Good afternoon my book loving friends! Today I want to share a hidden gem of a pre-teen subscription book box with you.
Rooted Book Box is a Christian worldview subscription book box aimed at preteen readers.With Rooted Book Box you can get the subscription or order just the monthly boxes you choose.
What’s In A Box
- Main Book
- We will also include some discussion questions for you and your Rooted Reader!
- 2nd BookThis will be a devotional book or possibly a journal to encourage writing. At times we will be able to include a second fiction book. These items will relate back to the theme of the Box that month.
- BookmarkEvery book needs a bookmark. These will fit the theme of the main book or box as a whole.
As a Christian mom & reader I think this book box is amazing. For the month of September I got Brave Ollie Possum By Ethan Nicolle – a gorgeous 384 page hardcover, Anxious For Nothing – a beautiful, 240 page paperback, a possum bookmark and questions to start a conversation about the book. I appreciate the diversity of the book selection. I love that each month there is a devotional book – help your pre-teen explore their Faith. I’m also a huge fantasy fiction lover so I personally find the main book phenomenal. You can get all of this delivered to your door at an affordable price. I personally look forward to getting my book subscription each month, I know that pre-teens will be just as thrilled.
September’s Book Picks
Brave Ollie Possum
By Ethan Nicolle
Middle Grade Fiction
Ollie must learn to be brave or end up a bowl of soup.
Ollie Mackerelli is determined to face his fear of the dark once and for all, but he gets more than he bargained for when his therapist turns out to be an actual monster. To make it even worse, Ollie is transformed from a boy to a possum and locked in a cage.
With no way to call for help, Ollie must learn to be brave (with the help of some furry friends) or he will be the main course.
Adventurous, imaginative, and fantastically illustrated, Brave Ollie Possum is the debut children’s story from author and screenwriter Ethan Nicolle.
