Introducing Usborne Books + a sticker book review!

Saturday, 29 October 2016

One of my favourite things to do is snuggle up on the sofa and read with Jellybean. I get excited when the colder weather rolls around purely for the idea of laying on the sofa together under a blanket and reading, until one of us (usually me) starts to nod off.

I love this special time together, partly because it's a sneaky way to get cuddles with my daughter, but partly because stories mean so much to me. It feels like a privilege to pass on that joyful feeling of entering another world, allowing words and pictures to shape your imagination and allow a moment of wonder and escape from reality.

I am excited to announce that I will be linking up with Sarah Keeler, a representative from Usborne Books, to review some lovely children's books and to help promote the importance of reading with children. Sarah is an ex-teacher and passionate about encouraging children to enjoy books. She will be sending me some lovely Usborne books for Jellybean and I to enjoy together!

I'll be kicking off this series with a review of this lovely book:

Jellybean loves animals so this book is perfect for her. She's getting to the age where she cares a bit more about where each sticker belongs now, which is just a bit less frustrating than the stick-them-all-on-top-of-each-other stage she was in before.

We had a lot of chats about the things we saw at the zoo when we went for her birthday:

'Mama, on my birthday at the zoo the elephants were splashing in the water!'

And it also kept her occupied whilst waiting for a long time for me to have an appointment at the hospital, which was really handy.

What I like about this book is that the stickers are really easy to peel off (good for toddlers) and you can also easily rip out the actual sticker pages which makes it easier to use. They also look nice enough to keep and flick through afterwards. If you're looking for some quiet time activity books I'd definitely recommend it!

You can buy First Sticker Book: Zoo and similar books on Sarah's Usborne store. Thank you again Sarah for the freebie and for helping me to keep a very bored toddler happy!

  1. Looks a lovely book. My grandson is still at the 'stick the stickers anywhere' stage so maybe I'll wait a little longer for this book :-)

    1. My daughter was at that stage for a long time ... I used to just look away and pretend I didn't mind ;) x

  2. We used to love sticker books Meg. Look forward to reading your reviews on the Usborne books you get sent. x

    1. Thank you :) I do love a good sticker book for keeping little ones occupied! x
