The wonderful people at Kid Curated Books sent me a box for my children! I reached out to them after seeing an ad on Facebook, I loved the idea that each box is curated for your child, depending on their age, interests, and genres that they may be interested in.
I gave the curators the information that my children were 1 and 4, a boy and a girl, and they loved silly books like Dragons Love Tacos and classics like Corduroy. The curator of our box was Melissa, and I think she did a fantastic job.
I would have posted a picture of the box, which was put together very nicely! But, the mail lady decided to leave it in two feet of snow and it got soaked, luckily none of the books inside were damaged.
Let me tell you about what was in the box, first we got a great book mark, and a hand written note-which was very sweet!
Then we get to the good stuff, the books!
First we have Ten Little Ladybugs by Melanie Gerth- this one was for my daughter, who saw it first and grabbed it, and has not let go since.
Then there is We’re All Wonders by R.J. Palacio, based on the novel Wonder. This book tells the sweet story of Auggie, and how even though he’s different, it’s okay. A powerful message that my four year old really enjoys, he even goes around saying “Mom, we’re ALL wonders!”
Next, I think this is the favorite book in the bunch, Someday A Bird Will Poop on You by Sue Salvi. This book is hilarious, and pretty true! We got a kick out of this one for sure.
Finally, we have The Boy who Loved Math by Deborah Heiligman. Which is a great story about Paul Erdös, a mathematician. The illustrations in this book are great, and the numbers on the pages really help my son learn as we read the story.
We didn’t have any of these books, so getting this package was really fun. Watching my children’s eyes light up was the best part of this whole thing! I enjoyed this, and we’ve been reading the books every day since.
You can get this subscription box for just $34.99 a month, which is a bargain because the books in this box are pretty high priced! Plus, the fun factor makes it all worth it. I was thinking of doing this again for each of my kid’s birthdays, next time I’ll try to get a video of them opening it, so you can see the joy on their faces.
All in all, this was definitely worth it! The books are so fun, the quality is top notch, and the age groups are from baby to teen, it’s really incredible, go check them out!
