Usborne very first words Christmas -

Little children will love learning their first Christmas words as they enjoy each delightful festive scene. Scenes include decorating the tree, getting ready for Santa and Santa on the roof, all enchantingly illustrated by Rosalinde Bonnet.

This is a lovely, brightly coloured book full of bright pictures which will attract young children's attention. It is a board book and therefore suitable for even the most youngest of children.

There are six double pages: Christmas is coming, Decorating the tree, Ready for Santa, Santa in his sleigh, Santa on the roof and Opening presents. Each double page picture has a large picture with many individual details labelled. There are many children included within the pictures and they are from many ethnicity.

This book would be an ideal gift for a child celebrating their first Christmas or for a slightly older child who is beginning to understand more about the festive period and begins to learn words. I like these books as they encourage children to learn new vocabulary and be able to vocalise their thoughts. As a mum who has a child with speech difficulties, I personally like these books as they have lots of elements in the pictures which can be talked about with the child, encouraging them to speak.

Thank you to Amy from Usborne for sending me this book to review.
