Last month I introduced the latest addition to BookCase.Club, which was the new kid’s boxes. This is a late unboxing, but January’s box was so loved that my nieces and nephew had to take it home the day they opened it. It filled them with such joy and wonder to discover what books were in the box, and trying to read through each one on their own as all three talked about the cover, and what they thought the stories were about. I was able to get one photo after it opened, which is up on my Instagram.
BBC 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 when signing up.
The Kid’s box allows children of all ages to experience the magic of reading by receiving a monthly shipment of books suited for their age range. When you subscribed, you will pick a theme, and there are selections for every age group, offering kid cases from newborn up till pre-teen. Each case contains 3, handpicked, gender specific books. The Pre-Teen contains 2 handpicked books. Note: 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.
The cost for this subscription box costs $9.99 a month, which is an affordable price that allows not only your child, but you, to receive a BBC box. There are multiple plans when it comes to payments, ranging from $9.99 a month to 12 months for $100.
Below are the books that were in the January BookCase.Club Kid’s box for 7-8 years old. Summaries and cover photo are sourced to Goodreads, and retail prices are from Book Depository’s website.
Despicable Me: My Dad the Super Villain by Lucy Rosen ($3.99)
This exciting early reader, based on the animated film, Despicable Me, from Universal Studios, follows aspiring “world’s greatest villain” Gru on his quest for universal domination…until his plan hits an unexpected snag. Lively illustrations and simple, engaging text provide a terrific learning experience in this story about the power of family.
Murilla Gorilla, the jungle detective, is woken up by a new case: Ms. Chimpanzee’s muffins were stolen. But who did it? It’s up to Murilla to find out… as long as she can find her badge first! Murilla may seem like a hopeless detective—disorganized, messy and always thinking about her next snack—but out of her mess come some pretty good ideas, and some pretty funny moments too.
Labracadabra by Jessie Nelson, Karen Leigh Hopkins ($15.16)
Zach isn’t impressed with his new dog, Larry, at first. He’d hoped for a chocolate lab or a spaniel, not this funny looking mish-mash of a dog with a great long tail. And who names a dog “Larry,” anyway? But Zach discovers that when Larry twirls that ridiculously long tail – Labracadabra! – amazing things happen. It’s not very long before Zach knows that he and Larry will be Best Friends Forever!
When it comes to BBC, there are genres from everyone. If you want to subscribe to more than one theme, just select the genre you want, pick a payment plan, and it will be included in your cart at checkout–it’s that easy! If you want to switch an age group or genre, you can do so when you access your account, which makes it simple and convenient to receive the age appropriate book box as your child grows.
BookCase.Club is one of my favorite book subscriptions out there on the market today because it allows me to receive a quality curated box each month for a reasonable price that is well worth the value, while introducing my nieces and nephew into the world of reading.
