A Newtown-based author says he's found a way to make learning stick for kids.
David Plaue, of Newtown, says Sticker Book Publishing was inspired by his two sons' obsession with a World Cup sticker book.
Starting with "Icons," Plaue now has six sticker books for children and adults alike.
"Our first book specifically for seniors is called 'Legends' and that's people of the 40s, 50s and 60s," said Plaue.
There are also QR Codes that help bring history to life. Under Martin Luther King Jr., you see his image, read his biography, and watch his "I Have A Dream" speech.
Ruby & Calvin Fletcher African American History Museum owner Jeffrey Fletcher says the sticker book has been a big seller. He says making history something you can touch makes learning more attractive for all ages.
"He makes it accessible and it's an interactive tool that, young children as well as adults, we get fooled by the word sticker," said Fletcher.
