If you like us are a Julia Donaldson fan – and especially a fan of her books that have been illustrated by Axel Scheffler, then this book is for you!
‘I’m Stick Man, Stick Man, Stick Man… that’s me…’
This poor stick man accidentally ends up being a variety of things – a dogs stick, swans nest, pooh stick, and other ‘make it up’ objects that sticks are generally used for… and all he really wants to do is get back home to the Family Tree.
This is a great story that is perfect for any time – but especially Christmas as Stick Man’s “claim to fame” is helping the ‘stuck man’ out the chimney – and we all know who that is!!
We love this story, the happy ending is testimony to all good things that happen on Christmas Eve! Definitely worth buying!
You can buy the book here in paperback or hardcover (Amazon Affiliate)
When looking for activities and art and craft ideas I have tried to find things that are related to the actual book – making stick men, actual stick man patterns and art ideas etc.
We made these Stick Men the other day!! Very Cute idea!! Click here for details…
I have also tried to find extension ideas that could be linked to sticks…
Stick man is thought of – much to his horror – as anything but a Stick Man – what stick ideas do you have?
What do you use sticks for?
…Here are some great stick ideas!!
