[Alaska Crate, Jan 2018] I am so excited for this. My family has been watching a lot of those shows about people living in Alaska lately so this will tie in perfectly.
[Alaska Crate, Jan 2018] Hi Emily, we just got our crate today and I was thrilled that you included a mini curriculum booklet. I am so excited to read these books to my girls. Thank you for putting such a thoughtful collection together.
You’ve done it once again! These crates are just fantastic for our homeschool! Thank you for all you do.
We are loving our May crate. We are taking our time and enjoying the family books so much. I read the parent book “Lily and The Octopus” much too fast but was hanging on very word. Probably never would have heard of let alone read these books without this cool crate!!
Grab those April crates! The Thirteenth Tale is now my 15yo daughter’s favorite book ever, taking the place of a Stephen King novel she loves. Very high praise from both of us for these crates! We are trying hard to get caught up. We are four crates behind in purchasing, and just about to start reading May. We don’t want to miss one! I just started a new job, so hopefully we will be able to afford these necessary-to-us “extras” soon! ❤️
Our family has LOVED your crates, themes and shared love of books!!! Thank you for creating the family crates! We too, stopped only because the books were piling up. School and life got busy and we could not keep up! But we would be interested in the future!!!!!!
