Zoobean, who kindly sent me this package to review, is a monthly subscription service which helps you build your individual child’s literacy with remarkable children’s books and apps selected just for him or her.  You may select from a monthly book delivery service (from $9.99/month) that gives you one hardcover or paperback book each month, along with an app recommendation + literacy guides or a digital service option (from $2.99/month) and receive weekly personalized app + book recommendations that come with literacy guides.

I also received one for L for August which you can check out here.

The Envelope

Zoobean ships via UPS Mail Innovations.  The books always come in a padded white envelope with the Zoobean logo on it.  I haven’t figured out how to open these without scissors yet.  They are super thick!

The Book

August 2014 Zoobean - 2 Year-Old Boy
Quick as a Cricket

WB’s book pick this month was “Quick as a Cricket” by Audrey Wood (which is selling for $12.39 on Amazon right now). It’s a great book and WB loved the creatures in it, but didn’t quite get the message.  He will in a few years though!

The App

Peekaboo Barn

WB’s app selection this month was “Peekaboo Barn”. It’s $1.99 (the cost of the app is not included in the subscription price) and while I hate to pay for apps (there are just so many great free ones), I will probably make an exception for this. WB loves animals and loves naming them all, making animal sounds, etc. I am telling you though, the all time best app for kids WB’s age is “Endless Alphabet”. It’s $6.99 (OMG), but boy does he love it. It’s getting to the point where he sees the word and can say it before they do. He’s addicted.

The Zoobean plan I received is $16.95, which includes the monthly hardcover book + the digital reading guide + the app selection and app companion.  If you are interested in just the Digital Service, it’s $2.99/month and you will receive a weekly email that includes an expert created Reading Guide or App Companion along with a book or app recommendation.  And then you can pick up the book at the bookstore or borrowing it from your local library!

    Both of my kids (3 and 1) love peekaboo barn. I got it when it was free and I say it is worth the money. Also they love endless alphabet too!

    I am considering this for my 2.5 yr old, are the apps for on a smart phone or can they be used on the computer? I am confused & the website wasn’t very clear. Thank you for your help!

      Apps for a Smart Phone. I think you can use some apps on a mac maybe but I am not sure?
