My First Slide & Seek - 100 Words

My First Slide and Seek: 100 Words is a colorful and interactive picture book that will help your child increase their vocabulary while making connections between the written word and everyday images.

As a reading teacher and homeschooling parent I'm always on the lookout for books that help kids get excited about reading!

I love it when there are books that offer a fun twist and a way to keep young learners thinking, talking and having fun while turning the pages!

I'm pretty fussy when it comes to educational books. There are many books on the market and my standards are high for giving a book a thumbs-up!

Here are the top 5 reasons why I liked My First Slide and Seek: 100 Words:

1. It Has a Sturdy Design.

Any book that has any moving parts should be sturdy enough to withstand being read over and over!

Nothing drives me crazier than an interactive book that can't handle the lifting of the flaps, pulling the tabs or turning of the pages!

This book has full-page pull tabs that are designed to withstand plenty of use and are cleverly tucked within two pages to stay protected and make it durable.

2. The Categories are Simple and Relatable.

100 words with accompanying pictures are divided up into seven categories that all kids can identify and relate to.

Animals, clothing, food, playtime and more are topics that kids will recognize, have fun identifying and make learning to read a very attainable goal.

3. The Images are Bright, Colorful and Cheery!

This book's pages give young readers plenty of pictures to point to, talk about and hold their attention!

4. It Has Great Prompts!

Every page has several questions and/or prompts that make this book both a game and a perfect opportunity for interactive learning!

It includes simple questions like, 'What are our names?' to seek and find prompts 'One picture begins with the letter c - what am I?' to opportunities for discussion: 'What is your favorite animal?' and even I-spy play 'Can you find the hidden mouse?'

This book packs a lot of learning opportunities within its pages!

My First Slide and Seek also makes it super easy for anyone to sit down with a PreK-K/1 child and guide them to really learn about the words and pictures and develop their thinking and speaking skills!

Talking about what your child has read is super important! It brings what they read to life and helps make connections and which makes books meaningful and interesting to them.

5. My First Slide and Seek is also a great jumping off point to keep the learning -and fun- going!

Here are just some ideas for extending the learning in this book:

  • Use one of the topics/pages as a scavenger hunt - i.e. How many items can you find from the Playtime page?

  • Select a page and ask your child/student to point to everything on this page that's yellow, has a face or is a favorite, etc..

  • Using the book as a guide, write down the words on post it notes from one of the pages (such as 'At home') and stick the notes on the same objects in your house as is seen in the book (TV, computer, chair).

  • Make up stories using the pictures from individual or combined topics/pages!

So, if you're looking for a book that will help your PreK - K/1 learner with their letter recognition, reading, vocabulary and give you plenty of opportunities for real world learning and fun, My First Slide and Seek: 100 Words will be a great choice to add to your bookshelf!
