I purchased Sticker Dolly Dressing Around the World probably almost a year ago. It sat on the shelf until it seemed like the “right” time to get it out and use it with Caroline. This fall was the right time and so we’ve been enjoying it!
One of the things we like to do as part of our learning is snuggle on the couch and do sticker books together. There are so many educational ones out there. They are a great starting point for discussing different topics. Sticker books also work great for children who have busy hands, busy mouths and aren’t necessarily fond of writing. You can do lots of talking while doing sticker books together! LOL! We started on sticker books as a learning tool when Caroline was quite young and continue to this day!
Each two page spread features a different culture around the world with a few people that you dress in their native costume or some sort of special event costume. The dolls include both men and women so you see both types of outfits. There is a brief paragraph about the culture that can be enough or a starting point for a more in-depth study.
Many of the stickers do have to be put on in a particular order. The directions are written on each sticker page and are very clear. But you would not be able to turn a three or four year old loose on this alone. Either the child needs to be able to read directions pretty well or else she will need assistance in figuring out what to do.
