Last week we got Adrian’s fourth Literati box (see boxes one, two, three, and four). The artwork, as usual, is beautiful. Can’t wait to find out what book holds the reason why they used that particular art this month.
This month there was a folder labeled Kids Pack. That’s where the poster, bookmark, and bookplates were. I like that folder. It kept the things neater for shipping (the return label and price sheet and what not were in the bottom under the books).
Look at that fun picture and bookplate images! As always the bookmark is absolutely beautiful. The winter pictures make me want to just cuddle up under a blanket and read all day (even though temperatures here in south Texas have definitely not been cuddled up under a blanket weather).
This month there was a bonus gift. Even though snow is not likely (we’re gonna just pretend last February never happened), Adrian can build his very own (paper) snowman this year.
So the books. This month brought us five selections that all sound fabulous. Black Brother, Black Brother by Jewell Park Rhodes explores the racism and challenges related to colorism when one brother is dark-skinned while the other is light-skinned. Dry by Neal and Jarrod Shusterman looks at what happens to friends and neighbors when a drought causes the taps to run dry. Let Me Hear a Rhyme by Tiffany D. Jackson wonders if it’s possible to bring a friend back from the dead, at least through his music. Influence by Sara Shepard and Lilia Buckingham reveals what life is really like for those in the spotlight where not all is as it seems. 1789: Twelve Authors Explore a Year of Rebellion, Revolution, and Change looks at one year in the life of our country (sure to be a hit with my Hamilton-loving son).
December’s selections sound fabulous don’t they? They made the decision to click keep all 5 super easy. I can’t wait to dive into them myself!
