ReadItDaddy's Book of the Week - Week Ending 24th January 2020: "Search and Find a Number of Numbers" by A.J Wood and Allan Sanders (Wide Eyed Editions)

Wide Eyed effortlessly bag their first Book of the Week of 2020 with a book that we road-tested with our guest star mini book-blogger, C's 5 year old cousin. She loves maths and numbers already, and really loved this fantastic cross between a 'find the hidden objects' book and a counting book.

"Search and Find: A Number of Numbers" by A.J Wood and Allan Sanders is a huge amount of fun, filled with numbers of course but also filled with exquisitely detailed scenes, and a ton of fun characters to make this far more than just a 'by the numbers' learning experience (did you see what we did there?)

There are 26 fun page spreads with the usual numbers 1 to 10 and beyond, right up to a fantastically detailed spread containing 100 objects for you to discover.

There are also quirky extra things to find, and if you get to the back of the book, even more suggestions for things you may have missed (which caused squeals of delight from our guest little miss when we shared the book with her).

It's a large format book, which means it's perfect for sprawling out on the floor with to fully enjoy all the exquisite little sight gags and details that A.J and Allan have crammed into this one.

Absolutely brilliant stuff for early years, and far more fun than those dull books that just count from one to ten!

Sum this book up in a sentence: A fun-filled slice of numerical awesomeness to kick off 2020 in grand style, making learning your numbers a huge amount of fun!

"Search and Find: A Number of Numbers" by A.J Wood and Allan Sanders is out now, published by Wide Eyed Editions (kindly supplied for review).
