Basher Science Sticker Book Giveaway

This Friday I am hosting the STEM Friday children’s book meme again. (STEM Friday gathers posts about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math children’s books together in one place). To celebrate, I’ve decided to hold a little giveaway this week.

Are you familiar with the Basher Science books by Simon Basher? The brightly-colored illustrations feature sweet figures that appear to have roots in Japanese chibi. I have reviewed several of the titles, including Chemistry:  Getting a Big Reaction by Simon Basher and Dan Green.

Examples of Basher Science titles:

Kingfisher has recently published a new title, Basher Science Sticker Book: Science That Sticks. It contains several two-page spreads tied in with some of the earlier titles, such as:

  • Solar System
  • Planet Earth
  • Rocks and Minerals
  • Chemistry
  • and more.

Each illustration has spaces for some of the Basher characters and then a page of reusable character stickers to use to fill in the spaces. In the back is a bonus poster of Basher’s version of the Periodic Table.

I love the interactive aspect of the stickers. Having to physically move stickers from place to place engages children, and makes them think about a problem longer. This type of book is especially important to kinesthetic or tactile learners.


If you know of someone who would like a copy of the Basher Science Sticker Book, be sure to leave a comment on this post before Friday, September 21, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. PST. Please leave a valid email address so that I can contact you if you are the winner. The winner will be selected at random. The easiest way to leave a comment is to click on the title of the post to send it to a separate page and then scroll to the bottom. The contest is now closed.

    My DD and DS would love a copy. We’ve only seen the Basher books online and would love to see it in person. Thanks!

    (P.S. I am believing that the Sept 1 date is incorrect, but I oculd be wrong…..)

    Yes, you were right. It was September 21. Thanks Sunny.
