Have you guessed yet that we LOVE books in this house?
I’ve always loved children’s books. There is just something magical about the simple themes and colorful illustrations. Finding new books to share with my son is something that never gets old!
This is one reason I was thrilled to partner up with Bookroo subscription boxes. I opted to get 3 months worth of books for our partnership and I’m so glad I did! We had so much fun getting ‘presents’ every month.
Leopold loved tearing into the individually wrapped board books he pulled out of the boxes. Reading should be fun and exciting for kids, and I think the way Bookroo presents it’s books builds anticipation and excitement!
We chose the board books because Leopold is still in the cross hairs between being able to handle paper back books and ‘paper’ pages appropriately and accidentally ripping them. I’ve always tried to teach him to respect books, so he has never really ripped them on purpose. Mostly because he knows better. We don’t step on books, we don’t bend or rip the pages (anyone else get super annoyed when people dog ear the pages of your books?), etc etc.
I grew up being a huge book nerd. I would get in trouble for reading too much in class, so I ended up taking a class called ‘Reading Power’ where I actually got to read the entire hour. Best class ever. That was the year I finished Gone With the Wind in no time flat.
Since I rarely have time anymore to find books I want to read, never mind actually getting to read them, I turn to children’s books. I love reading to my son and he seems to love it too! I’ve always had the desire to instill a deep love of reading in my children. I really hope that he is an early reader like I was. It’s a beautiful thing to see a small child lost in the pages of a book!
The books we received in our Bookroo boxes were always exciting and never books I’d seen before. Some were a little young for Leopold, but he loved them all the same. I’ll keep them in his room until his sister’s room is done and then we will put them in there for her.
The board book subscription comes with 3 books and the picture book subscription comes with two (another reason I chose the board books…I’m selfish).
So far, the book Leopold responded best to was ‘Animal Homes’ which was probably one of the simplest books we were sent! He wanted me to read it over and over again!
My favorites were ‘All the Awake Animals are Almost Asleep’ and ‘Landmarks’. I love any books that incorporate some learning! I have learned so much from some of Leopold’s books!
I’m pretty sad that our 3 months are up, it was such a fun subscription and they really made it extra special by wrapping each book individually.
If you would like to try Bookroo, use the code LEOPOLD for 10$ off your order!
Here’s a little more info that you can also find on their website:
Board Book package is geared for ages 0-3 and includes 3 books
Picture Book hard cover package is geared for ages 2-6 and includes 2 books
Chapter Book packages is geared for ages 7-10 and includes 2 books
There are different prices for different packages and you can buy them month to month, or for a few months at a time. There are pretty much options for any different need or budget. These would also make a great gift if you’re looking to give something that isn’t flashy and doesn’t include batteries. Or maybe the parents have said ‘no more toys…PLEASE!’ They mean it, I promise 😉
A Bookroo subscription would be a great alternative to a standard or typical gift for any child 10 and under!
