My First Sticker By Numbers Book
Kids love stickers, so use this innate love to master a relatively dry subject, number recognition. My First Sticker By Numbers is an excellent way to drill those skills as your younger child matches simple, colorful shaped stickers to the appropriate numbers.
Each My First Sticker By Numbers picture or design has blank shapes with a numeral that relates to the removable colored sticker pages at the back of the book. Just place the stickers and complete the pictures. The stickers are the perfect level of stickiness, repositionable when necessary but still stay where they are put. With over 700 stickers, My First Sticker By Numbers will give your younger children lots of opportunities to ace number recognition while also increasing manual dexterity.

My 4 year old calls this his project. He doesn't ask to do it much because it fatigues him, but he enjoys himself while he does! He wants to do it without help which is great for him. I think he'll love it more when he's a little older and can sit still longer and remember what he was doing.
This book was a big hit with my daughter, so would always ask to do more and got excited every time I pulled it out. By the end she got really good at placing the stickers in just the right spot to cover up all the white and create a full picture. Plus, it was a great way to go over a few of the simpler shapes and colors, I just had her ask for the shape and color sticker she wanted to finish the picture and then I would hand it to her. Lots of fun and easy learning for both me and her!
Besides reinforcing numbers, colors and shapes...it’s great for fine motor skills! Teaching my son to orient the sticker correctly, use 2 hands if needed, etc.
This is a great independent activity for my 4 year old. He enjoys searching for the correct shapes and numbers on his own. I like that the sticker pages can easily be torn out for easy access! Great activity!
This book is well made. I wish there were more pages but my little boy enjoyed doing each picture. The glossy finish and colorful pictures were a delight to do. I appreciate that the stickers were easily removeable if applied incorrectly. Counting and eye-hand coordination as well as identifying shapes was learned. Wasn't sure what shape to call half of a semi-circle, so I even learned something.
