Tiny Humans Read Box July 2019 Review
This month our books all came wrapped in brown kraft paper which was a nice touch!
At the top of our box was this card from the Tiny Humans Read team with some great storytime ideas to go along with one of our books. One fun thing about this company is that they include some great printables for your kids on their site as well as some insight into the benefits of reading with your child.
In our first book, our main character Ben is a bit timid and afraid of lots of things around him, even speaking up at the bakery when someone cuts in front of him in line. One day he decides that he can’t live his life being a coward any longer and he makes an appointment with the Magic Tree to help him become braver. The Magic Tree tells him that he lives in the woods with a lot of strange and scary creatures, but they are all harmless and so Ben feels safe on his journey. Even when he encounters a dragon and a witch. When he gets to the Magic Tree, he learns that he has become brave and life becomes just a bit easier after that. This story had some really nice illustrations and it was a cute and clever story with the way Ben overcame his cowardice!
This book was so much fun to read and my whole family enjoyed the silliness! This book puts the magic in the hands of the audience as you go through the book and it asks you to perform various magic tricks by pointing your fingers, tapping pages, and of course, speaking the magic words. My kids love interactive books like these and they responded even more enthusiastically than I had thought they would! We had to read this one twice in a row because they enjoyed it so much and I have a feeling this will become one of the books I know by heart one day!
This book was another really great one and might be a tie for first place with the magic book! In this story, our main character wants a pet monster of her own, after all, all of her friends have one! After convincing her father that she knows all about monsters and how to take care of them, they head to the Monsterium and pick out their own adorable monster. The rest of the pages describe how she cares for it and all of the silly things that happen, but where this book really shines is at the end when it provides some pages where it encourages you to draw your own pet monster and decide what it eats and what its personality is like! The kids and I had a great conversation about this as an extension of the story. I also really enjoyed all of the various styles of text with dialogue and lots of fun sound effects.
Verdict: This month’s selections from Tiny Humans Read were really great for our family! Brave Ben was cute, but the other two books were really fantastic and were definitely our favorites. The books were all unique and fun and had a total retail value of $48.93 which is great for a $24.99/month (plus free shipping) box! Even with sale prices, the total comes to $29.71 which is higher than the cost of our box.
