Little Fun Club Unboxing: Three Months of Great Books

Little Fun Club Month 3

This is a sponsored post.

Little Fun Club children's book subscription box service.

This is the last month that my kids (and me, if we’re being perfectly honest) got a Little Fun Club book box. At least, until I cave and end up buying a subscription. My kids have gotten more excited about their box every month and this last box was the best one yet.

See what we got in our first box.

And what we got in our second box.

All three of my kids dove right in and, surprisingly, cooperated to open the package together.

Little Fun Club Month 3Don’t you just love baby hands? My older girls have beautiful hands, too, but those chunky baby fingers…yum!

One of the things I love about Little Fun Club is that they send out a mix of new titles, classic titles, and backlist books. Some book subscription boxes focus more on new releases, which is fine, but there are so many amazing books that were published two, three, or even ten years ago that you’ll only see in a Little Fun Club box.

For example, here’s what we got this month:

Nest board bookNest by Jorey Hurley

Nest was first released as a hardcover picture book in 2014, then the board book edition (which we got in our Little Fun Club box) was released in 2015. It’s a beautiful book with gorgeous illustrations. It features one word per spread and depicts the life cycle of a robin.

My daughter loves board books. She makes a stack of them every night before bedtime, and all of the books we’ve received from Little Fun Club have been integrated into that stack. She even knows them by name.

The thing I love about Nest (besides the beautiful artwork) is that now my toddler is interested in birds. When we’re on a walk, she’ll stop, point at the birds, and say, “Nest!”


Red ButterflyRed Butterfly by A.L. Sonnichsen

Red Butterfly is another beautiful book that was published in 2015. It’s written entirely in verse and it’s a moving story. The format reminds me of Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai.

I’ve noticed poetry and epistolary books becoming more popular in middle-grade novels, so I was happy to see this in our box this month.

The thing I like about this book choice is that it’s only a couple years old, so it’s new enough that we didn’t already have it, yet it could easily get overlooked if you only focus on new releases and classics. And this is a book you don’t want to overlook.



Island of the Blue DolphinsIsland of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell

What can I say? I love this book! I read Island of the Blue Dolphins a dozen times over as a kid and a few times as an adult. I’m absolutely thrilled that now I have my kids have a beautiful hardcover copy to enjoy.

Island of the Blue Dolphins is what I consider a classic. It was first published in 1960, making it the oldest book in our box. It’s about a girl who gets left behind when her island people all leave with some European explorers.

This is a gem of a story and my girls are going to love it. It’s about survival, independence, and growing up.

This was a wonderful choice for our box!


I love that Little Fun Club puts so much thought and consideration into every box they send out. They’ve done a great job of choosing titles that my kids (and I) will enjoy. And like I mentioned before, I LOVE that they include new, backlist, and classic titles.

In the three months that we’ve had our Little Fun Club boxes arrive, I’ve been really impressed with the book choices. My kids have discovered some award-winning titles and amazing books that we might never have had the chance to read otherwise.

How Does it Work?

Little Fun Club Month 3 I

When you sign up, you create a profile for your child. Nothing complex, just their name, age, and gender. There’s also a message box where you can add your child’s interests or anything else (like if your child is an advanced reader) to further customize your box.

The best part is that the subscription grows with your child. You don’t have to update their profile or switch accounts. It’s all done automatically for you.

Every month, your child will receive a box of books addressed to them. The box will contain either two or three books, depending on the plan you choose.

Each book is hand-selected with your child in mind.

This is the easiest, most effortless way that I know of to give your child the gift of owning award-winning books.

A book subscription service like Little Fun Club also makes a wonderful gift. You don’t have to sit in the toy aisle, wondering what on earth your niece, nephew, or grandchild will like. All the decision-making is done for you! This is especially handy when it comes to birthdays and holidays.

    I taught Island of the Blue Dolphins in my homeschool writing class last year and it stood the test of time for me. I hope your kids love it!

      It’s such a good book. I was so happy to see it in our box this month. I didn’t have a copy of it, but I was planning on getting one eventually. Now I don’t have to! 🙂

    Ahh – I’m so glad you all had so much fun with the box of books. And yes, baby hands are the BEST. I just love those little chunks.

    I’m passing on the info for the Club to all my mom friends in the states. I think it’s a WONDERFUL idea.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I am so glad your kids and you have been able to enjoy these books so much lately! It sounds like a really good box and three books is a very good amount for a box. I also love all of the covers and the sound of what they are all about!

      I agree! I think three books is perfect for the box. It’s not so many that you can’t get them all read in a month, but it’s not so few that you finish them too quickly.
