Everything was shipped in a plain white, narrow box.
A peek inside!
An info card welcomed us to November’s box and listed all of the chosen titles for each of the 6 genre options. — I had chosen Children 3-7 and Children 8-12.
My “Children 3-7” selection was a silly, yet educational book about how poor Pluto felt when he got the call letting him know that he wasn’t a planet anymore. Little Pluto takes us on a tour of the solar system, introducing us to all of his planet friends along the way. The pages are sprinkled with plenty of planet-related jokes and puns, making it relatable to children in the 3-7 age range. I recently found out that my 4-year-old nephew is obsessed with space, so I think I’ll have to include this book as part of his Christmas gift — if my girls let me part with it, that is. 😉
The “Children 8-12” pick was a thrilling adventure about a brave girl who finds a portal to parallel worlds, and must protect her secret from the evil forces trying to capture it.
All her life, Tess has lived at Miss Ackerbee’s orphanage with her friends and her pet tarantula, Violet. But one day, a mysterious man named Mr. Cleat shows up and whisks Tess away to live with him. Before Tess leaves, Miss Ackerbee gives her a strange lens, and makes an even stranger admission: that Tess can travel to parallel worlds, and has been able to do so since she was found as a baby. Now, with her newfound abilities and the mysterious lens in tow, Tess must navigate life with Mr. Cleat and his nefarious housekeeper, who seem to be up to more than they let on. As Tess learns about the lens and its role in transporting her to other worlds, she discovers that behind Mr. Cleat’s oily smiles is a darker intention: one that could bring the world to its feet. Can Tess keep her secret from Mr. Cleat, and figure out what he’s up to? And what if the lens falls into the wrong hands? With the help of Violet and her friends from the orphanage, Tess can finally discover the truth about Mr. Cleat and, more importantly, herself.
My girls are still a little young for this book, but I’ll hold onto it until they’re ready.
The surprise gift this month was a festive pair of book-themed socks! This pair is extra cozy and features a fun snowflake/winter theme combined with an open book print design. — The perfect pair for snuggling up with a book on a cold winter’s day. 🙂 Bonus: Each purchase of Out of Print socks helps to fund literacy programs & donate books to communities in need. Nice!
November’s MyBookBox featured two great books and a super snuggly pair of socks to enjoy your winter reading with cozy toes. 😉 As promised, the selections were ideal for my chosen age ranges and the socks were the perfect winter inclusion. 😀 — Remember, for a limited time, you can save 10% on your first box with coupon code ROSEBUDS!
