Vincent and the Night by Adele Enersen – Value $13.46 on Amazon (retail price $16.99)
While I loved the creativity that Enersen used in taking photos of her baby and then juxtaposing them with digital line drawings, the story itself about a baby who doesn’t want to sleep fell flat. My daughter pored over the pictures but didn’t want me to read the rest of the book after the first few pages.
Where Bear by Sophy Henn – Value $7.99 on Amazon (retail price $16.99)
This delightful book is sparse on text and mainly consists of the repetitive refrain “where bear?” as a boy tries to find his companion a new home. The bear no longer fits in the house with the boy and so they go, off looking for a better spot. The artistic design of this book is fabulous. This is one of my all-time favorite subscription box books.
Young Cam Jansen and the Knock, Knock Mystery by David Adler – Value $4.70 on Amazon (retail price $14.99)
I’m a big fan of David Adler’s Cam Jansen books. Cam has a photographic memory which comes in handy when she’s solving mysteries around town. In this mystery, she’s with her best friend Eric trying to figure out who keeps knocking on Eric’s grandparent’s door at night and keep waking them up. My son loves doing these short, un-scary mysteries with me.
I’m Not Tired Yet by Marianne Richmond – Out of Print (Retail Value $16.99)
This is another bedtime story about a boy who stalls and stalls to avoid sleep. But this one has a cute twist with the sweet kinds of hugs and kisses he exchanges with his mother as part of their loving bedtime routine. A cute, if not very memorable, read.
Verdict: The value of BookCase.Club this month was over $43 (using both Amazon prices and retail prices for the book that is no longer in print) which is more than double the cost of the box ($9.99 a month plus $5 shipping)! I honestly don’t know how they do it, but I’m so glad they do! I think getting four hardcover books for only $14.99 a month (less with longer subscriptions) is phenomenal. I can’t wait to see what they send next month.
