BookCase.Club for Kids July 2018 Review
Hickory Dickory Dock by Little Learners - Listed Retail Value $6.99 (I couldn't find this exact version anywhere!)
We have a few of these little finger puppet books and I'm a fan of them. Although, this is the second month in a row that we have received one, so I hope that they don't send any more! The small size makes it a great book to keep kids entertained in the car and I'm always happy to see a nursery rhyme, especially one with a cute mouse like this. This version is simplified with one line on each page making it easy for little ones to follow along with!
Red Fish, Yellow Fish by Little Learners - Retail Value $6.99
This book is perfect for summer and I love the little easy-grip hole on the bottom. This is a very basic book, but it has a lot of cute creatures and is great to teach colors. The variously shaped edges in the top corner and peek-a-boo style make it a bit more interesting, too. While it isn't something I'd go out of my way to purchase, my son seems to love it.
Toot! by Kirsten Hall - Retail Value $8.99
This was my favorite of the bunch this month. This was a cute rhyming story about a train named Toot.
This really reminded me a lot of one of our favorite books, Little Blue Truck. The rhythmic text and the storyline are similar, although this story features trains instead of animals. I enjoyed reading this one to the kids and they seemed to like it too!
Verdict: The books we received from BookCase.Club this month were decent, but not my favorite that we have received. I think if I saw Toot! in the store that I would definitely pick it up to add to our library. I enjoyed the interactive Hickory Dickory Dock book, but it wasn't as exciting since we received another puppet book just last month. My 2-year-old son seemed to enjoy all of the books though, so I'd call this box a win!
The total retail value of the books came to $22.97, which is good for a $14.99 ($9.99 + $5.00 shipping) per month box (especially if you opt for a longer subscription which costs less). I never know what to expect from this subscription, so it's always fun to see what kind of books they send!
To Wrap Up:
