Bought this book from Amazing Buy but unfortunately the sound does not work. The batteries had leaked . And the book was slightly damaged at the ends . I did not chk the book as it was packed well and I had bought it for a gift . Only when the person opened it we realised . Quite disappointed .
This is an excellent book. My daughter has been loving it since I bought it. We read this every single day. She is going be to 3 soon and we have been reading it for a year. Stick man oh stick man beware of the dog! :)
Storyline - Stick man goes for a jog one day and on his journey he visits many places e.g. a beach, park and river where he comes across danger The story is based upon what the stick man could be used as e.g. a throwing stick for a dog or a bow or a pen. Towards the end it’s Christmas and snows, then the stick man is reunited with his family in their tree.
Purchased as it was on my reading list for my Teaching training course at university specialising in early years. It has been an invaluable resources for use in the early years classroom on teaching placements. As with this well respected and loved children's author, Julia Donaldson, this is a great book with a good story line. It is so versatile and can be enjoyed by many ages. It is really easy to engage with as there are so many possible themes in the story about not only the festive season, christmas, but with having loving family, emotions, safety, nature/forest school (sticks) and also about using items for their purpose.
This book can be used a stimulus for many activities or discussion points including:- encouraging the use of rhyming words/strings; creating items using sticks; the importance of family, relationships and love which could lead onto 'how am i special' and 'who is special to me'; emotions, in particular recognizing the changing emotions throughout; learning about possible dangers of the world and understanding how scary it could be to be lost or away from family. The CD is a great added extra and can be used to entice the children into the story. It would be great to be used in the car along with other Julia Donaldson stories. Would recommend to any early years teacher or parent.
Equally good books of Julia Donaldsons include:- The Snail and the Whale Book and CD Pack (Book & CD) Tiddler book and CD

I bought this book again this time hard back for a friends child, who was as delighted with the stick mans adventures and wonderful illustrations. This came well packaged , with a super quick delivery. Thank you for reading please click helpful.
Stick Man is another Julia Donaldson book which is one of my 2 year old’s favourite bedtime stories.
It is the story of a stick man who is separated from his family, when he goes for a jog and is picked up by a dog. He then ends up on all sorts of adventures, with the reader wondering if he will ever get home.
My daughter is not a particularly sensitive child and like most 2 year olds, just takes things as they come, but she did seem a bit worried about Stick Man being away from his family the first time we read this. This is despite loving
by the same author, which is a similar theme of separation. Once we’d read through once and she saw the outcome of the book, she relaxed and now asks for it regularly.
The story rhymes and flows nicely. It’s not too long, so holds my daughter’s attention well. My daughter loves shouting ‘I’m Stick Man, I’m Stick Man’ along with the story and it’s been read so often she can recite some parts of the story. It also has a bit of a Christmas twist at the end, so may be a good one to read around that time of year.
Such a lovely story, I mean there is a little bit of peril as Stick Man does get into a few scrapes but none of it is dark enough to scare even my very sensitive 3yr old, and both her and her brother love the happy ending with Father Christmas! They really enjoy the rhymes, they learned it by hear really quickly, and the illustrations are as beautiful as we expect from Axel Scheffler. One of the best in Julia Donaldson's extensive catalogue.
This is a fun childrens book with adventure and exploration. The art work is as good as you would expect from a Julia Donaldson/Axel Schaeffer book with lively colourful pictures and plenty of details. The writing is clever and imaginative, again being structured to rhyme and make the book easy to follow for young children. The only reason i have given it 4 stars is because unlike in the gruffalo books the charactors do not come out so lovable or interesting, i found that my son is not as bothered by the predicaments of stickman as he is by the gruffalo or the witch in room on the broom. Overall this is a good quality book for children.
