Parragon Knows How to Keep Your Kids Engaged This Summer! (Children's Book Review)

Ah the Summer brain drain...
A solution can be at hand!
You know Parragon as the source of great cooking and crafting books, 
from 'across the pond', and now they have a kids line too!
We were sent 2 books to check out:


Stickersaurus by Nikalas Catlow and Tim Wesson (Author)

Stickers at the ready! The evil T-Rex is on the rampage and the Dino Supersaurs need to stop him in his tracks. Comes with super-stretchy dinosaur character ready for combat!

This dino book opens out into 7 giant story scenes, showing the streets, cityscape and skies of New Dino City. With over 50 reusable stickers, children can read the story panels and create their own action-packed scenes.

The book is perfect for vacation travel activity in the car, as kids can move the stickers around to their liking to create a story that their stretchy dino can then act out. Boys and girls will be delighted with 'stretchy' as Miss Grace calls him! Plus they can use the storyboards they make with other dinos and animals they have, to extend the fun of the book. the reading level is also 1st-2nd grade. Miss Grace highly recommends it for Summer fun, and for birthday present giving too!

Who knew?

The books has lots of 'no way!', "ewwwww" and "yuck" quotes, plus lots and lots of '"wow", "neat" and "cool" items to keep your kids interested for HOURS (was that peace you heard from the back seat, as they share the interesting info with each other? yes it was!). These shocking facts will make your hairs stand on end! So hold onto your stomach and get ready to discover the yuckiest things, people, places and animals in the universe! Miss Grace adores Discovery Channel and learning all about science and animals, so she gives this book an double high five!
