The Ultimate Sticker Book Hack

Sticker books are amazing and some of my very favorite books. They can be entertaining, exciting, teach concepts and ideas in a fun way and so much more. But they can be a little frustrating for some younger bookworms, so check out my ultimate sticker book hack below.

Sticker books are great for keeping little hands busy, especially when you need to get something done, like make dinner, or a phone call, drink some hot coffee.

But sometimes it can get a little frustrating when you have a little one who is not quite ready to do a sticker book on their own. 

If you have a little one who has difficulty, check out these three quick tips:

Tip #1: Pull out the sticker page

Many stickers books come with a perforation on the sticker pages. You can pull out these pages and take the page out completely so your child isn’t having to flip back and forth between the sticker page and the page they are working on. It helps them keep the page they’re working on open, so they aren’t losing their place and getting frustrated.

Tip #2: Pull off the backing of the sticker sheet

Grab the corner of the backing on the sticker sheet and peel it off. You might be able to grab it all in one go, or might have to take it off in a couple of pieces.This makes it SO much easier for your child to be able to take the stickers off by themselves, they can essentially pinch the paper and go instead of trying to use 

Tip #3: A little bit of water…

Have you purchased one of these reusable sticker books? If yes, you won’t want to miss this tip!

Isn’t it the worst when your child is trying to do stickers, but drops it somewhere, even if it’s sparkly clean, that just HAPPENS to have some pet fur or other substance that renders a sticker useless? These books make that a non-issue!

If you’re not familiar with these books yet, they are made out of thick plastic and extremely durable. These can actually be washed with water and a dab of soap if you need to add some. I usually dry mine with a paper towel, or something that won’t “fuzz.”

Curious about these titles? You can learn more about them here.

Do you have your own sticker book or parenting hack? I’d love to hear about it!

Happy Stickering,

Why Should I Let My Child Read Graphic Novels?

Graphic novels are a fantastic choice of book that might be often overlooked!

First, it might be good to clarify exactly what a graphic novel is.

Merriam-Webster states that a graphic novel is “a story that is presented in comic-strip format and published as a book.

what is a graphic novel, should i let my son read graphic novels, what kind of graphic novels should i let me child read, what can i give me child to help them enjoy reading, what is a good comic book for my son, my son only wants to read comic books, my child hates reading,

Next, why are graphic novels good choices for reading?

  • Graphic Novels are very engaging and fast-paced.
  • Can keep a reluctant reader engaged and interested
  • A graphic novel can be created from a much more advanced text to make it easily consumable like a Shakespeare tragedy turned graphic novel. 
  • The illustrations help to reinforce the text and concepts in the story.
  • Helps build vocabulary with high-quality language. While there is less room for text in a graphic novel, words are chosen to make the biggest impact. 
should i let my child read graphic novels, are graphic novels good for my kids, what will help my child like to read, my child hates reading what should i do, how to get my child interested in reading

To see some of my favorite graphic novels for kids, check out these great books from Usborne Books & More.
