Oh oh oh!!! I have a great review and giveaway for you today. Let’s welcome in spring!!!! Two lovely books and a stamp kit! Do note that this giveaway is only for my fellow Canadians 18+.
Animals of the Savanna
The first of the two nature sticker activity books, Animals of the Savannah is a romp through the Savannah of Africa. You get to meet lions, leopards, zebras, baboons, secretary birds, boa constrictors and more.
Each page has a variety of activities to go with it. Sometimes it involves attaching stickers. These stickers are found on a two-page spread in the middle of the book. Other times the reader is invited to colour, to finish an image, or change something about an animal.
Each page introduces you to small details about the animals found on the page. “Baby baboons are covered with black hair. They spend the first months of their lives clinging to their mothers. They play with each other and have fun pulling each other’s tails. The whole troop spends the night in the same tree.”.
Each of the activities has a circle in front which indicates the type of activity. A pencil crayon for colouring, and a bird for other actions.
In the Forest
Another in the My Nature Activity Book Series is In the Forest. In the Forest is laid out just the same as Animals of the Savanna. Sticker page in the middle with options to colour, draw, sticker and otherwise interact with different forest elements.
Readers are given the option to test their knowledge at the close of the book.
In the Forest doesn’t just focus on one type of forest, but features animals from forests around the world. This means you’ll find ponds with frogs, pandas in a bamboo forest, and strawberries in the undergrowth.
The perfect compliment to this sticker activity books is stamp bugs. 25 stamps along with 2 stamp pads, allows children to create a multitude of bugs to complement their studies of forests and the Savanna.
This kit comes complete with an instructional pad to kickstart ideas about bugs to create. The cleanly cut stamps feature bodies, legs, and antenna giving the creator a good variety of bugs to imagine.
These three items are geared to ages 5-8 or so. They would make a lovely addition to any sort of nature study, or simply just to amuse children who enjoy nature, or stickers or colouring. The sticker activity books are made on a sturdy paper that will hold colour and stickers well. Once the stickers are placed on, they won’t come off again.
