The fifth book in the Things to Find series centers around the everyday life of a child. It opens with a colorful search-and-find playground, followed by a children's bedroom, the kitchen, an open air market and a supermarket. There's a visit to the pediatrician and double-page spreads of preschool and a swimming pool. The zoo, train station and work on a construction site are also included. Every double page has a column on the left side with small images showing what can be found in the large Search-and-Find scene.

About the Series

The popular books from the successful “Things to Find” series allow children as young as 2 to playfully explore the world. These books about the most important topics for children feature numerous images of things to find on the edges of the pages, encouraging children to recognise and name things. Incidentally, this also inspires them to freely tell their first stories, optimally supporting language acquisition. Finding items in the search-and-find images provides children with a first sense of achievement and boosts their confidence.
