My Review:
This is one of my favorite things to review - children's books!  I love seeing the joy on my kids' faces when a book they love arrives, and the excitement as I catch them reading quietly in their rooms instead of playing computer games, electronics or arguing with their siblings.  It makes for a peaceful time for me as Mom, but also I love that they are using their minds and imaginations as they travel to other worlds with the characters in books.

The books come individually wrapped like beautiful gifts

Each of my girls got to choose 
one wrapped book to open and keep
Alli ended up with "Brave Irene" a book she has never read before - so exciting!
 Lydia got "Olivia" - and is super excited
she saw this one in her school library and could not wait to start reading it!

My girls were super excited when they each got to open a new gift and found a fun new book to read!  They really loved getting to unwrap a surprise book.  I love how pretty the wrapping is, how fun it is to receive a new book as a gift, and the joy they each have when getting to read their new books.
