A couple of months ago I bought Cakie an Usborne “1,2,3, Sticker Book” while browsing all of the aisles in Sainsburys (ie procrastinating from getting on with the real shopping!)
It was an instant hit and we quickly finished the whole book with lots of requests for “more, more!”
So I searched the selection at Amazon and saw that Usborne have a huge range of sticker books for really young children, with large easy to remove stickers, beautiful “page scenes” to stick them on, and a simple educational purpose for each section.
Rather than buy each different theme eg “Holidays”, “Colours”, “Animals” etc, I found a really big book in Early Learning Centre instead that incorporated all of them into one volume, simply called “My First Sticker Book.” Its promise of having over 500 stickers was just too good to pass up!
In this section she had to stick the objects onto the correct page of the alphabet, according to their initial sounds. Needless to say this was too hard for her, but it was really good for extending vocabulary and comprehension skills. “Stick the mooon on this page”, “stick the kite on that page” etc.
I just bought a sticker book for my 15 ,month old. If he likes it, we’ll try the early learning one too – great recommendation! How old is Cakie here?
And LOVE your blog – thank you for sharing! Will be getting straws and pipe cleaners this pm for discovery boxes…..
