FEATURED BOOK: Bloom – A Story of Fashion Designer Elsa Schiaparelli

Little Fun Club Bloom
If you don’t know Elsa Schiaparelli, Bloom is the perfect way to discover her. Elsa was a fashion designer who defied the idea of the day (1920’s) that women’s fashion had to be plain and unassuming. As you turn the pages you realize just how her bold and playful imagination translated into bold and playful fashion statements!

It is not often that the book design lends so much to story within. Julie Morstad has designed and illustrated a book that celebrates Elsa’s style with her signature pink, ornate flowers, and a hand-stenciling technique that dates back to the earlier twentieth century! Kyo Maclear tells you Elsa’s story following her from childhood into adulthood. It is so important for young girls and boys to witness her journey from self-doubt into creative success! Elsa changed the face of women’s fashion as she dared to be different and that is an enduring message that stands the test of time!

THEMES: biography, self-esteem, fashion
AGES: 6-8

One thing we have realized is that our Children’s Book Subscription Service is an answer to a couple of questions on that list. Continue reading

Summer Reading for Kids – Make books a part of childhood memories

Thinking about summer days as a kid brings lots of sweet memories to our minds. Days were long and lazy. The time outside of school walls was much celebrated! Some of us left the din of the city behind and spent free afternoons building sandcastles, chasing butterflies at our grandparents homes, or camped under the stars. We also remember meeting some of the most memorable characters between the pages of our summer reading. These books remain, to this day, the most excellent memories of childhood. As we think on those days, we are trying to pack our monthly subscription boxes with characters and stories that will effortlessly become equally memorable for our kids.
