Jack and the Beanstalk by George Bridge – $10.99 on Amazon, ($14.99 retail)
The artwork in this book is unique and interesting! I definitely feel like there’s a lot to look at, which is good for my kid while I read it to him.
This version is a little different because Jack’s mother, while not along with him for the adventure, is still involved with it with him. I thought it was fun that it’s a slightly different take.
This book is about kid dinosaurs (clearly, one named Buddy is the protagonist) and their exploration of a train.
Buddy and Tiny have little jobs they have to do to earn their junior conductor hats. It’s a cute book!
This book has pretty illustrations and poems about different animals.
There’s also a spot on each page to push and hear the poems read. It’s not an annoying voice, either, which is nice.
Verdict: I like Lil Bear Bookclub, and I appreciate that they aim to encourage family bonding and learning/reading with books. Children’s reading and literacy is something that is really important to me! I like the idea of getting “surprise books” for you and your kids to get excited about. However the value is hard to estimate. As you can see with the Amazon prices, you can get loads of children’s books for dirt cheap online, not to mention free from libraries (although getting to the library and then also remembering to return them might be a bit of a pain, it’s important to patron libraries and keep them open!). So, really, I think the concept and surprise of Lil Bear Bookclub is one you would have to want/enjoy more than be looking for a good deal.
