As a mom, I try to find new and interesting things to keep Della occupied. I was browsing Instagram one day and came across the Just Like Me Box. It’s a monthly subscription of books and other gifts for kid. I like the box because it’s filled will books by authors of color and it’s books I would probably never come across in stores, while book shopping.
Della loves the stories and she gets to see pictures of little girls who look like her and her friends. The first book we read was My Caribbean Grandma. D really enjoyed it even though it was longer than the stories we usually reads. After a while she got impatient, but as I started asking questions about the little girl in the book, she calmed down. These aren’t your typical princess books you usually see for girls. The kids in these stories go on wonderful fun filled adventures and really use their imagination. As a parent, I love the promotion of family, friends, forgiveness, imagination, and play. Also, I can use it as part of homeschooling.
Each month, D will receive a box filled with goodies. This is great because she’s always complaining no one sends her any mail and she gets something she loves, BOOKS! Check out the website, using the link below, and see if it’s something your kid may like.
