Back to School Style with a Mermaid Flip Sequin Backpack from Justice
Mermaid Flip Sequin Backpack – From under the sea to up above the waves, this backpack keeps essentials secure with the sparkling and splashy flair of fun flip sequins in a mesmerizing mermaid scale design. Plenty of pockets keep her organized while a fluffy pompom charm adds even more fun.
As you might know, backpacks are a huge part of back to school style. Being a huge Justice fan, my daughter was so excited to see a Justice backpack in this box and of course the fact that is had mermaid flip sequins put it over the top awesome. A few things we noticed about this backpack: It’s well made! With sturdy construction and a top loop that can support up to 100 pounds! (what! what!?? It’s true!) I love that it has padded straps cushion her shoulders to keep her comfortable even when carrying heavy loads, even though I 100% know she won’t be carrying 100 pounds, lol! She loved that it has a special loop that’s made to hold her keychain collection to help her to customize her style.

Children’s Book: Merci Suarez Changes Gears
I’m all about starting the school year off with a great read, and this book looks to be a good one! Reading is always stylish if you ask me, so I definitely include books in the planning out back to school style each year. After all, you are what you read, right!?
Using humor and grace, Merci, a charming and plucky protagonist, cycles through life’s challenges with the support of her intergenerational family. This richly nuanced novel tackles the complexity of navigating a multicultural identity amidst changing family dynamics.
Merci Suarez knew that sixth grade would be different, but she had no idea just how different. For starters, Merci has never been like the other kids at her private school in Florida, because she and her older brother, Roli, are scholarship students. They don’t have a big house or a fancy boat, and they have to do extra community service to make up for their free tuition. So when bossy Edna Santos sets her sights on the new boy who happens to be Merci’s school- assigned Sunshine Buddy, Merci becomes the target of Edna’s jealousy. Things aren’t going well at home, either: Merci’s grandfather and most trusted ally, Lolo, has been acting strangely lately — forgetting important things, falling from his bike, and getting angry over nothing. No one in her family will tell Merci what’s going on, so she’s left to her own worries, while also feeling all on her own at school. In a coming-of-age tale full of humor and wisdom, award-winning author Meg Medina gets to the heart of the confusion and constant change that defines middle school — and the steadfast connection that defines family.
Wow!! The Winner of the 2019 Newbery Medal, awarded annually to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children, this book focuses on family relationships in a close-knit multigenerational Latinx family, especially between Merci and her grandfather, who is increasingly affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
This book is an age appropriate story for middle-schoolers featuring a modern story with complex and realistic characters and situations and I love that it’s a reelatable story about how friend and family dynamics change over time.
Even better, it includes accurate and natural use of Spanish words throughout. Both of my kids are taking spanish, so this is an added bonus and another reason that I love reading so much. Books help to bring us so much knowledge and exposure to the world and cultures around us. This one looks to have a great storyline as well!

We are all about reading, so seeing this book including in the Babble Boxx was an added bonus!
And there you go! Quite a selection of fun products for back to school, right? Remember, back to school doesn’t have to be stressful, in fact, it can be fun.. especially when you find YOUR back to school style!
