Here's What's Inside

This month we received 3 board books that centered on topics related to Spring including gardening, the changing of seasons, and the sky. Let's take a closer look at each book below!

The Little Gardener (Teenie Greenies) by Jan Gerardi — Retail Value $6.99

I thought this book provided a fun and simple way to learn about what goes into gardening from beginning to end. It's more of a word book than an in-depth story, but that was perfectly fine since my littles are both under 2. My daughter enjoyed learning about new tools and especially loved the pictures related to water, flowers, and birds. She also got a kick out of flipping up the flaps throughout the book to discover hidden images. Definitely a great read by us!

When Spring Comes by Kevin Henkes (Author), Laura Dronzek (Illustrator) — Retail Value $7.99

The cover won my daughter over immediately as she currently has 3 cat siblings (and would have more if we let her). The book contrasted winter with spring and showed what the changing of the seasons looks like. My daughter got to see how a winter land that's covered in snow eventually transforms into a beautiful sunny spring teeming with critters and green grass. I appreciated that both the prior book and this one explained what transitions are in life and showed how some events require patience, like waiting for a seed to shoot up into a plant or for a baby bird to hatch out of an egg. Oh, I should mention we live in central Florida, which means seeing snow in books is about as close to true winter weather as she'll experience for now.

Little Cloud by Eric Carle — Retail Value $8.99

Little Cloud, the main character, embarks on a fun journey of changing shapes which involves becoming an airplane, a shark, a bunny, and more. While he greatly enjoys his adventure, he eventually decides to drift back to his cloud friends where they join forces to become a giant rain cloud. Perhaps I need to try harder when looking for different shapes with my daughter in real life? 😅

Value - Was This Box Worth It?

The Cost: $19.95 per month + $4.95 shipping to the US.

Value Breakdown: This subscription costs $24.90 including shipping. The 3 books that we were sent in the 0-3 age range for January retail at $23.97 and the additional cost for stickers probably cost around $2. If you take into consideration the standard price of shipping on Amazon or other suppliers, then the total retail value is slightly higher than what you pay each month. Not to mention, you receive a carefully curated selection of books, and some fun activity prompts!

Key Takeaways

StoryCaptain's March box provided a fun and simple way to learn about the changing of seasons and specific events related to spring. My daughter's favorite book was The Little Gardener due to flipping up the flaps to find hidden images. This was also my favorite book for this month since it provided an easy way to expand her vocabulary of springtime words. We also really enjoyed learning about seasonal transitions in When Spring Comes and thought the different shapes of clouds in Little Cloud were cool, too.

On the off chance I'm not chasing after my kids (or breaking up a looming brawl between them and the cats), you can most likely find me training in the pool, sipping on an Americano at my local coffee shop, or hiding in our spare room to catch up on my favorite podcasts.
