This bright and attractive book introduces the key concept of learning to use words to support your child's early learning. Using familiar animals, objects and concepts each spread takes a thematic approach to learning. Photographs rather than illustrations help to reinforce their learning and the book takes a flexible approach, asking key questions on each page but with enough scope to make up questions of your own.There are four titles in the series, Start To Learn. Alphabet, Numbers, Animals and Words.
