I love this literacy tip from Usborne Books:
Ask your child to read a page from a familiar book backwards. It's a great way to test if your child is actually reading, and it's really funny because it makes no sense at all.
My five year old daughter and I have tried out a few of these books and they are just so much fun! We've tried out Sticker Dolly Dressing Dolls, and Sticker Dolly Dressing Dream Jobs. These two books keep us entertained for hours! As a child, I loved playing with paper dolls and these are the next best thing.
There are books for just about every child's interest, boys or girls. Cars, sports, knights, pirates, hero's, animals, art, dinosaurs, princesses, fairies, foreign languages, first experiences (going to the dentist), holiday's and history - just to name a few! ;) Check out all of them here.
I keep a couple of these sticker books on hand for my daughter to use as birthday presents and gifts for her friends. They always receive great compliments, plus, aside from a few combined volumes, they are all less than $10 per book.
My daughter loves this app as well and enjoys playing for as long as we let her!
