Tiny Humans Read Welcome Box Review
At the top of our box was this card from the Tiny Humans Read team welcoming us to the subscription. On the back, they included their social media info and gave us an idea of when to expect our next box. Another fun thing about this company is that they include some fun printables for your kids on their site as well as some insight into the benefits of reading with your child.
The first book we decided to read from our box was this fun book about a dog named Figgy Mustardo. Poor Figgy gets pretty upset when he gets left behind by his human family for the day and after sitting and waiting around for them he finally takes matters into his own hands and starts eating some of the literature around the house. For instance, he finds a cooking magazine and gobbles it up leading him to dream that he is a chef. When he wakes up, he feels confident he can be a chef in real life and he starts making free pizzas for everyone. He also becomes a rock star and a speed racer all unbeknownst to his family. This book was really silly and fun and my four-year-old loved it. This is one of those fun books that definitely gets more exciting if you read it with a lot of gusto, which, of course, I did!
This book is full of imagination along with real photographs of natural beauty, and it offers a lot of engagement for the audience. We start out with this incredible image of the earth and they ask you to tap until we have zoomed in to a beautiful beach scene. The book has us blowing on waves, holding the book over our head as we dive underwater, and imagining the warm sun on your face. There are closeup pictures of sand, a little bit of educational information and it all ends with an awesome view that your kids will enjoy! This book was really unique and fun to read, and my kids enjoyed it, but this is definitely one where the parent has to be engaged too to make it as interesting as possible.
The two things that stood out to me in this book are the awesome and fun illustrations that are made to look like kid’s crayon drawing with a simple green and purple color scheme, and the message of compromise that this book teaches. My daughter is definitely going through a phase where she wants to play things her way and this book was a great story about a boy and a girl who both have very different ideas of how they want to play which leads them to disagree and go play on their own instead, until eventually, they learn to play together. While the way they spoke to each other isn’t exactly how I want my kids speaking to others, “I don’t want to play with you,” I think it is a perfect example of pointing out why what you say and how you say it matters. The kids enjoyed it and it was very easy to apply to my daughter and son to show them how they can play together nicely during one of the many times they aren’t getting along!
Verdict: This was my first box from Tiny Humans Read and I was impressed with the unique and engaging books that they sent. We have not read any of these books before, but we definitely enjoyed all three of them. They were each very different from one another, too, which is always nice for some variety in our library! The retail value of the books we received this month came to $52.97 (less with sale prices) which is pretty great for a $24.99/month (plus free shipping) box!
