Subscription boxes are currently all the rage. Whether for books or children, subscription boxes are fun. But rather than having more toys, how about presenting your children with some quiet entertainment, learning and beautiful gift. Book Roo delivers to your home a variety of book selection, based on your monthly or one-time subscription. Book Roo was started by three women, sisters-in-law, that wanted to share their love of reading with other parents in a simple manner that didn’t require overthinking, towing children to a bookstore and is wrapped in an eco-friendly manner that is fun for a child to unwrap.
I love books and have passed on that love to my children. I know that is not always the case and this subscription can get children excited about receiving a book. For the book lover, the anticipation is great too! A book subscription box is a great way to surprise your children on a monthly basis with such ease. It is also a great way to pick books randomly for them and have them venture into new topics or ideas that even you as a parent may not have found. The price for each box subscription is fair, with the lowest 12-month commitment priced at $16.95 plus $5 shipping per box within the U.S. and $11 more in Canada. They have commitments discounts at 3, 6 and 12 months or a month-to-month option. The boxes are available in three different options, age 0-3 with 3 board books, age 2-6 with 2 hardcover picture books and age 7-10 with 2 chapter books. So you are well covered for a few years of reading with your child or children.
My son loved the color and design of the box and noticed the delivery before I did. We received the Birthday book selection with the books, wonderfully wrapped books and a cute note. The colorful donuts and ice cream wrapping really engaged my kids and they both admired the wrapping quite a bit before opening each book. The books received were “Chicken Lily” and “The Best Birthday Present Ever”. These books were great for both their ages, 2 and 5. They came with dust jackets that my daughter removed and admired while my son looked over the pages and they alternated at each reading time. The books are hardcover, which is great because at this age kids can be pretty hard on soft books. The book selection was great, it touches on a celebration all children love and cute animals in each that had them asking for the books every day during nap and bed time reading. The hassle-free subscription and specialized box is worth the buy.
