One Mam and her Squad: Baby Book Club Review by Stacey

IMG_2503I am a big reader myself so I really want to pass this onto my little boy. I’ve read to him since he was first born, although the first few months involved him sleeping and me reading aloud!

Now that he’s paying more of an interest I am keen to read to him as many different books as possible. I purchased the usual ones that most people have and any that I loved from my childhood, which I love reading to him. But I am always looking for new titles.

I saw the Baby Book Club on Facebook and it looked like such a good idea. Different books every month.

I was so excited when the box arrived in the post, it looked lovely. I wasn’t disappointed IMG_2504when I opened it, the books were individually wrapped and beautifully presented. And the theme was one of my favourites…Wishes and Dreams.

The three books were appealing, just from their front covers. Which, let’s be honest, is what most attracts me to books. I hadn’t heard of any of them before which got a big thumbs up from me. This is what I wanted from the book club. FullSizeRender

My little boy is 6 months old and I have read them all to him. The bright colours and pictures captured his interest, maybe a bit too much as he tried to eat one of them! I loved the stories and have now read them to him a few times. My favourite had to be Wishes for You, what a lovely book it is.

I would highly recommend the Baby Book Club for anyone who loves to read to their little ones. It’s such a great concept. Every month is a different theme so you will never get the same kind of books. And as your little ones get older they will be as excited as you to receive their monthly box.

Baby Book Club

Baby book club is pretty much as awesome as it sounds!

A monthly subscription service from which you receive three hand chosen books a month for you and your baby to enjoy.
Seeing as Bunny (as most of you will know) is a hardcore book worm, reviewing March’s box was an opportunity I couldn’t refuse!

Everything was beautifully packaged, the box itself demonstrating that we weren’t going to be disappointed. The book’s were wrapped in tissue paper and bubble wrap with a little notecard welcoming us and explaining this month’s theme.
Bunny loves getting involved in opening … well anything… and this was no different.

March’s theme was Under the Sea and the books were fantastically colourful- something that instantly draws me to a book.
Bunny enjoyed exploring the books independently to begin with before she prompted me to join her and for us to read them together!
The books have since been read repeatedly (especially the ‘flip flap’ board book) and as the two picture books were suitable for a varied age range, the Wildcat was able to sit and enjoy story time too.

I absolutely love this idea as it’s not always easy to know what books to choose for your little one. I’m pretty savvy after working in a Nursery for a number of years but if you’re not up on your children’s stories it’s a pure minefield!!
The other thing I have to mention is the thought that has gone into the boxes, from the smallest details through to the theme and the products themselves.
You can immediately tell the care that has gone into choosing the books and piecing everything together. This is a top quality product which at £30 for a three month subscription is an absolute bargain.
There is even the option to give a subscription as a gift! How fantastic is that!!

Within this service there are so many little tips, quotes and ideas that also appear, you can’t not be enthusiastic about encouraging your little one to get stuck into a world of stories and discovering their imagination.

Checking out the website http://babybookclub.co.uk/ and the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/BabyBookClubUK/ is a must.
