Tiny Humans Read Box May 2019 Review
At the top of our box was this card from the Tiny Humans Read team introducing us to the May box. On the back, they included some activity ideas for us. Another fun thing about this company is they include some fun printables for your kids on their site as well as some insight into the benefits of reading with your child.
This book left me with some warm fuzzy feelings! It is such a simple and beautifully illustrated book that describes how the various parts of a house were once part of something else. The door used to be an oak tree, the bricks were once mud, and the roof was once rock and the house remembers everything as it was before. It just feels like a magical way to describe where things come from and how they can be used to create something else. This was definitely a unique book!
In this book, two friends are learning how to collaborate creatively in their artwork. Their simple drawing session quickly becomes a war of sorts as they try to cancel one another’s drawings out with their own. This was a visually fun and really unique book as we started with a basic black and white image and then the images became more and more detailed and colorful as our characters drew on the pages. It was a clever use of illustration and was fun for the kids to read and watch as the drawings seemed to come to life!
This story has some of the cutest little characters! Boom, Snot, and Twitty are a bear, snail, and bird, respectively, and they all seem to be quite different from one another. Boom seems to want to be going constantly while Twitty is content to stay put, and Snot is the easygoing friend who simply makes the most out of whatever gets thrown her way, even a storm that blows her away. While the story seemed to lack a bit of substance for me and possibly didn’t even have a plot at all, the characters were super cute and the illustrations were great.
Verdict: I really enjoyed the selections from Tiny Humans Read this month! The illustrations in each book were great, from the beautiful house, to the cute animals, to the imaginative drawings in Sam & Eva. They were all unique books and the kids seemed to enjoy reading them! The retail value of the books we received this month came to $52.97 (less with sale prices) which is great for a $24.99/month (plus free shipping) box!
