Book Review | The British Museum

Nosy Crow publishers have teamed up with the British Museum to create these really different picture books for young children, introducing early concepts, and using stunning images of objects and artefacts in the British Museum collections.

Mixed up masterpieces takes images of museum pieces and puts them together in a flip-flap, mix-up, sturdy board book where the faces can be mixed and matched or put back together in up to 2000 combinations!  It's a great way to explore art from around the world.

Early concepts are explored the four picture board books also using delightful images of pieces in the museum's collections.  We can explore colours, opposites, 123 and ABC using works of art, items of clothing, sculpture, detail from paintings, coins, jewellery, silver and gold.

These books are unique and fascinating, and will engage even the smallest children with the bright colours and interesting images.  And mixing up the funny faces will amuse young and old together.  Adults can have fun answering children's questions using extra information about the objects by scanning the QR codes in each book (I learnt how to do this yesterday...)
