Bookroo Board Book October 2020 Review
Bookroo sends the books individually wrapped each month and it makes for such a nice presentation!
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.
Who's Hiding with Tiger? by Vincent Mathy - Retail Value $8.99
When I first saw this book, I thought it might be a bit too young for my crew to enjoy (my youngest is 2.5), but it has animals in it, so my animal-loving 4-year-old has already stolen this book. He loves the toucan page! I love that the pages are super thick and chunky and the colors are very bright and appealing. As for the subject matter, it's a cute little book of peek-a-boo with some adorable animals and it would be so fun for any little one!
What a gorgeous little book this is! While again, I thought it might be a bit too young for my kids who all already know their colors, I had a really good time reading this one with my 2.5-year-old! He was able to tell me the colors and then I was able to ask him to count the objects on the page and ask him what was going on and he seemed to be really engaged with it. It also has little areas with cutouts that have different textures inside which is perfect for little fingers to explore!
Little Bitty Friends by Elizabeth McPike - Retail Value $6.99
This last book is one of those super cute books that I always loved reading with my babies. This book has beautiful illustrations as they talk about all of the little bitty things with rhyming text. It's simple and it's cute, plus it is full of diverse characters and some adorable critters like that little turtle on the front!
Verdict: I thought this was a great month of Bookroo selections for the 0-2 age range. There were bright colors, textures, and a lot of sweetness. Some of the illustrations were really beautiful, too, which I appreciate as an adult. I really enjoyed reading these with my kiddos. The total retail value of the books comes to $25.97, which is just over the cost of this box at $24.94 ($19.95 a month + $4.99 shipping). Board books are not always the best value in a subscription since they retail for less than picture books, but I think with a longer subscription, it could definitely make it worth it!
