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.
Tea Rex by Molly Idle – Value $14.95 on Amazon (retail price $16.99)
Proper tea etiquette with a T. Rex gets covered in this cute story of a girl and her brother having a dinosaur over for afternoon tea. I enjoyed the illustrations much more than the story itself. I did appreciate the amusing dichotomy between the text and pictures, but the story wasn’t a big hit at our house.
Home Tweet Home by Courtney Dicmas – Value $16.99
Pippi and Burt are the big sister and brother to eight lively siblings and they’ve seemed to have outgrown their nest. Pippi and Burt decide to set off and find a new home for their family and along the way have some adventures with a turtle, cheetah, and octopus, among others. They eventually come up with a new plan for a new home, one that involves blueprints. This was a cute story with fun, colorful pictures.
Verdict: The value of Bookroo this month was about $32 which I was very pleased with. We enjoy getting new hardcover books each month and love unwrapping them as well.
What do you think of this month’s Bookroo?
