With the Diamond Jubilee almost upon us, we have a Royal themed review and giveaway for the beginning of June.
Jocelyn has reviewed The Usborne Kings and Queens Sticker Book: Diamond Jubilee Edition for us…
A special, Diamond Jubilee edition of this gloriously illustrated sticker book featuring over 100 stickers with portraits of British kings and queens from the 10th century to the present day. Children can match the stickers to their frames on the themed pages, which include the Tudors, Stuarts, Hanoverians, Queen Victoria, the Windsors and a special Diamond Jubilee display for Queen Elizabeth II. Includes fascinating facts about the lives, loves and feuds of Britain’s monarchs, and internet links to websites to find out more. ( summary from Amazon)
Beginning with Alfred the Great, each page of this book works it’s way through our monarchy, with portraits of each monarch, which are to be stickered, and a few facts about them. Key events are outlined, too, such as the War of the Roses, the Civil War, followed by a page dedicated to the Restoration. As this is the Diamond Jubilee edition, the ‘Royal Family Today’ receives a double page spread, as does Queen Elizabeth II. At the back of the book are all of the stickers, so having read the facts, you can then work your way through sticking the pictures in.
This is a gorgeous book, packed with over 100 stickers, and quality pages, illustrations and photos. It’s a must for enticing children into learning a little about British History, and fans of it already will absolutely love this book – I certainly do!
Thanks Jocelyn and thank you to Usborne for sending us a copy to review.
