I love that Bookroo sends the books individually wrapped each month. It’s a special touch that’s appreciated.
I like that Bookroo includes an information card in their boxes with a summary of each book.
Night Knight by Owen Davey – Value $14.01 on Amazon (retail price $15.99)
The text in this story is quite sparse (nice quick bedtime read – no complaints here!), but the illustrations are gorgeous. I love the dark brooding colors and unique style. The pictures really lent themselves to a nighttime read. The story is about a boy and his actual bedtime routine being interposed with a knightly castle-dwelling adventure.
Bernice Gets Carried Away by Hannah E. Harrison – Value $14.19 on Amazon (retails price $16.99)
The cover of this book doesn’t do it justice. Hannah Harrison is an extremely talented illustrator and her work in this book is outstanding. Bernice is in a sour mood and everything that can go wrong at the birthday party she is attending does. From only getting a center piece of cake with no frosting rose to being given the remaining bottle of warm prune soda. So she decides to take matters into her own paws when the balloons are being handed out and grabs the entire bunch. Floating up into a rain cloud isn’t what she had in mind but soon her problems seem to shrink as she gains perspective and the party ends up being a load of fun after all.
Verdict: The value of Bookroo this month was over $28 which I was very pleased with. Both selections were fabulous this month with top-notch artwork. We love receiving Bookroo’s beautifully wrapped books each month. I highly recommend this subscription to the little bookworm in your life.
