Animals are extraordinarily appealing to the youngest children. Their curiosity about other living creatures offers ample opportunity for fun and learning. My First Book of Animals presents a variety of animals in brightly colored photographs, and also provides an opportunity to learn animal body parts and colors: black and white cow with big ears and a tail rooster with feathers and a red comb duck with yellow feet dog with floppy ears donkey and its tail shiny yellow and green goldfish black and white cat white horse with a tail colorful parrot with long tail feathers rabbit and its big ears white sheep goat and its horns and ears. The brightly illustrated, sturdy board books in the My First Book... series (My First Book of Animals, My First Book of Colors, My First Book of Numbers) are designed for the youngest toddlers who are exploring the world from their most comfortable seat -- the floor. Young children can easily open and turn the board pages and then discover that the pages unfold accordion-style into a 42-inch long display. Each book features 12 engaging color photographs in a clutter-free design, making identification easy for a toddler.
