Christmas is three weeks away and it’s crunch time for presents. While I’m sure you’ve been buried with toy and electronic requests, there are options if you don’t want to have a ton of toys around. Giving books are a great way to get a educational and fun gift.
My son recently started kindergarten and has begun learning how to read and form sentences so he’s burying himself in as many books as he can, which is why I’m so happy that Bookroo exists. Bookroo is a subscription book for kids that sends new books every month that are designed for their reading level. There are three options: board books for ages 0-2, picture books for ages 2-6 and the junior box, which is currently in beta mode and you can get here, that sends early chapter books for ages 7-10. The junior box is a great option for kids like me who would devour books faster than we could get to the bookstore to get more.
All of the books sent by Bookroo are reviewed to make sure they are age appropriate and an interesting story for the kids to follow. They come wrapped up in fun wrapping paper so it’s an exciting surprise for your kids every month while they get to see the latest book to read. If you are a nightly reader to your kids then you know that you can go through the whole book rotation very quickly and you start to memorize that stories without even opening the book. This gives you more options and exposure to books you may not have seen otherwise. It also helps grow your library monthly so whether you get a three month or a 12 month subscription, you will have more books to read and to help foster your child’s love of reading.
You can find out all the information you need about Bookroo here. This gift is the perfect way to help your child’s vocal development and a great way to bond with story time. So skip the fights over the most popular toy and get a gift that will last long past the batteries on the latest electronic out. I’ve received a few boxes from them and the books are always great stories that my kids loved to read over and over again.
