Let’s Learn Word Families includes tools for teachers and caregivers as well as introductory nonfiction features such as labels, a table of contents, words to know, and an index. A Let’s Review! feature poses an image and question for further comprehension. Let’s Learn Word Families is part of Jump!’s Fun First Concepts series.

Fun First Concepts - Reviewed by School Library Journal

Directions, opposites, patterns, and word families are explored in the latest installations of the “Fun First Concepts” series. Each title presents several real-world examples of the concept, which allows readers to explore these ideas in a setting they already understand (“The sand is hot. The water is cold”). Along with a short, simple sentence, page layouts include a bright, high-interest photograph with a label. This thoughtful correlation between images and text helps beginning readers build their comprehension. Before and after reading activities are provided, which are easy for teachers and caregivers to use and ask readers to notice and reinforce the ideas they learned around them. A review activity and index are provided at the end of each title. VERDICT These slim volumes are well crafted for beginning readers and present important early learning concepts in authentic settings.
