Vincent and the Night by Adele Enersen – Value $13.46 on Amazon (retail price $16.99)

While I loved the creativity that Enersen used in taking photos of her baby and then juxtaposing them with digital line drawings, the story itself about a baby who doesn’t want to sleep fell flat. My daughter pored over the pictures but didn’t want me to read the rest of the book after the first few pages.

Where Bear by Sophy Henn – Value $7.99 on Amazon (retail price $16.99)

This delightful book is sparse on text and mainly consists of the repetitive refrain “where bear?” as a boy tries to find his companion a new home. The bear no longer fits in the house with the boy and so they go, off looking for a better spot. The artistic design of this book is fabulous. This is one of my all-time favorite subscription box books.

Young Cam Jansen and the Knock, Knock Mystery by David Adler – Value $4.70 on Amazon (retail price $14.99)

I’m a big fan of David Adler’s Cam Jansen books. Cam has a photographic memory which comes in handy when she’s solving mysteries around town. In this mystery, she’s with her best friend Eric trying to figure out who keeps knocking on Eric’s grandparent’s door at night and keep waking them up. My son loves doing these short, un-scary mysteries with me.

I’m Not Tired Yet by Marianne Richmond – Out of Print (Retail Value $16.99)

This is another bedtime story about a boy who stalls and stalls to avoid sleep. But this one has a cute twist with the sweet kinds of hugs and kisses he exchanges with his mother as part of their loving bedtime routine. A cute, if not very memorable, read.

Verdict: The value of BookCase.Club this month was over $43 (using both Amazon prices and retail prices for the book that is no longer in print) which is more than double the cost of the box ($9.99 a month plus $5 shipping)! I honestly don’t know how they do it, but I’m so glad they do! I think getting four hardcover books for only $14.99 a month (less with longer subscriptions) is phenomenal. I can’t wait to see what they send next month.

What do you think of this month’s BookCase.Club?

  1. My son adores where bear. Vincent and the night was just ok. The reader is too advanced for my 5 and 2 year old, and the one about s kid who won’t go to bed and his mom just keeps giving in won’t ever be seen by my children. Where Bear made this box worth it for me.

  2. Hi Jessica, thank you for the review! The coupon value is wrong – it’s 10% not 15% when applied.

  3. They do it because their books are remainders (books stores couldn’t sell)

    You can generally find the books in their crates on discount book sites for a few bucks each. I had a 3 month sub with them for a while and my box was only ever worth the $9.99.

    • Agree, If someone is willing to bargain hunt and do the legwork or internet searches than they could find a better deal/value. However the convience of having it delivered on a regular basis directly to the home, 4 books and new is amazing. I can’t imagine the profit margin being very high, books, packaging, shipping, labor, website site maintaince, reailor credit card fees etc. How do they do all that for sub w/shipping for only 15.
