A strong vocabulary is crucial for the development of linguistic and reading skills in children. It is easier for children to understand what they are reading if they are able to associate it with the object being spoken about. My First Word Book intends to introduce children to new words so that they can exhibit an enriched vocabulary. The book aims to accomplish this task by employing the method of word-picture association. Children find it easier to learn words if they are provided something to associate them with. Everyday things that they see, the people they interact with, the places they visit, the food they eat—can all be identified with words. My First Word Book enables children to learn all these words so that they can use them to express themselves more articulately.
"The book enhances vocabulary-building in children.
1. Use of the method of word-picture association makes it easier for children to identify objects.
2. Colourful illustrations make learning new words doubly interesting.
3. The wide variety of activities in the book makes the learning experience dynamic.
4. The activities lend the book versatility as children can develop, apart from their linguistic skills, logical thinking, observational skills and fine motor skills."
