The Snow Bear by Sean Taylor ($13.50)

Snow comes in the night, and Iggy and Martina make a snowbear. But then a sledge ridge takes them deep into the woods. How will they get back home again?

The Snowbear is a spellbinding story about the magic of snow and the power of a child’s imagination. With a simple text and beautiful illlustrations, it will be read again and again. Themes of friendship, loyalty, and bravery make it a great choice for story time, as a bedtime read or on car trips. Children will love the crisp, wintry setting brought to life by Claire Alexander’s art.

We love the cover design, but our copy came with blue stains.

The back has an illustration of the woods where the story takes place. It’s a great read for winter!

The story synopsis can also be found on the flap of the book’s dust jacket.

The illustrations are cute and adorable, while the story is compelling for children. It definitely captures the fun of childhood. It’s a great bedtime read!

The text is simple and child-friendly. My kids also picked up some vocabulary words from it!

Book by David Miles ($12.99)

In a world dazzled by the latest gadgets and mesmerized by Internet videos, the humble book seems like the most ordinary thing that could be. And perhaps it is—until you learn to look closer . . . and closer . . . and closer . . . and you’re suddenly in a world that only you can imagine.

With soft, warm storytelling and stunning, whimsical illustrations, Book embarks the reader on an imaginative journey through the literary lands of fact and fiction, a world where passwords, viruses, and broken screens can’t stop a young boy’s earnest quest for truth. Join in this celebration of literature, scrape the skies of opportunity, traverse the forests of what-could-be, free the powers of knowledge, and discover once again why the humble book is anything but ordinary.

This book is jampacked with information about… books! The idea is pretty unique and we love it!

The book’s endpaper features colorful letterings!

My kids found the illustrations amusing! They can’t help but stare at it and marvel at the details.

The text is great for reading aloud!

My kids enjoyed both books this month. They have different art styles and storytelling techniques but both are wonderful and interesting, worthy of reading over and over again. Reading is a great way of building a child’s vocabulary and this subscription has been a great help in introducing us to the best reads for children.
