Sprout reads : Early learning at the Museum

A couple of weeks before we came across these brilliant books in our local library, Matt said he found it amazing that Sprout could recognise different representations of a cat and yet know that they were all a cat, despite looking completely different. These marvellous books prove that theory!

We thoroughly enjoyed reading and spotting lots of interesting things in First Words and Animals from The British Museum.

I loved that the Lion was a wood engraving, the horse was a clay figurine from China and the sweet dog on the front cover was a Danish toy from the 1930s. They had some great obscure animals too, like an armadillo and a grasshopper!

I think the back page was Sprout’s favourite, because she could see tiny versions of each animal and point to her favourites. These proved to be the polar bear, the penguin and the two dogs. I loved this page too because I could talk to her about each animal, what they were and where they came from. Processed with VSCO with preset

A really brilliant pair of books, which hint to the fun we will have when Sprout is older, peering into cases at interesting things.
