A few weeks back Jane over at bookroo asked us to review her kids book subscription service. Now, our kids are a little older but Sophia still loves picture books and I have to admit we were both very excited to see what our first month subscription would bring! Let just say it felt like Christmas in July when our packaged arrived; each book was beautifully wrapped in vibrant colored paper and finished off with a sweet little ribbon. Since we went with the picture book subscription starting at $17.50 we received 2 books but you can go also choose the board book subscription and receive 3 books each month at the same very low price. They offer month-to-month, three-month, and six-month subscription packages.
Here is what came in our first months subscription:
Dream away, dream away, sleepyhead, love
Set sail for the ocean of stars up above.
You be the captain and I’ll be your mate.
We’ll journey together, the heavens await.
From author Julia Durango and new illustrator Robert Goldstrom, a story of the dreams that are possible as you drift to sleep. A father and son venture into a dream and encounter some new and familiar faces and along the way discover the possibilities the universe can hold. This is a soothing, rhythmic poem that is perfect for bedtime reading.
From Author Catherine Rayner: Norris the bear has been waiting patiently for the last ripe fruit to fall from the tree. But Tulip the raccoon and Violet the mouse have too . . . although maybe not so patiently. In fact, Tulip and Violet sniff, listen to, and even hug the fruit. Norris catches the fruit when it finally falls, and because he is a wise bear, he shares it and makes two new friends. A lovely simplicity of language and gorgeous artwork makes this story of one of life’s very first lessons perfect for the youngest listeners. This little treasure will not only teach your little ones how to share but this will also help them to build friendships down the road.
