Two things we love at our house are 1. We love supporting LDS Business’s and 2. We love reading to our kids and think it is so important. So when we came across Bookroo we had to try it out!
And we are so glad we did! Our kids were so excited to get their books delivered right to our door and then…even better, the books came wrapped! So the kids got to unwrap their books. I don’t think we’ve ever seen them so excited to read! And we were amazed at the quality of these books. They were hard cover, had bright fun pictures, and were the perfect length for our kids
What is Bookroo?
Bookroo is a new book subscription service for young children. Each month, they deliver a handful of books that come as a gift. No joke, your kids are going to love getting their books every month.
They offer two subscriptions: Board books for smaller children aged 0-3 (3 books) and picture books for young readers aged 2-6 (2 books).
The mission of Bookroo “is to enable and empower parents to build their children’s book collections in an affordable and exciting way through curated monthly book deliveries. [They] believe in the power and impact of the written word in the life of a child, and believe it’s never too early to start reading to children!”
Who Selects the Books?
Bookroo is a family-founded and oriented company. They were started by three LDS sisters-in-laws who not only share a LOVE of reading. They are passionate about building libraries and helping others foster children’s love of reading.
Bookroo looks for hidden gems to send in their boxes, rather than the classics you may already know about or can easily discover. Their books are extensively reviewed by a panel of 12 families attending Stanford University and their combined 22 kids. They rate each book on a 7 point scale and on its re-readability. Books that emerge as clear winners are sent out in Bookroo boxes.
How it works
So the cool thing about Bookroo is that it is a subscription service that provides high-quality books each month. You don’t ever fall into the trap of not remembering to read to your kids because your kids will be constantly wanting to read the newest books as they receive them.
So you get the books delivered to you each month. As you can tell from below, our kids love getting and opening up their books.
What Comes Inside A Box?
As we mentioned earlier, you either have picture books that are great for ages 2-6 (2 books) or you can get board books for children who are ages 0-2 (3 books). The books above are just some examples of the great titles they have.
Reading to our kids
We couldn’t recommend Bookroo more highly. Amazing idea, helps our children stay engaged and keeps their excitement for reading growing stronger and stronger each month and the quality of the books are top notch!
They even have a special for our LDS SMILE readers. They are offering 20% off their subscription price for either the 1 or 3 month plan. If you want to check out the special just click the deal below.
