Every month, Bookcase.Club includes activities for children in their Read to Me Case. My son can’t get enough of them! They’re the first thing my son asks for as soon as he opens his box every month.
In addition to the word scramble, the package contained four picture books: “Murilla Gorilla” by Jennifer Lloyd, “The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat” by Coral Rumble, “Aw, Nuts!” by Rob McClurkan and “Crankenstein” by Samantha Berger.
“Murilla Gorilla, Jungle Detective” by Jennifer Lloyd ($9.86) is a story about Murilla, a detective charged with solving the mystery of the missing banana muffins. She interviews suspects, takes notes in a journal and analyzes footprints until she finds the culprit. Along the way, she meets a host of different African animals and learns what each of them likes to eat. My kids love learning about animals, and they enjoyed this book very much.
In “The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat” ($6.99), two children dress up and go on an adventure through their imaginations. With cute illustrations and a new adventure on each set of pages, my kids found this book to be very engaging. Although I found some of the rhymes a bit uneven, I still enjoyed the book.
“Aw, Nuts!” by Rob McClurkan ($15.10) is adorable! In it, a squirrel decides that he just has to have a particular acorn, and as a result, sets off on a wild adventure to capture it. Along his journey, there are many hiccups, each resulting in the squirrel declaring, “Aw, Nuts!” My five-year-old enjoyed this very much. He hadn’t ever heard anyone say “Aw, Nuts!” before, so he was a little perplexed at first. I have a feeling, though, I’m going to be hearing that phrase a lot from now on!
“Crankenstein” by Samantha Berger ($12.70) is the story of a young crankenstein – someone parents of young, tired kids can understand all too easily, I’m afraid. My kids thought it was really funny. We all snickered when two crankensteins saw each other’s antics and started to laugh.
My kids love this subscription! Whenever the box arrives, my kids always gather around to see what goodies are inside. I’m thrilled that this subscription brings so much joy and quality family time to our home each month.
I really enjoyed this month’s Read to Me Case from BookCase.Club! All four of these books were new to us, and we will happily read them again and again. These books were all engaging and included great, age appropriate messages and themes. The value was great too – over $44 worth of books for $14.99! And for each new subscription, they donate a book to Books for Keeps in the Classic City, Athens, GA! This subscription is a real win for us. We can’t wait to see what they send next month!
