This Spring Season, my children and I have been having a lot of fun with the Storybook Gift Sets from Silver Dolphin Books. This series has taken classic children’s tales and Bible stories and created a fun hands-on approach geared toward children ages 5 and up. These sets provide kids an interactive 3-d fold open model with characters and props to reenact all their favorite parts of each story again and again. But not just that, also included in the set is a 32-page hardcover book too!
These sets we were sent to enjoy and spread the word about are Noah’s Ark, Beauty and the Beast, and All Aboard the Pirate Ship! My children first got to check out the Noah’s Ark gift set around Easter time. My six-year-old son loved helping me put the set together. The parts weren’t hard for to figure out. He’s pretty good at being careful and punching pieces out. He’s got a lot of practice in the puzzle world and in helping his dad punch out game pieces. The cardboard pieces aren’t flimsy. This set with care can last with much play. The storybook features the same illustrations as those on the character animal and people pieces that go with the Ark. The same can be said for the other sets too.
All the sets are very colorful and the stories included are great takes on well-loved classic tales and stories. I feel the sets at $19.99 each are a really good deal. These are great for any time of the year but I can’t help but think what a great asset they would be for promoting learning literature and boosting a child’s interest in such during the Summer season. I highly recommend them!
