North, South, East, West by Margaret Wise Brown – Value $11.97 on Amazon (retail price $17.99)
Margaret Wise Brown, the author of the well-loved Goodnight Moon, wrote this book about a bird leaving home and trying to figure out which direction to fly. I thought the story itself was pretty flat though I did enjoy the illustrations by Greg Pizzoli. Nothing about the book struck me as amusing or unique.
Caterpillar Dreams by Clive McFarland – Value $11.66 on Amazon (retail price $17.99)
Henri the caterpillar wishes to go on adventures and see the world. Mole, Bird, and Fish help him get under the road, over the wall and across the lake. Just as he’s about to embark on an exciting adventure on a hot air balloon he begins his transformation into a butterfly. Now that Henri is a butterfly and can travel easily anywhere he wishes, where does he choose to go? Home to see his friends. This was a sweet if slightly dry tale.
Verdict: We were not thrilled with either selection this month, but books are so subjective and I never expect to love every book every month. I still appreciate learning about new titles, authors and illustrators I may not have come across otherwise. The retail value this month is over $23 which I’m very happy with. The March themed wrapping paper was so springy this month too. Though Lil’ Bear Book Club says the subscription comes with 2-4 books each month I’ve only received more than two books once last spring. Getting a third (or even fourth) book would be nice every few months and would certainly boost the value.
