Some of my favorite gifts to receive as a child for Christmas were books. As an adult that has translated to my being the aunt that you can always count on to gift a book and a cozy pair of socks for every birthday and Christmas (I promise all of my kids and nieces/nephew love it!).
Prime Book Box
Prime Book Box is a fun subscription program (exclusively for Prime members) and is great for readers and future book lovers alike that range in age from baby to 12 years old.
The subscription box service delivers curated, hardcover children’s books every 1, 2, or 3 months With each box containing delightful children’s books that will inspire a love of reading in your child.
Why we love it
For busy families like ours, I absolutely love the convenience of having the books sent to us. If we try to go to the bookstore, we end up spending hours there as the kids sort through trying to decide what they want. Now we are able to cut out the extra trip, and the kids are excited to get surprise books in the mail.
This means for my ten year old son, he is able to try out different genres of books to peak his interest. For my four and five year olds, they get to enjoy classics (including some of my favorites from when I was a kid), as a well as new books!
(Kitten’s First Full Moon was a special surprise for us, as it was the first book my now 14 year old learned to read on her own!)
What they receive
One of the hardest things for us is finding a new book to read every day with our kids. Especially our kindergartener who loves books and has been through all of the ones we have at home.
Whether you think that your child’s bookshelf isn’t as full as you would like or if you just want to increase your already existing collection, Prime Book Box is a great way to easily get an editor-curated collection of new releases and old classics into your bedtime story rotation.
With Prime Book Box parents are able to save up to 40% off a book’s list price, as each box is $19.99 and contains four or two books, depending on the age range selected. If you pick a box for baby, it’ll come with four board books. Boxes for older kids who range in age from 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12 contain two books per box.
The more they read, the better off they’ll be
We all know there
- Lead by example: Children learn from example. Kids who have parents who read are more than likely to enjoy reading themselves.
- Be consistent: In our home, nightly bedtime stories didn’t always happen. Once we wanted to make it sort of a tradition, that’s when it became one. A few minutes every night will make a world of difference in the end.
