Who’s In the Tree?: And Other Lift-the-Flap Surprises by Craig Shuttlewood – Value $12.95 (out of print)

Who’s in the Tree was a fun lift-the-flap book with animals that just don’t belong. An octopus in a bush, an elephant in the sky, these animals should be in the zoo. And that’s exactly where the story wraps up. Fun, colorful illustrations with cheeky rhyming speech bubbles added to the fun.



My Dog Spot by Jack E. Levin – Value $11.24 on Amazon (retail price $17.99)

My Dog Spot is a tribute to all dog lovers out there. The sparse text and red, white and black illustrations on brown craft paper were homey and pleasant. This was a timeless book for all families with a beloved dog.



Tulip Loves Rex by Alyssa Satin Capucilli – Value $17.99

Capucilli of the beloved Biscuit series wrote this delightful tale about a girl named Tulip who isn’t like other girls. She loves to dance more than anything at all. When she meets Rex at the park and quickly discovers that he’s a dog unlike any other, they realize they’re meant to be together forever. Luckily for Tulip, her parents agree!



Little Bird Takes a Bath by Marisabina Russo – Value $7.99 on Amazon (retail price $16.99)

Little Bird’s bath in a puddle keeps getting spoiled by one surprise in the park after another from a bouncing ball to a splashing child. Luckily Little Bird finally finds the perfect spot to wash up, a fountain in the city. We found this story to be a bit melancholy and it wasn’t a favorite of ours.

Verdict: The value this month was over $50 and is well over the cost of the box as always! We continue to be so pleased with our Lillypost box each month. The books are always well curated, beautifully wrapped and represent a variety of topics, authors, and illustrators. Our favorite this month was Tulip Loves Rex. I highly recommend this subscription to all book-loving families with young kids!

  1. I just wanted to say the Lillypost customer service team is absolutely amazing. We had several shipping issues (not their fault – the post office wasn’t correctly routing mail) and they worked with me to track and reship two months’ worth of packages. They had to resend boxes at their own expense and were kind and accommodating every step of the way. I’ve never had such a positive and seamless experience with a company before. They have a longtime customer from us!
