Book Review: Princess Joy Sticker and Activity Book

Princess Joy Sticker & Activity Book Inspired by Jeanna Young & Jacqueline Johnson is intended to go with Princess Joy's Birthday Blessing by Jeanna Young & Jacqueline Johnson. These books are part of the Princess Parables Series. Princess Joy Sticker and Activity Book is a 16 page book for ages 4-8. There are 50 stickers, a sticker activity page, word puzzles, coloring pages, and other activities.

The book is very appealing for girls. The full color pages give a lot for children to look at. The coloring pages are very detailed and Im not sure that even I would be able to stay in the lines. The activities would be appropriate for older girls even through age 12. The book is great until we got to the stickers. The stickers frustrated my 9 year old. The stickers have too much white space around them and some are too small for the area they are intended for. My 6 year old is confused as to where all the extra stickers go but greatly enjoyed sticking them throughout the book where ever she pleased. Although she placed the stickers  In my opinion they took the same sticker page and put it in all the activity books in the series. I think more time and effort should have been put into the stickers. Only 6 stickers out 50 are used in the activity unless you add more on the create your own invitation page. The stickers insult the beautiful full color pages they are to go on because the white area distracts from the flow of the page. What we did was cut the white edge off of the sticker and then placed them where they belonged. I took pictures of the sticker page. The dog, teapot and flower I cut smaller. The butterfly and racket I left alone. The sheep sticker is too small and really upset my girls. With more thought to the stickers, this book would make a great accompaniment to the lovely book series. Even without more thought to the stickers, I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the Princess Parables Series.
