Sticker Girl is an adorable story about Martina Rivera who has a secret, he sticker collection comes to life! This book is imaginative as Martina's sticker collection helps her overcome her shyness and tackle public speaking. There is a sheet of stickers that is included in the book (which, my toddler was happy to take command of and put them in the book!), just like the sheet of stickers that comes to life in the story. This is a great book for elementary age kids! I love how Martina has to overcome something in the story. This one is a cute one!
