This week’s children’s book review is all about ‘Birch Trees, bluebells and other British plants’ by Nikki Dyson. It was published by Nosy Crow and available to buy on Amazon*.
A beautiful fact-filled sticker book perfect for nature lovers. The sixth in a series of sticker books created with the National Trust, this book is packed with facts about all kinds of British plants and flowers. With four pages of stickers and 11 glorious scenes, you can add bees buzzing around the flowers, underground roots to the mighty oak tree, vegetables growing in the vegetable patch and much, much more! And with a spotter’s guide to help identify favourite species, this is the perfect introduction to wildlife for the very young.
I’ll be honest, there are some things I just don’t know much about and I struggle to help Erin either learn about them or get excited about them. One of these subjects is nature. A fun way for children to learn about something new is through a sticker book like Birch Trees, bluebells and other British plants.
The book has lots of wonderfully illustrated scenes for children to look at, learn from and stick their stickers on. Each page has some information on it and a couple of prompts for what kind of sticker could be added!
The sticker pages are labelled so that you can help children (or do it themselves if an older child) figure out which stickers go on each page. For instance, for the page above the stickers are labelled Terrific Trees as that is what the page is called.
As each different page has a name and stickers to go with it, it is easy to pick up this book and do a little bit at a time. Children can learn about nature and animals without feeling too overwhelmed by having to do a lot in one go.
