Books Wrapped

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!

Worst Princess

Princess Open

The Worst Princess by Anna Kemp – $15.22 on Amazon (retail price: $16.99)

I really enjoyed this rhyming story about a princess who’s been waiting forever to be rescued by a prince. However once she is she quickly realizes that what he intends (for her to wear dresses and smile a lot) and what she desires (adventure and excitement) are two very different things. What’s a girl to do? Befriend a dragon and cause a ruckus! My son and daughter loved this one and so did I.

Sleeps Open

Everyone Sleeps by Marcellus Hall – Retail $16.99 (out of print)

Everyone Sleeps is a bedtime story about a dog who thinks everyone sleeps, but him. He travels around finding many sleeping animals from fish to polar bears. When he gets back to his own home he sees the little girl who lives there is having trouble sleeping too. He crawls into bed with her and finally drifts off. This wasn’t my favorite book, it fell a little flat for me. It looks like Everyone Sleeps is out of print. I can’t find it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble in hardcover unless you wish to purchase it used. They do have a Kindle edition available on Amazon.

Verdict:  It’s a little hard to figure out the value this month since one book is no longer in print. However based on the original retail value these books would cost about $32. I also think the activities that accompany the books (on the Bookroo website) are an added bonus. I’m excited to see what they send next month and I’m thrilled to say that I still haven’t received one book we already own!

What do you think of this month’s Bookroo? Would your children love unwrapping new books each month?
