Our box included a super cute card that introduced the November box to us.
Our unique toy was this pencil pouch you can color. It is made of very thin canvas. It is best to put a piece of cardboard or something in the bag so that your colors do not bleed.
Suite for Human Nature by Diane Charlotte Lampert, Illustrated by Eric Puybaret – Retail Value $17.99
I really enjoyed this book and the illustrations were absolutely beautiful. The book is about Mother Nature who wants a child. She starts by creating her first child, Fear, whose name rhymes with dear. When Mother Nature has to create the winter season, she leaves Fear with the Humans in her garden. When she returns, her Humans and all around them have learned fear; mice afraid of cats, lambs fearful of lions and humans of each other. Mother Nature worries and creates other children to balance this out: Envy, Hate, Greed, Fickle and eventually twins she named Love. This story really shows the impact of human nature. Something interesting about the illustrations: they were all done on linen.
This book was cute and really showed that putting your mind to something and working hard will pay off! A group of 5 friends who live in a number’s world are bored and want more. Their world is grey, boring and repetitive and eventually, they create the alphabet that makes their world fun, lively and colorful. There were more pictures than story but they were pretty cool. I also like how the book was more of a long book vs a wide book. It was cute and not something I would walk into Barnes and just grab, so I was happy to get this one and so were the kids.
Space Dog was a comic book styled book about a dog whose sworn enemy is a cat, whose sworn enemy is of, you guessed it, a mouse. They eventually all come together to save the Spooniverse and eventually become friends. While I have never personally enjoyed comic book styles books, my kids enjoyed me trying to read it aloud and we all enjoyed the illustrations.
Verdict: This was my first time receiving an Owl Post Books subscription and I really like it. I love and have always felt a love for reading and stories and passing down that love to my children is important. I enjoyed the selection of books I received for them, especially because they aren’t books I would walk into a bookstore to buy on my own. I also feel like the box was a pretty good deal, the total value equaling $42.97.
