Using colour photographs of simple everyday things, like 'spoon' and 'bath' and 'toes' and 'teddy' (every one of them a word within the experience of small children), these two delightful books give positive help towards language development. The pictures are modern (i.e. the clothes are up to date, the bike and the swing and the push chair this year's model); the mother puts petrol into the car and the little boy pushes the dolly in the push chair. This attention to detail is very valuable and makes the books particularly good at stimulating the child to notice the pictures and comment on each one as the adult points and reads out the simple texts.
