This week’s children’s book review is a fun one, focusing on 101 stickers! Stone Age by Sophie Beer. It was published by Nosy Crow with the British Museum and can be purchased on Amazon.
The fourth in a series of sticker books developed in consultation with experts from the British Musum, 101 Stickers! Stone Age is filled with facts about a fascinating time in history.
Containing 11 beautiful scenes and 101 stickers, add mammoths to forests, fill caves with people, and much, much more! Then visit an archaeological dig to uncover amazing artefacts, before curating your very own museum exhibit with real-life photographic object stickers from the British Museum collection.
Other titles in the series include: 101 Stickers! Ancient Egypt, 101 Stickers! Ancient Greece, and 101 Stickers! Ancient Rome
History for children can be quite boring, if you expect them to just read books and learn dates. History is such an amazing subject and there’s so much to learn and I want to do everything I can to make learning fun for Erin. 101 stickers! Stone Age is a really fun and interactive way to learn about this time period.
The book has a short introduction on the inside of the front cover, with directions of what to do with the stickers included. I liked that there was a small introduction, just so children could get to know a little bit about what years the Stone Age covered.
There are 11 different sections for children to read through, such as Fighting For Food, In The Fields, By The River and Tools and Craft. Each double page has a small amount of text where you can learn about that particular subject, as well as fantastic illustrations. Each section has small areas where you need to put some stickers. These are easily noticeable and there are prompts on each so you know what sticker you’re supposed to use.
The stickers can be found at the back of the book where the pages have perforated edges so they can be removed easily. The stickers are also labelled so you can use each one according to the section easily. Other helpful resources included an index and a ‘did you spot?’ section for children to do.
