Words & Pictures Preschool Books {Review & Giveaway}

Disclosure: We were sent the Words & Pictures Books free for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own. See our disclosure policy for more information.

It’s never too early to introduce babies and toddlers to books, in fact, the earlier you do the better. Reading books to your baby provides perfect one-to-one time, the sound of your voice and the warmth from your body reinforces that reading is a pleasurable activity. Books are also amazing developmental tools for your baby too, they encourage hand-eye coordination, offer tactile and sensory opportunities and build cognitive skills to name a few.

Words & Pictures have a new range of beautiful, colourful board books published by Quarto, designed especially for preschoolers to discover and explore the world around them. We were sent a lovely bundle of books to review and we also have a set to giveaway to our readers.

Words & Pictures Preschool Board Books

Tales From Nature

Brand new to the Tales From Nature series are Bee and Ladybird. The bright and colourful illustrations perfectly introduce little ones to nature.

Ladybird by Magali Attiogbe

This colourful tale follows the journey of Ladybird through the garden. Simple text introduces us to the ladybird, what they like to eat, why gardeners love them and even asks you the reader where you think they should lay their eggs. I love that this book is teaching children snippets of nature facts in a fun and imaginative way.

Through windows and flaps, little ones can guess what is going to happen next in the story.  The thick pages are also perfect for little hands to turn.

Bee by Magali Attiogbe

In this book, we follow the Bee as it goes about its day looking for flowers to collect nectar from. We learn all about the beehive, how it’s protected and where the queen bee lays her eggs. I love the illustrations in this book, the colours are beautiful and the characters are fun, I especially love the illustrators’ use of different facial expression on the bees in the hive.

Peep Through First Concepts

First Word by Jane Ormes

First Words is the ideal book to introduce early learning, it encourages vocabulary using objects and animals from everyday life. The illustrations are bold and colourful and are accompanied by simple text. There’s a little peep through hole on each page which adds an extra dimension.  The pages are sturdy and thick which is an essential feature of board books in my opinion.

Count 1 2 3 by Jane Ormes

Count 1 2 3 introduces little ones to numbers and counting using animals and the natural world. I think the illustrations in the book are just adorable, I especially loved the animal characters. This is a great interactive book, perfect for sharing together.

First Concept Bath Books 

Shapes and Colours by Ana Seixas

With bold graphics and bright colours, these fun bath books are a brilliant way to introduce first concepts to your little ones. I love the fun graphics in these books and how tactile, super soft and squishy they are.
