I love that Bookroo sends the books individually wrapped each month. It’s a special touch that’s appreciated.
Goldi Rocks & The Three Bears by Corey Rosen Schwartz – $11.98 on Amazon (retail price $17.99)
I love fractured fairy tales and this one is a modern music themed version of Goldilocks, but also has cameo appearances of the Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood and others. The Three Bears have a rock group and are holding auditions for a new singer to hit the high notes. Goldi to the rescue! This book is going to have to travel with me back and forth between school and home because I can’t wait to add it to my Goldilocks comparison unit at school and read it at home with my own kids.
Once Upon a Memory by Nina Laden–$12.68 on Amazon (retail price $17.99)
This book is truly a treasure. Nina Laden’s poetic rhyming verse encourages the reader to remember that all great things started out as something simple and small. “Does a statue remember it was once stone? Does an island remember it was once unknown? “We used this story to kick off a family discussion of some of our favorite memories. And Renata Liwska’s illustrations have long been favorites of mine ever since discovering her pictures in The Loud Book and The Quiet Book by Deborah Underwood.
Verdict: Bookroo hit a grand slam this month! They sent two great (and very different style) books that are new to me and that we all enjoyed sharing together. The value was good too: over $24. My children love when new books arrive in the mail each month. It’s a great way to grow our home library!
