Review:

The Smithsonian has put reusable stickers and sea creatures together in an interactive activity book. Boys and girls will be engaged and entertained for hours.

Young readers will find, in this handy portable kit, a 64 page sticker activity book, over 175 reusable stickers, and a framed play-scene. In the framed play-scene there are 5 deluxe 3-D stickers for even more interactive play and learning. Children will be introduced to creatures that can be found under the sea.

Young readers will learn about sea animals from around the world. Kids are asked to find the stickers in the back of the book and match them to the shapes. Young learners will find crustaceans, sea turtles, fish, sea mammals, echinoderms, and so much more. Readers will find the stickers in the back of the book to piece together the giant pacific octopus and bring a colorful photograph of a tide pool to life with various fish found on the stickers. Some sea animals survive by blending into their environment, young readers can find the sea creatures and match them to their camouflage. Readers can also review the reference chart in the back of the book for even more learning.

Surprisingly there is plenty to do and keep young learners busy for hours. Parents and teachers will love the glossary in the back of the book and how realistic the stickers look. This is a great tool for any home or classroom.
