Sticker Dolly Dressing Fashion Long Ago - A Great New Sticker Dolly Book By Usborne Books

Usborne Books has created yet another Sticker Dolly Dressing book that girls will love! With Sticker Dolly Dressing Fashion Long Ago, girls will love learning about the fashions throughout time while dressing people from different time periods. Time periods include: Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, Ancient China, Medieval Times, Spain in the 1500s, France in the 1770s, England in the 1800's, Victorian Times, England in the 1920's, America in the 1950's, and London in the 1960's. For home schoolers, especially those who follow the "classical style curriculum", this is a great way to introduce the dress as you go through your history lessons.
My daughter LOVES all the Sticker Dolly Dressing books. In this one she thought it particularly funny how the guys dressed. That's another thing that sets this Sticker Dolly book apart from the rest. It includes men and boys of the time eras to dress. Once she had everyone in each era dressed in their appropriate attire, she then had a blast dressing them in all sorts of silly outfits from different time eras and mixing and matching the eras. She really had a lot of fun with this.

There are eight Sticker Dolly Dressing books in the series: Ballerinas, Bridesmaids, Dolls, Fairies, Fashion Long Ago, On Vacation, Pop Stars, and Princesses. Each will delight any young girl in your life, and they also make fantastic gifts.

What better way to start off a new decade and a new year than with a NEW business! If you are looking for a way to make extra money, a new career, or just something fun to do in your spare time - consider becoming an Usborne Books and More consultant. This is a rewarding business that lets you help spread literacy in your own community with award winning books that children LOVE to read.

I've always known this, but this year I've learned first hand how this business transforms as your life transforms. That is the glory of this business! It changes for you as your own family and life circumstances change. We homeschool our children, and it was because I loved the books so much that I started dabbling with Usborne. Actually it was my son that liked the books so much, that I had to get him more of them. Luckily I've been slowly building a strong Usborne books business over the past 4 years. Even though I homeschool, I am able to fit Usborne into our family schedule quite nicely. In Nov. when my husband was laid off, we were fortunate that I have this great business. It sure kept our anxiety down, and I have the opportunity to keep our family afloat!
