When Bookroo agreed to do a review with me I was super excited. The small human was even more excited when we got it! Each book was individually wrapped in adorable wrapping paper, so it was like christmas and he was super excited about that! He got two books, Wally does not want a hair cut and the Red Boat.
Wally Does Not Want A Haircut by Amanda Driscoll, is about a ewe who is afraid to get his hair cut! Let me tell you, this was a great read because getting a certain young mans hair cut is usually a nightmare. Mostly in part because we use an electric razor and I am almost 100% sure its the sound. This book is about facing your fears and how everyone around you can help to overcome those fears.
The Red Boat by Hannah Cumming is about a young girl that moves to a new home. I think that no matter what age you are, moving can be terrifying. I know that all too well. A year ago me and D2 made the life changing choice to move to Idaho so that we could be closer to our daughters. For D2 this was almost nothing, he would be moving back to his home town. for me this was terrifying. I was moving 1400 miles away from my ENTIRE family and my friends. Even to this day it is rough. I am however learning to overcome and adapt. Just like Posey and her dog George. This book is like the first, where you must learn to overcome your fears. When you do this you will find it gets easier! This book also encourages imagination and play.
I loved both of the books, but Mr Mans favorite is the red boat. I read it to him and then he made daddy read it to him a little bit later!
After having this experience we will most certainly be doing a subscription! When you get the subscription you can choose between two and three books to be delivered, depending upon age. You can choose from Board Books, which comes with three books for ages zero to three. Picture books which come with two books ages two to six and chapter books that will come with two books for ages seven to ten! You may purchase this for your kids or as a gift!
I love the idea of a book subscription as a gift! This would make an excellent baby shower gift or first birthday gift! When I had my baby shower for mr. Man I asked for books in lieu of cards. I have noticed this is becoming more and more of a trend! This would make the perfect gift for any little one in your life!
