New review: Early Learning at the British Museum with Nosy Crow

Two more gorgeous board books are now available in the collaborative series between The British Museum and Nosy Crow.  Each book is inspired by the vast British Museum collection and celebrates cultures from all over the world.  As museums across the world are celebrated on International Museum Day, these books are a great way to introduce history to young children and perhaps even follow-up with a visit to the museum itself!

New Review: Early learning at the Museum

Nosy Crow and the British Museum are working in partnership to produce a range of books for children aged 0-12.  Early Learning at the Museum – ABC and 123 are among the first to be released, the idea being to encourage young children to engage with early learning concepts.

A whole lot more than your average counting or alphabet book, these lovely board books celebrate the wonderful artefacts that can be found at the museum and indeed from around the world.

As well as teaching children number sequences and letters and words, they show some of the amazing objects that make up the museum’s collections. The lovely colourful photographs celebrate many cultures introducing little ones to the idea of the similarities and differences we share.

A helpful index at the back of the book shows where and when each item is from.  Children and adults alike can marvel at the wonders from around the world and learn even more by using the QR code at the back of the book to visit the website – or perhaps even plan a visit to the museum itself!  A great opportunity for early learning and encouraging curiosity, these are well worth adding to your little ones bookshelf.
