The books were individually wrapped and it felt like unwrapping a special gift. I think this is a nice touch, especially for a kid’s box! This month our box was missing the information card telling about the two books.
Sleepover with Beatrice & Bear by Monica Carnesi – $14.65 on Amazon (retail price $15.99)
This is such a sweet story about a bunny and bear who are best friends. Beatrice the bunny is going to miss bear when he hibernates for the winter. So she decides to make a scrapbook of all her winter excitement t share with bear when he wakes up. The illustrations are darling and both my kids liked this one a lot.
Giant Dance Party by Betsy Bird – $16.88 on Amazon (retail price $17.99)
Lexy loves to dance, but she hates recitals and has awful stage fright. One day some fuzzy blue giants come along to help her conquer her fears. This was a cute book, but I didn’t love it as much as the others Bookroo has sent.
Verdict: I enjoyed my Bookroo box again! The value is definitely there since these books would be over $30 if purchased on Amazon, plus the book activities on the BookRoo website are a great bonus. Both of these stories were new to me which is saying A LOT since I am a children’s librarian and read picture books all day long. These were both beautiful books and I’m so excited to see what BookRoo has in store for us next month!
What do you think of this month’s Bookroo? Would your children love unwrapping new books each month?
