I received a book for each of my boys, ages 3 and 6.  Each book came in its own cardboard box.  As a special note, each book had each son’s name on it, so I knew which box was belonged to who.


First Look.  Each book was wrapped in purple tissue paper and there was a welcome note on top.

3 Year Old Book


The Kissing Hand Audrey Penn $10.99 on Amazon This is such the perfect book for my 3 year old.  Chester the Racoon is scared to go to school so his mom teaching him the Kissing Hand to reassure him.

Summary from Amazon “School is starting in the forest, but Chester Raccoon does not want to go. To help ease Chester’s fears, Mrs. Raccoon shares a family secret called the Kissing Hand to give him the reassurance of her love any time his world feels a little scary. Since its first publication in 1993, this heartwarming book has become a children’s classic that has touched the lives of millions of children and their parents, especially at times of separation, whether starting school, entering daycare, or going to camp. It is widely used by kindergarten teachers on the first day of school. Stickers at the back will help children and their parents keep their Kissing Hand alive.”


Here is a look inside the book.

6 Year Old Book

Wish Upon a Dream

Wish Upon a Dream Margaret Wise Brown $9.58  I love Marget Wise Brown, she is the famous author of Goodnight Moon.  This book is about the magical land you go to when you dream.

Summary from Amazon: “Dreaming child, what you shall see, Deep in sleep might someday be. Explore a magical bedtime world of favorite dreamswhat will you wish upon tonight? From the hidden treasures of Margaret Wise Brown, author of the childrens classics Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny.”

The illustrations are simply stunning.


Each book also came with a two sided bookmark.


Final Thought: Story Surprise is such an incredible subscription for children.  At $6.99/month, even Amazon couldn’t sell a book cheaper.  My boys loved their books!  This subscription is affordable and subscribing will get your child a new book each month.  Even if you get a book you already have, the subscription is cheap enough, you can donate or gift the book.  As if this subscription couldn’t get better, Story Surprise is giving every subscriber 3 Free Months.  That’s 3 free books with NO COST.  Use this link with the code subboxmom3 to get 3 months completely free.  Note: you must use the  link provided for the deal to work.  You will be signed up for a subscription.
