I subscribed to several book subscriptions for my 3 and 5 year old boys. We opted for the picture books. We received two hard back books. It's a Wonderful World based on the song with lovely illustrations by Tim Hopgood and Somewhere Else which was a very engaging book about a bird who doesn't know how to fly. This last book was a gem of a book, it had enough text and storyline to be complex and more interesting to read repeatedly at bedtime then most other children's books. I would have liked another book with more to read than song lyrics even if it did have pretty pictures which is the reason I gave four instead of five stars. I am excited to see what next month brings, hopefully more like the Gus Gordon book.
We got the picture book subscription and neither of the books (Crunch, Nipper and the Lunchbox) that came were very interesting or engaging for my 3 and 5 year old sons. I might of checked them out from the library because the covers and illustrations were nice but I never would have bought either book to put on my shelf to read again and again. We subscribed to several book crates and this was one of the ones we ended up canceling because we liked another much better.
EDITED TO ADD: I was promptly contacted by staff after my honest review and offered two new books to try from their subscription service. They were very gracious and wanted me to be satisfied with my purchase. I am awaiting the new books and will update my review when they arrive. Thank Elephant Books for caring about your customer.
