The Noisy Paint Box: The Colors and Sounds of Kandinsky’s Abstract Art by Barb Rosenstock – Value $7.99 on Amazon (retail price $17.99)
This Caldecott medal winning book is richly colored and detailed throughout. It tells the story of Vasya Kandinsky from boyhood into adulthood and how he didn’t just see colors, he heard them. He turned his love for colors and painting into a career as an abstract artist. I enjoyed teaching my children about Kandinsky through this book and then we spent some time on the computer afterwards looking at some of his well-known works.
The Man in the Moon by William Joyce – Value $6.84 on Amazon (retail price $17.99)
This book has richly colored fantastical illustrations. It’s a lengthy story (for young children) about how the Man in the Moon came to be. This story is pure unadulterated fantasy in the most pleasing way. This is part of the Guardians of Childhood series by William Joyce. My six year old son enjoyed this story very much. He now wants me to get the other books in the series.
Mousetronaut Goes to Mars by Mark Kelly – Value $7.99 on Amazon (retail price $16.99)
We loved this story about Meteor the Mousetronaut who sneaks aboard the spaceship heading to Mars. Meteor ends up saving the day when he’s the only one small enough to step foot on Mars safely when an engine problem arises. He collects soil samples and plants the American flag. We liked the story, illustrations and message about perseverance.
Verdict: This was our first month of Little Fun Club and we loved all 3 selections. I felt the books were well curated and definitely delivered on the theme of imagination and adventure. The value this month was about $23 (based on Amazon prices) which is below the cost of the box. We are ok with that, valuing the curation over price, but you can find additional value in a 3 or 6-month prepaid subscription or using our MSAISAWESOME coupon on a month-to-month subscription.
