Q: Why did DK decide it was time to relaunch the popular “My First” series, which originally published over 25 years ago?

A: DK constantly seeks to improve our books, even those that are successful already. Reviewing our backlist is part of a process and we felt it was time to relaunch the “My First” series for a new generation.

Q: What can parents expect from this refresh of the “My First” series?

A: We are updating all the photographsand considering new ideas and ways to approach the subjects we know babies and toddlers love.We've also added a slight sparkly effect on the covers for tactile appeal.

Q: Which attributes did you retain from the original books?

A: We've retained DK's signature clear, bright and bold visual design with images that engage and stimulate young children.

Q: How does the “My First” series prepare toddlers, ages 2 to 4, for reading readiness?

A: A “My First” book creates a vivid association between the word and a realistic picture of the object. Every full-color image has a simple word label to promote early readying. The series serve as excellent early information books and help build vocabulary and language skills.

Q: What qualities about the “My First” series set it apart from other board books on the market?

A: DK's special photography and clear layouts make the “My First” series quite different from the traditional illustrative approach. The images help children to recognize the world around them in the pages of a book. The wide scope of topics means there is something to interest every child and the books have a collectable, charming quality.

Q: What makes the “My First” series an ideal early-learning library for toddlers?

A: Toddlers find the size of the “My First” books easy to handle and use. They want to look at the pictures and hear the names of the objects read out to them. The life-like images are carefully chosen to appeal to toddlers and the subjects reflect their interests.Aspirational and informative, the “My First” series are also perfect for parents and children to share together.

A: We are considering the following topics for the next round of publishing: Farm, Tractor, Body, Dinosaur, Pets, and Things that go.

Q: What new features of the “My First” series will appeal most to budding readers?

A: The fresh, new photographs, re-vamped livery, and the use of some scenes, to give the subjects contextand make them come alive will certainly appeal to new readers. We've included pictures of children in action to encourage interest and interaction. Children identify with images of other children.

Q: Can you list some helpful tips for choosing the right books for a young child?

A: Listen and watch out for the child's interests, choose books that they want to pick up and use.

The first 3 colors were good bucause the entire screen was that colo. However, the rest of the colors were not like that. They show multiple things with the same color, whitch is still good but not what i was looking for

I love this vibrantly colored book. My daughter has enjoyed it so much, I ran out and bought a second one when the first one disappeared. It includes some colors that other books omit, such as silver and gold. The only missing color is gray, but it's still the most comprehensive color board book I've come across.

Even though I am 16, I still think that this book of colors is better than Harry Potter!!!!!! I really enjoyed it, especially when it talked about my favorite color, blue! This book inspires me to be the best I can be. I cried when I read it because I remembered my childhood days of learning colors. I just hope you read this fantastic book!!!!!!

Summary:This is a book about colors. It shows colors and a picture of something that relates to that specific color. This would be a good book for toddlers who may be starting to learn their colors.Personal Reaction:This book has big pictures with bright colors that may help the kids focus the book better. Classroom Extension Ideas:1. You could use note cards with the color on one side and a pictue on the other and use it with the class.2. you could ask the children what their favorite color is and have them color or draw a picture that may be related to that color.

This book starts out with each page with a different color and with each color it has something that relates to the color. I find this very good for colors and i recommend this book for beginning to learn your colors.

I purchased the entire (body, words, colors, animals, etc.) collection for my grandson who is just over a year. These books are indicated as great "first" books for children up to 2 years old. They are completely misrepresented. The pictures are unengaging and there are far too many words on each page and/or picture. Tiny print with lines pointing everywhere - it's like a mini science book with diagrams and pictures more appropriate for children in kindergarten, or possibly ages 3-4. Grandpa and I both were very disappointed and found them to not be engaging in any way when we sat with them and tried to read them with our grandson. It isn't that he doesn't engage with other books, because he does and he enjoys them, but these were in no way interesting to him.

This book was bought for my almost 2 year old twin boys, Owen and Brooks. For such young boys they are so interested in things especially books. The colors were bright so they noticed things in the book.

Great book to read to your baby or toddler. They see the colors and know that's what you are talking about. All the board books are great. I have this one for my son as well as well the board books for numbers and ABCs. These board books are the best. I recommend them all. They are even small enough to fit in your diaper bag or purse to carry along for entertainment. 5 stars!

I bought this book for my 1 year old grandaughter and she loves it and carries it around with her continually. The pictures are true to life and help with object identifcation and with color recognition. The book is a board book and smaller size which makes it ideal as a first book for little children.
