It is time for another unboxing, and who doesn’t like book mail? This one is perfect for introducing books to the little ones, and letting them explore their imaginations so stick around to learn more.
If you have no heard, BookCase.Club is a monthly subscription service that delivers books to your doorstep that are handpicked by their curators with your reading preferences in mind, based on the theme you choose. This month I have the pleasure of introducing and reviewing the latest addition to the service–BookCase.Club Kids!*
Now children of all ages can experience the magic of reading, and receive a monthly shipment of books. You will see at the top of the homepage, there is a link to BookCase Kids–not to be confused with Read to Me, offered as one of the original 8 cases. To begin, you will pick a theme, and there are selections for every age group, offering kid cases from newborn up till pre-teen. The themes are Newborn-2, 2-4, 5-6, 7-8, and Pre-Teen. Each case contains 3, handpicked, gender specific books. The Pre-Teen contains 2 handpicked books.
There are multiple payment plans, so whether you want month-to-month that costs $9.99, or a prepaid plan such as 3 Months for $28, 6 Months for $54, or 12 Months for $100, they gives you options. This is an affordable literary subscription service for the young readers in your life, and it is a great way to introduce your children to the written word while receiving fun packages in the mail monthly. All cases are shipped on the 1st of the month, and be sure to share the experience on social media with #BCCUnBoxing.
Below are the books that were in the December BookCase.Club Kid’s box for 7-8 years old. Summaries are sourced from Goodreads, and retail prices listed are from the title’s back cover.
Boogie Knights by Lisa Wheeler, Mark Siegel ($16.99)
In this rip-roaring picture book, readers are invited to the party of the year, as all monsters large and small throw the most outrageous, most bodacious bash of them all–the Madcap Monster Ball.
The Fires of Calderon by Lindsay Cummings ($16.99)
The first book in an epic middle grade fantasy adventure series that takes place in an underground society at the center of the earth. Packed with action, humor, magic, and mystery.
After following a mysterious map into the woods and then under the woods, eleven-year-old Albert Flynn learns he’s a Balance Keeper—someone with special magical skills for fixing problems in three underground Realms at the Core of the earth. His new job is important; if the realms fall out of balance, the world above could be in great danger.
Albert and his Balance Keeper teammates Birdie and Leroy arrive in the Core not a moment too soon. There’s an Imbalance in the Calderon Realm and it’s threatening to bury Albert’s hometown of New York City in a mountain of ash.
The three must train hard completing mental and physical challenges, but above all, they must harness the power of their Tiles—unique superpowers given to each Balance Keeper. So far, Albert’s mastered the art of not mastering his Tile….
With the situation in Calderon growing worse every day, can Albert, Leroy, and Birdie restore balance before New York is destroyed forever? Will Albert master his Tile before it’s too late?
Wanderville by Wendy McClure ($16.99)
Jack, Frances, and Frances’s younger brother Harold have been ripped from the world they knew in New York and sent to Kansas on an orphan train at the turn of the century. As the train chugs closer and closer to its destination, the children begin to hear terrible rumors about the lives that await them. And so they decide to change their fate the only way they know how. . . .
They jump off the train.
There, in the middle of the woods, they meet a boy who will transform their lives forever. His name is Alexander, and he tells them they’ve come to a place nobody knows about—especially not adults—and “where all children in need of freedom are accepted.” It’s a place called Wanderville, Alexander says, and now Jack, Frances, and Harold are its very first citizens.
