This week in the baby book world, we’re focusing on a board book that helps young babies to develop language skills. “First 100 Words” is a resource book for parents to enjoy with their baby in developing their first words. This isn’t a one time read, it’s something that can be used everyday! We even pack it in the car to use on the go.
Why I love this book?
- helps to develop early language skills
- helps to start conversation with baby and adult
- implements learning about categories
- helps to make connections between similar things
- helps babies to start to understand similarities and differences between things
- helps babies to learn about real everyday items
- this is a book that doesn’t have to be read all at once, you can reference back to it many times

Amazon is a great place to purchase books, especially for busy mamas. It’s also fun to have a package arrive! (I still get a thrill out of receiving packages.) Did I mention this book is a #1 Best Seller on Amazon? Here is the link to purchase ” First 100 Words” published by Priddy Books.
Activities to Participate In
- go on a scavenger hunt and find things in the house that you read in the book. For example if you were focusing on the category of bath items, take a “field trip” into the bathroom and point to the items. Then have your baby hold it and you can talk about its features. Make sure to refer back to the book. Repetition is so important for babies, along with the tactile experience.
18 months-3 years
- have your child go on a scavenger hunt in your house, they will be the leader to identify household items. Make sure the adult brings a paper and pencil to write these items down. Then go back to the book and ask “Where which category would this item fit in? Have your child explore the book and find the category page.
