Your Baby’s First Word Will be DADA

Your Baby’s First Word Will be DADA Review

Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC’s The Tonight Show, did everything in his power to ensure that his daughter’s first word was “dada”, and this book was one of the ways he tried to achieve it!

The book is very short, with perhaps 20 words, at least half of which are “dada”. The parents we talked to were divided over whether this book worked in the way that Jimmy wanted it to, but all agreed that it was a great read!

The story is simple but enjoyable, and has plenty of shout-a-long bits that make reading time really fun. In addition, the animal characters in the book are really well designed, and very engaging for your little one.

In addition, the book has several other features to recommend it:

PROS
  • The graphic design on this book is very modern, and almost perfect. The characters, which consist of a series of animal fathers and their children, are all great – clearly drawn, and colorful.
  • The animal theme also gives parents a chance to work on that all important skill – animal sounds! This is the central idea of the book – whilst you try to get your kid to say DADA, they shout MOO back at you!
  • The simplicity of the book is its strength. Whilst there is no real story to speak of, parents are free to improvise, and having such great pictures of all kinds of animals is really helpful for having a focus!
  • We are not sure if the book will ensure that your child’s first word is DADA, but it will certainly teach them a lot of other words, and all the animal sounds!
CONS
  • Some parents we spoke to thought that the book should have more of a narrative structure. Without wishing to be mean, we think that this criticism is more to do with them than their children – it can perhaps be boring for a dad to read a simplistic story over and over again, but we assure you that for your child it is not!
