We had the pleasure of receiving Lit League’s Clara Lee and the Apple Pie Dream sibling box in exchange for an honest review.
What Is Lit League?
Its a multi-themed book subscription that was developed by three mothers who wanted to create enriching experiences and activities through books for their young kids. Now, they share it with you.
The boxes can be selected for different range of ages and used in multiple ways. You can use it for your own personal family book study or you can create your very own bookclub with friends.
They offer three lines of subscription boxes: ages 3-9 with a high interest picture book, ages 5-9 with early chapter book (we were gifted this one), or ages 8-12 (chapter book).
My particular book box was packed with writing activities, discussions questions (with answers), crafts, and three recipes. The discussion questions are put together by English teachers. I appreciated the questions and most importantly the very helpful answer key.
A colorful instruction pamphlet is also included that gives you background information about the Author and Illustrator of the book, tips on how to run your own successful book club (optional), a description of the activities and how they relate to the book, and additional reading selections.
If you choose to expand into a book club, you can add additional activity kits to your box for each friend for an extra cost; $10 for materials. The books can be either purchased at a bookstore or borrowed from your local library.
The costs vary depending on which type of book box you get and the length of the subscription. It can start at $36.00 for a single box or $30.99/month for 12 months. It really depends on your family. Its best to head over to the website for a detailed overview.
Although this is not something I would use in our home on a regular basis, it does provide quality writing prompts, comprehension questions, and family projects (cooking recipes/art) as it is meant to connect us to the story. This particular book, I would have thought not to pick for my daughter, but she surprisingly enjoyed it and now it gives me new ideas on what other books I can introduce her to. That’s a win!
This might be a good fit for families who needs a little change in their daily learning schedules and/or are looking for already curated books with activities. Honestly, more so for families who value convenience over price.
