I loved this book! Each number has its own page, full of things to look at and count. The illustrations are brilliant: quirky and fun and the text is funny and engaging. I can't wait to add this book (and its companion alphabet book) to our school collection.

Most fun search and find since Where's Waldo. Can't wait to add this to our family book collection. Another great book from Wide-Eyed.

This book provides a fun way to consolidate the skills involved in learning to count.  It starts with one, of course, and by the end of this title gets to 100.  Along the way, children will find many things to count and look for.  This title makes counting fun and I think that children will enjoy it.  The illustrations are appropriately complex, fun and colorful. 


Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.

A wonderful, splendidly illustrated hidden object book! A perfect number and object primer for toddlers, a fantastic collection of look-and-find scenes for children, and a delightful experience for visual readers of all ages.

Search and Find A Number of Numbers is a fun book for children to play I spy and count objects. The complexity of the illustrations progressively increases and makes for a wonderful learning tool.. Targeted at 3 to 7 years old, this book is a wonderful addition to your child's library that seamlessly mixes learning with play. This book follows author's previous work An Alphabet of Alphabets with similar theme. The visuals are stunning and complex and add some of them have a very vintage feel thus making it attractive to adults as well..

Highly recommended!

I thought that this book was excellent!

I liked the layout of the book, it was good fun to do with my daughter and as an adult I really enjoyed it.  It was a fun way to pass the time and she really enjoyed finding and searching for the numbers and the lists on each page too.

It is 5 stars from me for this one, I love books like this!!  

Very highly recommended!!

I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers.

This book is bright and colourful and each page is different with different things to find. My 6 year old really enjoyed it and as a Teaching Assistant I found the book to be a great repetitive counting book for little minds learning to count and recognise numbers. 
We thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Now this looked to be thoroughly successful.  I can't prove it can teach you to count, because I learnt some time ago, and I don't have a young human to borrow for scientific purposes, but my guess is this should be a hit.  Starting with a simple instance of an image with lots of 'ones' in it – a monocle, a unicycle etc – we go through the numbers up to twenty, busily increasing complexity until we have a heck of a lot of things to spot, and therefore a heck of a lot of counting up to do.  We then leap to fifty, with the map of the US reduced to the state abbreviations, and then one final diorama with something to count a hundred of.  Sometimes things are a little too simplified – in a large image of a farm we see all the carrots we have to tot up in the same patch, and likewise the child using this book on their own will like as not point to all the choristers and say 'found them' rather than practise their numeracy, but that aside this suitably presents a lot of revision of our numbers.  Here's hoping an uncountable number of libraries and schools manage to keep their copies with nothing circled, ticked off or otherwise marked up.

I really liked the concept, art, and execution of this look and find book. I probably won't be reading it with my kids again though because of Noah's Ark being used for the number two. We don't really do religion in our family and it felt out of place in this non-fiction book.
