“First word books are surprisingly tricky to get right, all too often sacrificing accessibility for style, or vice versa. This, from homewares designer Underwood, manages to be both aesthetically pleasing and child-friendly.”

– Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

“A thoughtfully compiled intro to first words. With arty illustrations depicting familiar and less familiar objects and scenarios, this book will be enjoyed over and over.”

– Emma O’Donovan, Baby Magazine

“The layout is fresh and stylish with bright and tasteful colours… Ideal for baby’s nursery or in a toddler’s hand it also looks great and aesthetically pleasing on a coffee table for grown-ups.”

– Folded Corners (blog)

“The brightly coloured images are seductively arranged in a mosaic of contrastingly coloured frames of varying sizes.”
