“First Words Sticker Book (English)”
Bought this book for my 4 yr old who is currently in the nursery class at school. Kept her really absorbed matching the stickers to the words. Really good educational book, but fun as well, I would highly recommend this book to parents of other children this age. Looking to buy some more now!
“first words sticker book (English)”
I sat my 5 year old daughter at the kitchen table with this book, and she was totally engrossed! Apart from wanting to cover everything in stickers at the moment, she is also just reading and writing. She was totally absorbed in the challenge of finding the colour coded stickers, having a go at spelling the words out loud and of course decorating the pages with all the stickers! Meanwhile I was able to get on with preparing the dinner. Highly recommended for keeping somebody busy!
