Our first Usborne Books & More Book Subscription box was delivered today and it was the perfect distraction from little lady’s teething pain. Our subscription includes boxes over 3 months, each with 4 new releases and a small gift for the 3-5 age range. We opened the box and immediately started reading.

January Book Box Subscription - Jaime's Book Corner

Kitty Kat, Kitty Kat, Where Have You Been? Washington D.C. was my favorite. Being from Virginia, it reminded me a little bit of home and I think it’s a great, age-appropriate introduction to all the important monuments and cool kid places to go. Lizard in a Blizzard was little lady’s choice (not surprising, considering her current obsession with all phonics books).

The Alphabet of Peculiar Creatures is a unique take on an A to Z book and I love that it includes pronunciation guides. Otherwise, I would have NO idea how to say half of the name of the creatures! The facts were a thrill to read too – did you know that a mara is a relative of the guinea pig or that binturongs give off a strong smell similar to buttered popcorn? Yeah, neither did I!

Lastly, I love the inclusion of a Shine-a-Light book! If you’re not familiar, these books truly set Usborne Books & More apart from competitors, they are like nothing you’ve ever seen before in a children’s book! Kids can reveal a secret image in the illustrations just by shining a flashlight behind each page. All this fun is happening while they’re learning at the same time too because this collection is non-fiction.

The newest addition is At the Library. This was such an approachable way to learn about everything libraries have to offer, I even learned a few things (but then again, I always do from our non-fiction books).

Aside from the books, this box also included 4 bookmarks and a new spring catalog.

I’m already excited to receive our February box!

Did you miss out on the subscription this time? Contact me and I will create one for you based on your budget and age of your child.

Happy reading!
