MY FIRST BRAIN QUEST FIRST WORDS AROUND THE HOME is an educational book that allows young children to interact and explore with a family home. The book begins outside of the home, exploring the exterior and the garage, before heading inside to look at the kitchen, living room, hallway, bedroom, and bathroom. It then heads back outside to the garden, shed, and family who lives there. Each page features short sentences, labeled objects, and questions to allow children to explore the scene.

What I loved: The images are full of colors and details, giving children much to look at on each page. The labeled objects and things are helpful for early word recognition, which is always great to see. The questions will need to be asked and answered alongside caregivers, to help solve them together. Some questions relate to searching for specific things, counting, identifying colors, recognizing sounds, and other thoughtful things on each scene. This guided exploration works well for early learning alongside caregivers and will make this work well for toddlers and preschoolers.

What left me wanting more: As a small thing, it would be helpful to have the answers to the questions. This would help for preschoolers to explore on their own with an answer guide for caregivers to help them determine if the answers are correct or to confirm what caregivers believe. While most questions are obvious, some are a bit trickier, such as what starts with a /k/ sound in the living room, as caregivers may not be as familiar with phonetics, and this seems to be curtain, couch, and clock (though I guess maybe cushion, unlabeled, may work too?), but there are no k-words.

Final verdict: An educational exploration of home, MY FIRST BRAIN QUEST FIRST WORDS: AROUND THE HOME is a colorful book that encourages caregivers and little ones to learn together.
