Bookroo sends the books individually wrapped each month. It’s a special touch, and my children enjoy unwrapping the books each month.
Bookroo includes an information card in each of their boxes with summaries of the books inside.
A Girl and Her Gator by Sean Bryan – $11.40 on Amazon (retail price $14.95)
From the Lilly Pulitzer-esque color scheme to the delightful rhymes, this book was a real hoot to read aloud to my children. Claire wakes up to find a gator on her head and isn’t too pleased about it. This series by Sean Bryan also has a story about Claire’s brother who has a bunny on his head. I found Claire to have the right mix of spunk and panache.
Pirate’s Lullaby: Mutiny at Bedtime by Marcie Wessels – $13.56 on Amazon (retails price $16.99)
Stories about kids who are avoiding bedtime have been done hundreds of times, and at this point, it’s hard to find a fresh spin that appeals to me. This one, with its brief text, boldly colored illustrations and swashbuckling attitude, won us over. My kids thought it was hysterical that Ned’s papa fell asleep first and snores just like their own dad.
Bookroo sent some coupons this month, which are good towards purchases at nine different websites.
Verdict: The value of Bookroo this month was over $24 (using Amazon prices), which is higher than the cost of the box (plus shipping). We enjoyed both books this month, especially A Girl and Her Gator! We love receiving Bookroo’s beautifully wrapped books each month and have found many new favorites among their selections. I highly recommend this subscription to the little bookworm in your life.
