Front cover is so cute..




This is the scene that I like most cause I can teach my daughter names of vegetables and fruits.

I can use this scene to teach color and by the way this scene is lovely.

My Review: My friend gave me a collection of preloved baby books and this book is one of them. The condition of the book is not okay at first but then me and my husband repaired the book and now its really useful to us. You can see the black tapes that we used to bind the book. This book is huge enough that my 8 months old daughter like to sit on it while she's looking at the graphic. It has 7 scenes that is colorful but I think my daughter will take time to get used to this book cause it's just too many items in the scenes. And I believe that's the challenge to look and find which is suitable for older baby and toddler. Nevertheless, I like the scenes cause it seems related to its show and this book made me really eager to have more Dora the Explorer stuff.

My Review: I'm quite frustrated with this book because I think the Malay language used in this book is not grammatically correct. However, the graphic is fine to me and this book is handy.There are 7 scenes involving the characters from The Lion King, Finding Nemo, Monster, Inc. etc.So, I guess this book is worth my money.

Again,I am sorry with poor quality pictures that I've taken with my phone camera.

My Review: The songs inside this book are difficult for me to catch up the rhythms except for Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Maybe that's why this book is recommended for 3 years and above. It seems that my 8 months old daughter likes to look at the graphic even me myself does not fancy with that. But who knows kid, right? Again, I'm sorry for poor quality pictures that I've taken with my phone camera.

My review: I think this book is absolutely suitable for my 8 months daughter cause it has touch and feel features.My daughter loves to play with the horses' hair and the sound that comes with the book will make my reading becomes interesting even though now she doesn't react much to that sound. But we'll see later since this book is recommended for 18 months and above.However for graphic my daughter sure loves it since she keep looking at it. And again I'm sorry for poor quality pictures that I've taken with phone camera. Hope your child enjoy this book!

Front Cover

Ooohh I absolutely love this book,so does my 8-months old daughter. To me Sofia the first herself is so cute and beautiful and the illustration in this book is so lovely.I love everything inside it. Even though the songs might not be related with the Sofia the First story but its okay for me cause my daughter wouldn't know that. :) She is just attracted to the illustration and the graphic and sometimes really chased the book when I tried to hide the book.Not the same as she treats other book.

I've taken all the pictures taken with my handphone camera.I'm sorry its poor quality but I hope it doesn't stop you from loving this book.
