bookroo box

We love books at our house and one of the highlights of every month is the day that our bookroo box arrives! We have subscribed to bookroo since last summer and every single box has had a great selection.

They have a couple different subscription options for reading levels. We still get the board books, but I think soon we will start getting the picture book box also and let our toddler open those.

Each box comes with three beautifully wrapped books. It definitely makes it more exciting to open, but I kind of wish there was less waste per box. The box also comes with a little card that summarizes the books included with a short description. A couple times we’ve gotten books that we already had, but I’ve just gifted those to friends.

In terms of pricing, it comes out to a little more than you would pay to order the books online or buy in store yourself for the books and shipping but I think it’s worth it for a couple reasons. First of all the excitement of the bookroo box in the mail just adds to our daughters’ love of books and reading and secondly, the books are typically ones that I’ve never heard of and would probably never stumble across on my own, so it expands our library.

Do you subscribe to any monthly boxes? Which ones do you recommend?
