A peek inside! — As always, I chose the “Read to Me” Case which includes 4 children’s books.
Where Bear? by Sophy Henn ($7.99 Amazon, $16.99 Retail)
“Where Bear?” tells the story of a little boy who lives with his bear friend. One day he realizes that the bear has grown too big to continue living in his house, so they both go out in search of a new home for bear. They consider a toy store, circus, jungle, and various other locations until they finally settle upon the arctic. The book is nicely illustrated and has repetitive text that makes it appealing to little ones.
Vincent and the Night by Adele Enersen ($13.46 Amazon, $16.99 Retail)
Baby Vincent isn’t ready for bed, so he uses the night sky as his paintbrush to draw up a series of distractions to keep him busy. He creates a pirate ship, a clothesline, an elephant, and more… until he finally gives in to the call of sleep.
I’m Not Tired Yet! by Marianne Richmond ($10.22 Amazon, $16.99 Retail)
Another tale about a little boy who doesn’t want to go to sleep, this story features 6-year-old Ralphie and his very patient mom. Ralphie keeps coming up with excuse after excuse as to why he can’t go to bed, with his mother responding with playful “enormous ape hugs”, “polar bear cuddles”, and “goldfish kisses”. Eventually, his excuses run out and Ralphie finally falls asleep. I don’t think this story would actually help kids get to bed any faster, but it was a cute read nonetheless.
Young Cam Jansen and the Knock, Knock Mystery by David A. Adler ($4.70 Amazon, $14.99 Retail)
Aimed at Level 3 readers (6-8 year olds), this short chapter book looks to solve the mystery of the knocking noise that’s keeping Cam’s grandparents awake at night. Cam is gifted with a photographic memory, which she uses to piece together the source of the knocking. A short, engaging book for 1st-3rd graders.
We really enjoyed September’s BookCase.Club selections. Our favorites were “Where Bear?” and “I’m Not Tired Yet”. — Using Amazon prices, the total value this month was over $36. 🙂 — Remember, if you’d like to sign up you can save 15% on your first month with coupon code “Rosebuds15“!
September 2017 BookCase.Club Box Review
While the value wasn’t as high as previous months, it was still over the cost of the box and we enjoyed all of the selections. 🙂
