Words and Fingerprints

Alphaprints Words by Roger Priddy is a tactile treasure for a baby or toddler. This ten page board book contains colorful pictures. Each picture has a raised fingerprint design which makes the book really exciting for a baby to explore. My ten month old is obsessed with running his finger over the designs.

This book is perfect for teaching a baby or toddler new words. Each page features one word that is paired with an image. Some of the words included in this book are boy, ball, and apple.

To further increase the usefulness of this book, we actually used a pen to write in the Hungarian translations of the book. If you are also trying to raise a bilingual baby, this book is easily translated into a second language.

Even though I love this book, I do feel it is necessary to point out this book is only ten words long. It is INCREDIBLY short. I was lucky enough to pick this book up for $1.49 at Ollie’s. I think that is a reasonable price for the book given how short it is. Had I paid more for this book, I would likely have been disappointed.

If you are looking for a short word book to explore with your baby, I recommend this book.

My kiddos are all fast asleep now, so I just checked our progress. As of today, my son and I have read 405 books together!
