PRODUCT: Usborne - Nativity Sticker Book (www.usborne.com)Usborne Nativity Sticker Book

DESCRIPTION: A 16-page art sticker book which guides older children through the Christmas nativity story. Includes 8 additional pages of stickers and a sticker advent calendar. Published in association with the National Gallery London. Written by Jane Chisholm and illustrated by Princesse Camcam. Suitable for children aged 6 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The story of the nativity and Jesus' birth is a religious lesson that most children are made aware of from an early age, and the Usborne Nativity Sticker Book is ideal for guiding children through this famous Christmas story in a more detailed yet fun and uncomplicated way.

The book addresses the story in six double-paged bite-size sections, covering the Annunciation through to the journey of the Three Kings. The specific sections are: Mary and the Angel, To Bethlehem, Jesus is Born, The Shepherds, The Star in the East, and The Three Kings.

Each section briefly describes the main events in a simple way that young children can easily comprehend, and then invites them to match the wonderful art stickers at the back of the book to their labelled painting frames throughout the book - these stickers are helpfully grouped according to the sections. The book has been published in association with the National Gallery, and the stickers cover many famous artworks (and artists) from the Renaissance to modern times, together with an abundance of interesting facts and explanations about the paintings (acknowledgements are also included on the last page).

In addition, the book includes a double spread sticker advent calendar for your child to count down to Christmas Day, using a further collection of art stickers numbered 1 to 24 to make them easy to locate.

This is, in our opinion, a well devised and 'grown-up' sticker book which relays the nativity in a simple, fun yet very educational and informative way.

BAD POINTS: Some of the information and artwork may be a little lost on children at the lower end of the recommended age.
