What is Bookroo? It is a subscription book service for kids! How awesome is that? About a month ago I was introduced to Bookroo my friend (and fellow blogger) Emily. After looking into the company a bit more, and really liking what I saw, I ordered our first box and then anxiously waited. I knew this would be a great addition to our reading for the 100 Books in August challenge, and they did not disappoint. When the package arrived at our house last week, to say I was impressed would be an understatement. The wrapping alone was lovely.
Inside were two, individually wrapped hardbacks: Hugless Douglas and the Big Sleepover and Pirate Nap: A Book of Colrs. My boys loved the surprise of each getting to open a new book. We paused our in-progress art lesson to read both books right away.
The stories were great, with cute illustrations. Hugless Douglas and the Big Sleepover is a fun story about a bear heading to a sleepover at his friend Rabbit’s house and what happens when he brings along lots of extra friends. It’s a perfect bedtime story. We will be taking it along for my kids’ next sleepover with their cousins.
Pirate Nap is the story of some cute little pirate brothers (and their baby sister – perfect for my crew!) and their colorful adventures before naptime. It was obviously a fast favorite of my boys. The rest of the afternoon they could be heard shouting pirate lingo as they crafted a boat from a cardboard box, made a flag, and had their own adventures.
THAT is my favorite thing about reading.Want to know more? Head on over to Bookroo.com to start your own subscription!
