Eleven detailed, large format, search-and-find scenes invite children to endless exploration and discovery: at the market, a big construction site, at the zoo and the train station, on a farm and athletic fields, at the airport, and in the city by night. In addition, there are a winter scene and the scene of an accident, a preschool outing in the forest and a harvest festival.
Within each of the lively and detailed spreads, the pictures tell many little stories. The siblings Annika and Nils and their parents are underway in each scene, finding out new things about their surroundings in each one. Rounding off each double spread is a colorful column of small pictures, scenes and objects that children can look for and identify in the larger picture.

About the Series

The "Things to Find" titles playfully convey first factual knowledge. The detailed search-and-find images offer much to discover. The accompanying text always features a search task, prompting children to find the vignettes on the edge of the page in the main image. Labels underneath the search images help name the items.
