Space: Seek and find activity book ill. by Emiliano Magliardo

Bloomsbury, 2016. ISBN 9781408870037
(Age: 5-7) Recommended. Themes: Space; Seek and Find. This is a simple 'Seek and Find' concept book with a Space theme. Each double page contains a simple factual paragraph and then humourous cartoon-style illustrations which are crowded with fun and sometimes ridiculous detail for a young reader to search and investigate. A single text question on the featured page gives instructions for something to find, but also each double page includes 10 smaller pictures to locate from within the larger complex illustration.
Recommended - as a book to share with pre-readers or for early independent readers. It will fill those moments when adults need a bit of focused quiet time!
