LITTLE FUN CLUB BLOG TOUR w/ Review

Little Fun Club blog tour. A subscription box for children's books. Great for kids ages 0-12.

About Little Fun Club:

Little Fun Club is a subscription box for children's books. It's ideal for kids ages 0-12. When you sign up, your child will receive a box containing three adventurous books every month. The books are tailored to your child's age, so you can rest assured they will always have quality, age-appropriate reading material. Each book is hand selected for your child, and no two boxes are the same.  

How it Works:

  1. Join Little Fun Club and let them know your child's age so the box can be customized for them. You can include up to three kids per box and they'll customize it accordingly.
  2. Get three adventurous books every month for as little as $25/month.
  3. Grow with Little Fun Club. As your child gets older, the books change accordingly — so you'll always receive age-appropriate books for your kids. 

Good to Know:

  1. You can add a note to your child's account with reading preferences so the box can be tailored to their interests.
  2. Shipping is FREE on all boxes.
  3. Little Fun Club selects books based on merit. Books go through a rigorous selection process and are read and reviewed by the Little Fun Club team before being considered.
  4. If you receive a book that you already own, just let Little Fun Club know about it. They'll replace the book in the next box! You don't have to return anything.
  5. You can cancel or put your subscription hold at any time.
  6. A Little Fun Club subscription makes a wonderful gift for birthdays, holidays, or just because.
The final product is a box filled with education, fun, and opportunities for positive child development. They make sure each box is just right before it is sent out.  

REVIEW

I received a Little Fun Club box for review that contained the following three books.  I found the three books to be good choices for the three children I asked them to choose for: a 9-year-old, a 4-year-old, and a 10-month old.  Although, I did find it a bit odd that the book for the 9-year-old is the third book in a trilogy, an interesting series, but I had to get my hands on the first two books in order for it to make any sense.  In terms of cost it's a good deal at $25 or $27 dollars since at regular prices the books would be $33. The three books are as follows:


The little green peas are back for a romp through a rainbow of colors in this Classic Board Book by New York Times bestselling author, Keith Baker!

The little green peas are back to celebrate the colorful world around them. Join the fun as they fly red kites, sail blue boats, ski down purple mountains, and more! Bright and bold illustrations fill the pages of this delightful exploration of color.

THOUGHTS:  I am a fan of these Little Green Pea books.  My favorite thing to do is look at all the tiny little details.  It's also fun to follow the pattern and show the child the recurring phrase, "little green peas'.  There are some fun surprises along the way as well, baby green peas, and little green guys (aliens).  This is a nice choices for my almost one-year-old niece.


A little bunny keeps running away from his mother in an imaginative and imaginary game of verbal hide-and-seek; children will be profoundly comforted by this lovingly steadfast mother who finds her child every time.

THOUGHTS:  This book is considered a classic, and yet I've never read the whole thing before.  But it's not hard to see why it's a classic with the comforting mother and the determined youngster.  The little bunny threatens to run away, but his mother keeps reassuring him that she will always come after him.  The alternating black and white scenes mixed with the colored, wordless two page spreads makes for a powerful combination.  Another good choice, this time for my almost 5-year-old nephew.


In Act III of Newbery Medalist Cynthia Voigt’s Mister Max trilogy, the solutioneer sets off to rescue his missing parents!
Ever since Max’s parents were spirited away on a mysterious ship, he has longed to find them.
He’s solved case after case for other people in his business as “solutioneer.” And he’s puzzled out the coded messages sent by his father. He doesn’t know exactly what’s happened, but he knows his parents are in danger—and it’s up to Max to save them.
Max and his friends (and a few old foes) don disguises and set sail on a rescue mission. It will take all of Max’s cleverness and daring to outmaneuver the villains that lie in wait: power-hungry aristocrats, snake-handling assassins, and bombardier pastry chefs.

And behind the scenes, a master solutioneer is pulling all the strings.... Has Max finally met his match?

THOUGHTS: I didn't actually get this one read because I wanted to read the first two books first.  I thought it a bit odd that they sent the third book in a trilogy, but its a good choice despite that.  I think my 9-year-old nephew will enjoy it when I give it to him along with the first two books.
