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!
How to Babysit Grandma by Jean Reagan- $9.60 on Amazon (retail price $16.99)
Jean Reagan’s How to… books are very popular at my school library, but we don’t own any ourselves so I was delighted to add one to our personal collection. My kids and I both thought this story was fun about what to do when you babysit Grandma (hopefully at her house for a sleepover!). The little girl shows Grandma that sprinkles go on just about anything, how to make shadow puppets in bed and how to say “I love you” without making a sound.
Rufus Goes to Sea by Kim Griswell – $14.95
Rufus returns in this sequel to Rufus Goes to School. School’s now out for summer and Rufus turns to his books for adventure and inspiration. He decides to join a pirate ship, but Captain Wibblyshins (one of the best book character names ever in my opinion!) says “No pigs on pirate ships!” My son and I both loved this story. I’ve included photos of the endpapers from the book because I thought they were especially beautiful.
Verdict: Lil’ Bear Book Club was a hit once again! Two wonderful hardcover books, though the value was lower this month (about $24 using Amazon’s current prices) it was still slightly greater than the cost of the box and I was happy with that. As a children’s librarian we have a book-filled home, but we are always looking for new authors to discover and new titles to read. I really have enjoyed their selections thus far and look forward to this subscription each month.
What do you think of this month’s Lil’ Bear Book Club? Would your children love unwrapping new books each month?
