Every big, detailed picture is accompanied by clear illustrations of each word, with the word underneath. This encourages the direct association of the word with the object, making it easy to learn new words and to reinforce words already known. There are lots of familiar things to find and name, situations to talk about and chances to guess what will happen next. There are also many opportunities for counting groups of objects, and for finding matching pairs.
