Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside. Fun and Bright!
Everything that we received in our The Story Box for the month of March. Two very fun books!

So what is all this stuff?

There is a detailed guide for both books included in the box. All important information can be found here including how to appropriate each book for a particular age set. There are also ideas for hands on activities to integrate the book into your life and maybe do a couple fun crafts!
The age set for the books sent span from Baby all the way to Early Elementary. This covers all four of my children!

The illustrations in this book are so fun and whimsical. The images are only a few colors so there is enough contrast to capture babies’ attention but enough interest to captivate an energetic three or four year old as well!
Just a couple of the illustrations in this book. The story is simple and easy to follow. Everyone is going to sleep on the farm… and there are a few silly things included so you can stop and have a giggle. I put Oliver to bed with this book tonight and he loved it!
He still didn’t want to have his pictures taken though!

This story is great for kids of all ages. The story goes a little in depth, which intrigues the older children but it’s also very visual and the images do a great job of telling the story. So you can easily get the interest of your toddler as well
I don’t want to give some of the best images of what happens “outside” away. 
Let’s just say it involves a couple snow creatures!
Penny read this to me… and she really enjoyed the story.
We had tons of fun with both of the books that we received. Reading in our house is one of our favorite past times and subscriptions like this make us oh so happy!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Story Box is an excellent children’s book subscription box! We love the books that we received. The packaging is super fun and definitely enough to pique the interest of a child! The quality is awesome, we love that both books are hardbound and that we’ve gotten a great parent’s guide that is filled with ideas to get children of all ages involved in the wonderful practice of reading! Curation is awesome. Even though both books can be adjusted for all children, we do feel like we received two books that appeal at the base level to particular age groups! All bases covered! This is a great gift idea for any child in your life. Or a great way to build or “pad” your child’s library.
As far as box economy The Story Box is $21.99 a month and for that we received $26 in books – we think this is an awesome deal!
And if you use code FIRSTORDERFIVE you’ll get $5 off your first box!
