First World War Sticker Book by Usborne (Usborne Publishing)

World War 1 Sticker Book

Published by Usborne Publishing

In conjunction with the Imperial War Museum

2014 marks the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1 and it's a subject that will receive extensive coverage in the media, in schools and in children's books. Usborne have already produced several brilliant resource books for the First World War and they were kind enough to send us a First World War Sticker Book from the new range, to take a look at.

Charlotte loves history, and she really loves sticker books so we were interested to see how Usborne treated a sensitive subject such as The Great War. In conjunction with the Imperial War Museum, they have produced a fantastic high-quality book packed with facts and figures about the war, the battles and the technology that was used on both sides.

100 stickers follow the timeline from the outbreak of war and the events surrounding it, to how quickly war swept across Europe and beyond. Photos and illustrations make up a fascinating (and sometimes gruesome) record for children to delve into, even after they've enjoyed sticking all the stickers down.

We always trust the Usborne brand to be of superb quality, informative and engaging and the "First World War Sticker Book" does not disappoint. Suitable for a range of ages from 7+, and supporting Key Stage 1/2.

Charlotte's best bit: The posters and propaganda materials. Women of Britain Say "GO!"
Daddy's Favourite bit: A really high quality engaging and respectfully produced sticker book, a fantastic place to start for children who are interested in history and want to find out more about the First World War
