This new edition of In the Town brings the joys of first words and pictures to young children in a beautiful picture book with a contemporary look and feel. The book gives a close-up view of life in a town with scenes from the everyday life of a child who walks to school, looks for fruit orcakes in the supermarket, visits a museum or goes skating in the park. Alongside the pictures are a wide range of words on all these themes relating to the child's surroundings. With buildings, bridges, train stations, car parks, market stalls, parks, playgrounds, fire engines, balloons and cementmixers, the book abounds with colourful scenes and a variety of words from the exciting world of the town to build vocabulary.Illustrated by well-loved picture book artist Benedict Blathwayt, every topic has detailed and intricate pictures and special words and vignettes to pick out the features of each scene. The book now also includes two new fun word hunt activities that help parents and children to explore the booktogether, linking in with the goals of early learning through play as included in the national curriculum. It is the perfect way to share the joys of building first reading skills through a beautiful and colourful picture book.
