Hello bookish friends! How many of you have heard of OwlCrate out there? You may know that it is a monthly subscription box filled with all sorts of bookish goodies! What you may not know, is that OwlCrate has expanded their line to include Middle Grade readers! Please welcome, OwlCrate Jr.
This box is carefully curated for kids of all genders, ages 8-12! Honestly though, if you're a big kid at heart, you're going to love this. I'm a perfect example of this!
Each box contains a Middle Grade friendly book that is published within 45 days of the ship date, which means you'll always receive a new release! If that wasn't enough of a reason to get your hands on this box, each OwlCrate Jr. also contains 3-5 goodies that are expertly selected for the monthly theme, with at least one usable activity and one item directly related to the story. In other words, magic. MAGIC.
March's OwlCrate Theme was Unlikely Friends.
Without further ado, here's the unboxing!
Let me say, I'm a 32 year old woman and when I opened this I literally squealed with delight. I can only imagine what a young reader's reaction would be! So many goodies!
A Harry Potter 100 piece puzzle was the first thing that caught my eye. The picture on this is absolutely adorable!
Next up was a Toothless magnetic bookmark from Beedoo's Etsy shop! He's so darn cute. Plus each crate comes with a collectible button that matches that month's theme. Dragon and Unicorn are definitely unlikely friends, but look how happy they are!
Finally, a set of unlikely animal friends stickers (can we PLEASE gush over the bunny and turtle?), and a vintage skipping rope! Did I take that out and play with it as soon as I finished taking these pictures? Yes, yes I did.
The book in the Unlikely Friends box was Hello, Universe by Erin Entrada Kelly. This is the story of four children who, with a little help from the universe, end up as friends. Featuring luck, smarts, bravery, and a guinea pig, this book is sure to enchant your young reader!
