This is an absolute bargain when you think of the potential help it could bring to young children worried about starting school. It is an interactive text: children engage with a charmingly illustrated story, and can place over 50 stickers into the appropriate places in the text. It is a wonderful way for parents to share with their children what they can expect to experience at school (helping to raise and deal with any fears and concerns), from finding your own peg and hanging up your coat, to painting, dressing up, making things, playtime, music time and home time.
The "I found the duck!" reward stickers are great for encouraging children to really focus and engage with the text as they hunt for the hidden duck. Some of the bigger pictures have pieces missing like a jigsaw, so that the children can complete the picture by finding and placing the correct sticker.
Early Years Educator
This is a beautifully illustrated story, sticker and puzzle book all in one. A great way to help younger readers discuss their first experiences of going to school.

Young children love sticker books and this particular title makes a great addition to your craft box if your child is starting school soon. There are over 50 stickers to use, including missing word stickers to help aid early word recognition and literacy.
