Paint by Sticker Kids: Outer Space: Create 10 Pictures One Sticker at a Time! Includes Glow-in-the-Dark Stickers
by Workman Publishing
5 out of 5 stars
This activity book has 10 beautiful designs, and hundreds of stickers in little mosaic shapes! It’s so easy to put the stickers into place, and the finished product looks wonderful. It’s very relaxing and helped me to get creative. You really feel a sense of accomplishment when you finish!

There are information boxes with facts about different planets, rockets, and comets. There is an astronaut, a moon, an observatory with a massive telescope, and even a Mars rover.

The stickers are sturdy and easy to remove from the sticker sheet. The colors are vibrant and it’s simple to follow the instructions to find the right placement for each sticker. I really loved that the pages are perforated, so that you can tear out the sticker sheet or the design or both. That way you don’t have to keep flipping back and forth in the book.

I love the clever designs and beautiful colors! This is perfect for anytime you have some anxiety and need a calm activity, and it’s easy enough for kids to do!

Mom, You’re My Superstar! by Irena Freitas

Mom, You’re My Superstar!: A Book About You with Words and Pictures by Me
by Irena Freitas (Goodreads Author) (Illustrations)
5 out of 5 stars


This book gives the cutest prompts for the “author” to write in about their mother. There is a report card for Mom with grades for hugs, dancing, and jokes. You can draw in a superhero cape for Mom, and answer questions like, “If you were an ice cream flavor, you would be…”

There are tons of pages to draw in yourself and your Mom having adventures in outer space or traveling the globe. There are also places where you can paste in photos and place stickers. There is an entire sheet of cute stickers in the back!

You can create “new rules” for your household, start a band with your Mom, and give your Mom an award. You can write a story about your adventures together, design a secret treehouse, and trace your hands to make the pages high-five each other.

This book goes way beyond the typical “favorite color” type of prompts, and makes for a very special gift. It really challenges your creativity and inspires some fun and interesting subjects!

Every page is filled with colorful illustrations and art work. I love the attractive design of this book!
