I love that Bookroo sends the books individually wrapped each month. It’s a special touch that’s appreciated.

I like that Bookroo is now including an information card in their boxes. They provided a summary of each book and I think the modern graphics they used next to each book title were very cool too.

Catch that Cookie! by Hallie Durand – $13.42 on Amazon (retail price $17.99)

Marshall is making gingerbread cookies with his class at school. He doesn’t believe cookies can actually run away, but when the cookies are missing he is determined to solve the mystery. Rhyming clues along the way are fun to read and David Small’s illustrations are wonderful.

I do a month long unit on different versions of The Gingerbread Man story at my school in December and then my classes make gingerbread houses. I can’t wait to introduce my students to this new-to-me version during our unit.

Edmund Unravels by Andrew Kolb – $12.67 on Amazon (retail price $16.99)

Edmund is a ball of yarn that also happens to be a ball of energy, always looking for the next adventure. As he gets older and his explorations take him further from home he learns a valuable lesson about being independent and the value of a supportive family. We loved this book about venturing away from home but staying connected to those that you love. The illustrations were awesome as well.

Verdict: Bookroo is really on a roll sending great books again this month! The value was very good too: over $26. This month may be my favorite yet. We loved both selections this month and I was especially pleased to see that both books were ones I have never seen before!

What do you think of this month’s Bookroo?
