Stickers and Horrid Henry are a great match for 7yo as you may be able to see from this picture, when I gave her the new Horrid Henry Sticker Book from Orion this month.
Horrid Henry’s sticker book contains over 200 stickers that has been designed to be interactive for the reader. 7yo has always really loved stickers and sticker books, practising placing the stickers inside their silhouette in the books. This sticker book is a step up from ones we have had in the past.
The pages tell a story with a basic picture and a few words on each page. It’s up to the reader to decide which stickers are best placed on each pages and where they should go to complete the story.
The sticker pages are placed in the centre of the book, and my only gripe is that they are a little difficult to remove from the book if they are near the centre towards the spine of the book.
7yo struggled a little bit to remove some of the stickers and needed my help, but the ones on the edges of the paper were a lot easier.
We both found it great fun to choose the stickers from the selection to make up some of the story. I left 7yo to it for a little while and came back to a Christmas present in Henry’s choice of horrible things. She was chuckling so I realised she had done it on purpose to be incorrect.
As a parent, this is what I love about this sticker book. It encourages children to think for themselves as to how the story can play out. Each time we read the completed book now, 7yo chuckles when we read the part with the Christmas present.
Horrid Henry’s Sticker Book is published by Orion Books at around £4.99.
