Bookroo Board Book June 2020 Review

 

Bookroo sends the books individually wrapped each month which is such a nice treat. I love that ice cream paper!

 

Bookroo always includes an insert that gives a brief description of the books you receive with the board book box selections listed on one side and the picture book box selections on the other. They encourage you to share your books on social media and to leave a review of your book.

 

Tiny Blessings for All Seasons by Amy Parker – Retail Value $7.99

This first book is so simple, but I love the cute (and diverse!) characters throughout. There are about 5 pages, each mentioning a different season with a fun illustration to go along with it and then a final page where they give thanks for them all. It’s cute and simple, but it teaches a sweet lesson about being thankful and counting your blessings no matter how small they may seem.

 

You See, I See In the City by Michelle Sinclair Colman – Retail Value $7.99

Our second book is another simple one, but I just love the premise! It’s a girl and her father making their way through the city and each of them describes what they see which is different based on their perspective. Sometimes the perspective changes due to visibility, or they just may take notice of different things because of what stands out to them based on their personal preferences. It’s a cute book that helps you take in your surroundings and see things in new ways. This book is perfect for my kids and who like to play “I Spy” wherever we go which is a great way to have some fun as we discover new places and go on adventures!

 

Bear’s Scare by Jacob Grant – Retail Value $7.99

We actually already own the picture book version of this story and since it’s such a cute one, it will be nice to be able to gift this to someone else! Bear discovers that a spider has begun to inhabit his home leaving messes of webs all over the place. He searches high and low for this spider so that he can get rid of him, but in the end, he finds that the spider is not a nuisance, but can become a new friend. The illustrations and characters are really cute and it’s a fun story that my kiddos enjoy!

Verdict: This month’s Bookroo selections were cute and well rounded this month! We had three different stories ranging from very simple, to one that was a bit longer with more of a storyline. I always love a good mix and this month I appreciated that there was some diversity amongst the characters. The retail value of these three books comes to $23.97, which is just a bit under the box cost of $24.94 ($19.95 a month + $4.99 shipping). While you never really get a great value when it comes to board book boxes since they retail for so much less, I still think it was a fun box and I love that these books are previously vetted for us and come wrapped up so nicely!

  1. Normally, my 18 month granddaughter absolutely LOVES Bool\kroo but this month was a real dud! These 3 books are ugly, too abstract for a baby her age and not interesting at all. We offer to read them to here but she throws them in the floor and gets another Bookroo book from the bookshelf. This was a very disapointiing month. I hope this is not the beginning of a trend.
