What’s better than receiving new books? Receiving new books beautifully wrapped that are just waiting for the paper to be torn, and the twine to become undone so you can see what’s beneath! My kids were so excited to receive their first shipment of books from Bookroo. Bookroo is an awesome children’s book subscription which curates the books that are sent to you on a monthly basis. It’s such a wonderful way to check out new authors you haven’t heard of. Michael and Fiona recently received two new picture books, and they each came packaged individually in pretty recycled paper which immediately peaked their curiosity.
The first book was called Chamelia and the New Kid in Class which retails anywhere from $15.16 -$21.58 on Amazon. The book was timely as my son started Kindergarten this year. The book tells the story of the new kid in class and how Chamelia feels a little left out, after so used to being in the spotlight. Does Chamelia try and stand out even more or make a new friend?
The second book was called Sleepover with Beatrice and Bear which retails anywhere from $14.36 to $20.98 on Amazon. My daughter loved this book! This story is about an adorable bunny and bear who become fast friends in the spring and fall, only for winter to come around and the bear to go missing. When the bunny learns what hibernation is and realizes she won’t be able to spend the season with her friend, she figures out a cute way to bring winter to the bear after hibernation is over.
A monthly subscription runs $17.99 a month (plus $5 shipping) but the price comes down if you extend the subscription for multiple months. These two books would have been $30 on Amazon, plus shipping.
I wish I had a chance to photograph the box the books were shipped in. There was a cute handwritten note to Michael and Fiona. Unfortunately, as soon as they realized the box was for them they immediately took it to themselves to tear into it before I could grab the camera!
Bookroo has come up with a lovely way to instill and nurture a love of reading in children. I was so pleasantly surprised by the box we received. Michael and Fiona can’t wait to see and read what comes next!
As always, thank you for stopping by, have the best week ahead!
