Museum 1 2 3

Part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s childrens book series, Museum 1 2 3 is a pretty cool counting book. When James was small(er), we just ran through the numbers, but now that he’s older, he can play the book’s number games using masterpieces from the museum. Maybe your toddler doesn’t really need to learn about ancient Egyptian tomb paintings, but you’d be surprised how interested even a very small child might be. Some of the pages are better than others — it can be quite tricky to find a few of the objects — but there are lots of opportunities to make up your own number puzzles if you don’t like the ones provided. Giggle factor: not applicable. Adult enjoyment: if you like art. Illustrations: c’mon, is anyone going to give Van Gogh less than five jelly jars?
