My First Time Board Book: 02/01/10
When it comes to DK books, Harriet is following in her brother's foot steps. A few years ago I was reading (and re-reading!) many of the "My First ... Board Book" series to Sean. Now Harriet has discovered her brother's old books and a stash of them at our local library.
<0789492105>My First Time Board Book by Elizabeth Hester uses the typical brightly colored DK photographs that are always somewhat retro to teach concepts of time. It has pages that show a typical day including waking up, getting dressed, eating breakfast, lunch and dinner, taking a bath and going to bed. There's a page to compare day and night and a page per season.
The book is thirty six pages and nearly everything on every page is labeled. While the text will take less than 30 seconds to read, the labels add a few extra minutes. Sometimes Harriet can drag out the book to a half an hour by asking questions about each and every thing or telling stories about them.
