The gift of reading to your children

As you all know I am an avid reader and have been since I was young.  My mother use to read to me when I was an infant and because of that I am so grateful.  I am now grown with two children of my own and I want to make sure they enjoy and love reading as much as I do.  Well two weeks ago Jane Tanner Co-Founder of BookRoo emailed me about her company.  BookRoo is a subscription box service (who doesn't love that?  Getting a gift in the mail every month?) that is for children and they send books for them!!

How does it work?  First you choose if you want to receive board books (for the younger children) or picture books.  Then you are able to choose the type of subscription: one month, 3 months, six months.  Then you receive your books in the mail!!  It is so simple.

We decided to get a subscription and give it a try ourselves so we could give you our honest opinion on bookroo and how it works.

I ordered the one month subscription, and I choose to receive picture books since my children are a little older (ages 4 and 9).  When you pick the picture book subscription you receive two books, and if you choose the board books you receive three books.  I received my books a week after I put the order in which was very quick, Boxes normally arrive in the middle of the month it says on their website.

Here is our box, it had a cute little message written on the box, and inside the books were wrapped like presents!

My daughter opening the first book

The first book was:
I can be anything by Jerry Spinelli 

I can be anything by Jerry Spinelli and illustrated by Jimmy Liao.
This picture was under the dust jacket, and on the actual book.  I thought it was so neat!

Our second picture book:
Bedtime for Monsters by Ed Vere


Our two books.  The kids loved them both, the pictures were colorful, and the books were high quality hardcover books.  


Here is a picture of a board book subscription with the three board books. (not my personal picture)

Overall I was very impressed with this company, the communication between Jane Tanner was amazing and I am so grateful for the opportunity to even hear about this subscription box service.   I love reading, and passing that love of reading on to my kids is a must.  If I can help other families do the same by spreading the word about bookroo then I am glad!  This would be a great gift for your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, neighbors and so on. 

I was able to get a link for the readers of my blog (that means you!) it will give you four dollars off your subscription to Bookroo so you can give it out a try yourself with a discount
