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

Room for Bear by Ciara Gavin– $15.40 on Amazon (retail price $16.99)

I love the illustrations in this story of the friendship between a bear and five little ducklings. Though the bear and ducklings love each other, bear doesn’t fit well in the ducklings’ home; he’s just too large. They go off to find a new home together, but nothing seems to suit them all. Finally bear finds a perfect solution. He builds the ducks a new home at the mouth of his cave and they all have exactly what they need, most of all each other.

Sleepytime Me by Edith Hope Fine –$16.18 on Amazon (retail price $17.99)

This is everything a bedtime book should be: calming, soothing, sweet and loving. When I read it to my daughter the sound of my voice and the rhythmic beat of the words drew my son into the room and onto the couch next to us to hear the rest of the story. Loved it.

Verdict: Both Bookroo selections were a big hit this month. The value was great too: over $31. My children love when new books arrive in the mail each month. It’s a great way to grow our home library!

What do you think of this month’s Bookroo? What’s your child’s favorite bedtime book?

Jessica's addiction started off slowly enough with Birchbox, but it has grown and grown over the last three years. An elementary school librarian and mom of two she loves boxes that are child-centric. But she'll never turn down a good fashion, beauty or tasty treat subscription.

We just switched to the picture books from board books, and oh my gosh is Sleepytime Me a hit. We’ve read it 3 times in a row, every night.

Jessica

We’ve been reading it every night also. Love that book!

Amanda

I love bookroo! We get the board books and are very happy! My little one is so excited to see the box come in the mail. I had tried 3mo and then extended to a year. Worth it!

Jessica

I’m so glad you’re little one loves it too!
