    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.

  • The Wheels on the Bus

    By Pat-a-Cake, Richard Merritt
    Authors:
    Pat-a-Cake
    Illustrated by:
    Richard Merritt
    The Wheels on the Bus combines lively pictures with a classic rhyme that's easy for parents and carers to recognise and recite. Young children will adore searching the page for flaps to open while singing along as the big bright bus trundles along. The spotting game at the end is a great incentive to go through the pages once again until each tiny thing is found! Nursery Rhymes are important stepping stones to language development. The rhymes usually tell a story, too, with a beginning, a middle and an end. This teaches children that events happen in sequence, and they begin to follow along. Nursery rhymes are also full of repetition making them easy to remember, and often become some of a child's first sentences. Also available: Hey Diddle Diddle, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Old Macdonald had a Farm
