My five-year-old daughter and I really enjoyed this box! She loves reading and play dough, and this was a great combination of literacy, sensory and pretend play for her. I love that I have not heard of the book before. We love to read and have a substantial library of children’s books at home, so I enjoy being introduced to new books rather than just seeing some of the classics. We are looking forward to next month’s box!
