A playful board book exploring different aspects of a child's home in 100 words.
Bedroom, window, cooker, sofa, garden, family, playing, bedtime… introduce your little ones to the words they'll encounter around them at home, with cute characters, bright colours and playful scenes.
My Home in 100 Words introduces a range of different scenes and objects, from eating in the kitchen to bubbles in the bathroom, and windows to armchairs. Along with the home items, each scene contains one feeling word and one action word to spot, such as happy and hiding - colour-coded circles point them out. With a bright cover that adds visual and tactile interest, this fun book inspires a deeper knowledge of the world, introduces language skills and supports emotional intelligence.
