Lil’ Bear Book Club is a new subscription box that sends 2 to 4 children’s books to your door every month.
There are two different subscription types to choose from: board books (3-4 per box) or picture books (2-4 per box). Whichever plan you choose, each book will be gift wrapped for your child to open. This also makes it great for gift-giving for holidays, birthdays, etc. A portion of the sale of each Lil’ Bear Book Club subscription is always donated to children in need.
Subscriptions are $16.99/month for board books and $17.99/month for picture books. Discounts are available on multi-month plans. — For a limited time, you can save 10% on your first month with coupon code “MYBEAR“.
Let’s see what’s in my April 2016 Lil’ Bear Book Club box!
Everything was shipped in a big white box with a Lil’ Bear Book Club sticker on the lid.
A peek inside!
Each of the books were individually wrapped in colorful, kid-appropriate paper.
Animal Wonder Everyday Rhymes ($12.76) – This interactive board book features a different animal (or two) on each page, along with a short poem. The text can be read and heard by pressing the round play button positioned on each respective animal. A nice change of pace from your standard, non-speaking board books. 😉
Dinosaur Train Buddy the Junior Conductor ($1?) – It looks like this book isn’t available for purchase anywhere except by third party sellers on Amazon, so I wasn’t able to find a value for it. I know I’ve seen books similar to this at the dollar store, so I’m going with $1. It’s a cute book for fans of the PBS show Dinosaur Train, but my kiddos are all about Daniel Tiger and never want to watch this when it’s on. Ah well.
Jack and the Beanstalk by George Bridge ($10.99) – I would have loved this oversized board book (roughly 10″ x 10″) if it had been of almost any other story. Jack and the Beanstalk is such a weird, creepy tale and the illustrations in this particular book make it all the more… bothersome? Plenty of fodder for nightmares. (Like that photo above… yikes!) Otherwise, it’s a quality book with lots of highlighted text to encourage word recognition.
While I didn’t enjoy this month’s Lil’ Bear Book Club selections as much as the ones from March, it was still fun to unwrap them and see what we got. Not everyone will like the same books, so an off month is bound to happen. The total value (using Amazon prices) was once again around $24, which is more than the cost of the monthly subscription. 🙂
