By Elham S. - Published on Amazon.com

This book looks as if someone took stock photos and then ran the words through Google translate. My mother is a native speaker of Farsi, and she identified multiple incorrect words and misspellings. We will be returning it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bi-lingual babies 18 Oct. 2010
By building a nest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
We bought this board book for our three year old daughter. My husband speaks Farsi, I do not. The words are only written in farsi in the book. It would help if there was also a phonetic spelling in English. Also, my husband felt like some of the words were not commonly used or easier versions could be chosen for young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book for Toddlers and Young Kids 28 Mar. 2010
By Artemis Blair - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
I highly recommend this book if you have young children that you'd like to expose to the Farsi language. I purchased this book for my 1 year old son who is half Iranian and half American. Its a great book for introducing children to the Farsi language at a young age. My son loves the bold and bright graphics and the words covered are everyday household items which he is learning to say in both Farsi and English. (Clearly, you or someone in your household needs to speak Farsi in order to read the Farsi words in this book.)

1.0 out of 5 stars Room for improvement 18 May 2011
By Skip - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
My husband is Persian & we bought this with our 2yr old son in mind. I intend learning with him.
As a non-Farsi speaking adult, I am disappointed. The Farsi text is far too small for a youngster, I'm finding it hard enough to distinguish the letters & I specifically wanted to aquaint him with the alphabet.
I'm bilingual & judging by my other books, I suspect the book was originally intended for Persians learning English as the English text is much larger.
There are no phonetics to help non-speakers with pronunciation.
Having said that, I don't fully regret buying it. At least my son is interested in the book, I believe by the bright graphics & the fact that it's a special book only dad can read to him!
I'm also grateful there's something on the market at least.
