The Lovereading4Kids comment

Black, white; empty, full; cold, hot: this striking book introduces children to the concept of opposites, and to simple first words. However, by using objects taken from the collection of the British Museum it will also awaken their curiosity and inspire a first fascination with history. No-one looking at these beautiful objects and paintings could fail to be struck not just by their beauty, but also by the sense of stories they contain (more information is readily available via a QR code printed on the back page). Child-focused and thoroughly useful, this will also be a fascinating book to share with children and should inspire happy visits to museums and galleries. ~ Andrea Reece

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
