Technicolour Treasure Hunt

Learn to count from one to ten with this nature-inspired treasure hunt. Design house Hvass&Hannibal have arranged their stylish spreads according to the seven colours of the rainbow. Young readers will encounter over 70 first words, mostly based on flora and fauna. The spreads feature groupings of the associated objects for readers to find and count. There is a great variety of words and objects here, from the basic offerings (apples, ducklings, bluebells) to the more unexpected (aubergines, cockatoos, corals).

The digitally textured illustrations are lively and eye-catching. Although each page is limited to a single hue, the various shades ensure variety and the technicolour palette is wonderfully bright and vibrant. The book is well organised, from the colour-coded tabs to the arrangement of objects. The chunky pages of this boardbook are also ideal for little hands and repeated readings.

Fans will be glad to know that Hvass&Hannibal have also created Patterntastic Treasure Hunt, a complementary seek-and-find boardbook in which readers learn new words through patterns instead of colours.

Visual learning and early education made fun, engaging and stylish!
