I was generously given a free sample of the monthly book subscription BookRoo! (In exchange for an honest review).
It was so exciting to receive a box in the mail full of surprise books—who doesn’t love getting packages in the mail?! Each book came individually wrapped in beautiful wrapping paper. They were picked out by the Bookroo team to be some of the best books for the age range you select (but unique enough that you won’t already have them in your collections!) To learn more about how they choose books, go here.
I received two children’s hardcover picture books in this box:
The Very Fluffy Papillon | A.N. Kang
This is an adorable story about a cat who is so fluffy that he floats away. His owner desperately tries to weigh him down by dressing him in ridiculous outfits. Since he’s a cat, he really hates that. One day he sees a bird and floats away after it. This book is filled with simple, but cute images of the very expressive kitty. I think children will laugh aloud at this silly book. I read it to my dog and he sat and wagged his tail to this tale.
The Spelling Bee Before Recess | Deborah Lee Rose
This book flows to the same rhythm as the book Twas The Night Before Christmas (Although some pages didn’t have as nice of a flow). It is a great book for teaching vocabulary since it is about a spelling bee. It would be a good chance for parents and teachers to discuss these words. The back of the book even has the full list of vocabulary words used in the story. The images are very colorful and I think children will laugh at the silly combinations that are based on the spelling bee words. I tried reading this one to my dog, but it was a little too long for him to sit and listen to.
If you are interested in subscribing to this box, you can go here. You can order a single box or subscribe to receive one each month. They ship the first business day after the 15th of each month. Subscriptions renew the 15th of each month.
They have two boxes. The one I reviewed was the Picture Book Box (2 books designed for ages 2-6). They also have a Board Book Box (3 books designed for ages 0-2). They are in beta for a Junior Box (ages 7-10). The prices are the same for the different boxes. It is $17.99 for a single month, $49.98 for three months, $97.97 for six months, and $191.88 for a year. Prices do not include shipping and handling. The subscriptions renew automatically, but you can cancel at any time. They ship to anywhere in the US and Canada.
The coolest thing I discovered is that they offer a 50% discount for teachers and students!! More info on that here.
I highly recommend this box! Have fun receiving your surprise books for your children each month!!
