I love that my kids share my love of reading. I love getting lost in a book. I love the feeling of not being able to wait until the next time I can read a few more pages (I love a good thriller). Every night, from the time the boys were born, we read to them. And now my oldest, Max, is reading to us. It warms my heart when his younger brother sits and listens to his older brother read him a story!
I discovered Bookroo when searching for subscription book services for my boys. When schools and libraries closed last year, I was looking for a way to make learning fun and give the boys (and me!) something to look forward to each month. Bookroo offers a 1, 3, 6 and 12 month personal and gift subscriptions with the following options:
- Board books (ages 0-3), 3 individually wrapped books included per box
- Picture books (ages 2-6), 2 individually wrapped, hard cover books included per box
- Chapter book s(ages 7-10), 2 individually wrapped books per box
Each month the books arrive beautifully wrapped and kids have a blast opening them!
Not only do I love Bookroo for my kids, but it’s a great gift idea. It’s literally the gift that keeps on giving. The American Academy of Pediatricians has said “reading regularly with young children stimulates optimal patterns of brain development, strengthens parent-child relationships at a critical time in child development, which, in turn, builds language, literacy and social-emotional skills that last a lifetime. In a year that’s been very different than what we’re use to, and includes a lot of quarantining, anything to help with social-emotional skills, in my opinion, is a win/win.
Bookroo is an awesome idea for a last minute gift as well. Kid party and no time to shop? You can gift someone a subscription! Friend out of town having a birthday? No problem – email them a gift subscription. I’ve never heard anyone say “we just have too many books!”
If you happen to get a book you already have, no problem. Bookroo just asks that you send them a picture of you giving the book to someone else and they’ll give you $5 off your next subscription. You can take a peak at past boxes HERE.
If you’re interested, Bookroo was nice enough to give my readers 15% off subscriptions – use code THANKSANGELA at checkout! Let me know what you get in the comments below!
