My Kindergarten in 100 Words (My World in 100 Words)
My Kindergarten in 100 words introduces a range of different scenes and objects, from getting dressed and eating breakfast with the family to different activities at kindergarten—including playtime, circle time, and arts and crafts—and then home time. Along with the objects, each scene contains one feeling word and one action word to spot, such as excited and laughing—color-coded circles point them out. With bold colors and a silky-feel cover that add visual and tactile interest, this fun book inspires a deeper knowledge of the world, introduces language skills, and supports emotional intelligence.
An original, contemporary take on teaching first words, the My World in 100 Words series of board books helps children ages 1–3 boost vocabulary, engage with the world around them, and become familiar with specific subjects. With bright, playful illustrations from Sophie Beer, each book explores a different theme, including starting kindergarten, the garden, and the seaside. With 10 words per page and variation between full scenes and visual lists, there’s plenty for children to look at and enjoy.

About the Author
Sophie Beer (née Blackhall-Cain) is an award-winning illustrator/author living in Brisbane, Australia. She completed a dual degree in Law and Creative Industries with distinction at Queensland University of Technology, but found the whole law thing unutterably dull and now works primarily in children's and editorial illustration. Reveling in color, shape, and texture, she lives by one simple rule: art should never be boring. When she's not illustrating and writing, she thinks a lot about plants, animals, music, and books.
Words, and pictures: two little words that, together, mean a lot. A high-quality imprint for young children, words & pictures was started in 2012. The imprint encapsulates three main focuses: imagination—because opening a book should also open a child's own imagination to possibilities; innovation—because children should be encouraged to create, not imitate; and inspiration—because books should make children want more: more books, more information, more of life itself. words & pictures represents a powerful and positive opportunity to open children's minds to a world of discovery.
