My Big Barefoot Book of Wonderful Words
Seeing new things and learning new words opens so many doors for children! With this unique book, youngsters follow a bustling family through their busy day. The story unfolds through simple header sentences and bright, detailed illustrations.
Each scene is teeming with people, places and things. But what makes this book really different is that each of the narrative, "real world" scenes is followed and further developed by an abstract, interactive one. After the family gets dressed, for example, the readers are invited to choose their own outfits from a global closet of clothing. This alternating pattern enables the theme of each "real world" scene to be amplified, and gives the book a simple, repetitive rhythm.
• Literacy: Includes illustrations for over 700 items on themes like animals, home, food, jobs and familiar places, to build vocabulary, introduce eco-friendly lifestyle choices and promote literacy

• Endless Enjoyability: Clever, detailed scenes offer new ideas for families to explore and share every time they open the book
