Learn letters and numbers in a fun and original way with Nosy Crow and the British Museum

Even though madame is far too old and sophisticated for board books, we love to see really attractive early years books regardless.

Particularly when they're as amazing as these new titles from Nosy Crow, covering numbers, letters and colours.

In association with The British Museum, Nosy Crow have come up the fantastic idea of delving into the collection's amazing pile of artifacts to bring eye-catching objects into play, so that children can learn their numbers and letters in a fun and engaging way.

"123" and "ABC" are the two titles we took a look at (with a further board book covering colours in a similar way). The books are, as you'd expect from Nosy Crow, of the highest quality and it's a particularly brilliant stroke of genius to use museum objects in this way.

Of course, one of the best things about this book (if you live near enough) is that you can then visit the musem and find the real objects for yourself.

Even if you can't get to London, each book comes with an additional QR code which you can scan with your phone or your tablet to learn even more about the artifacts used in the book.

Again, that's a fantastic way of using the books as a jumping off point for more exciting learning opportunities.

Both books are out now, available from Nosy Crow. Check out their website for more titles.
