Welcome to Amanda’s Book Pick of the week!  
.  
This week’s book is called noisy peekaboo! Roar! Roar!.

 

 

This book includes 5 lift-the-flap sounds throughout the book. The book includes pictures or real babies and real life items in order to provide baby with a real experience and to encourage vocabulary building skills. I like the repetition throughout the book and the game of peekaboo keeps the baby involved in the book, while they look for various animals. Babies are also provided with the opportunity to learn 5 animal sounds throughout this adorable book.
Like all DK Canada Board Books, this book is well constructed, including the “lift-the-flap” sections. The flaps provide baby with an opportunity to practice their fine motor skills while they play peekaboo looking for specific objects.
