Inside the Lillypost May 2022 Box
Lillypost always sends us a set of Finnley the Fox stickers along with a little note that introduces their coloring contest for the month. Kids can draw directly on the box and incorporate Finnley into the monthly theme, then share it on social media for a chance to win a prize. This month is all about flowers for spring!
Little World: Jungle Journey by Ladybird - Listed Value $8.99
This jungle-themed book is full of vibrant colors and cute animals! It also has some great descriptive language throughout, and even better, there are fun tabs to pull and open making it a great tactile experience for little ones as well. Some of the tabs actually surprised us and had more tabs inside of them, opening it up to be quite tall! And of course, it melted my mama heart when my son was reading it to the baby.
The baby definitely loved the bright colors!
Lone Wolf by Sarah Kurpiel - Listed Value $17.99
Firstly, I really loved the sweet aesthetic of this book with the muted, neutral tones and the simple illustrations. Maple the family dog looks just like a wolf and so she sets out to see if maybe she might really be one. In the end, she finds out that being a wolf is a lot harder than she thought! My kiddos and I enjoyed this sweet and funny tail. 😉
Smug Seagull by Maddie Frost - Listed Value $17.99
To finish out our books this month, we ended on a silly note with the book that was probably the kids' favorite. If you've been to the beach, you may be familiar with just how pesky those seagulls can be (ever had your toddler spill Goldfish crackers? It's downright terrifying!). The seagull in our story is quite smug about his swiping skills, until one day he seems to lose his swipe! Luckily there is a nice little crab who shows him that there is another way to get what he wants. This book was funny and charming, and I loved the comic-book style throughout!
