If you have been following me, you have read my posts about Owl Post Books. This has been my first experience in participating in a book club for my grandchildren. We have thoroughly enjoyed it! The mystery of discovering what new books and crafts are inside are fun for kids and adults alike. So a thought hit me…let’s give other subscription boxes a try to see which one we like best. The idea of sampling book clubs for kids was born and we are ready to embark upon this journey!
As I sample each club, I will update this post to give an honest review…from a Mimi point of view as well as from an Addi & Max point of view. I hope as we try each one you can all decide which one you may want to try. As always, if you have tried one or more out, PLEASE let me know in the comments at the bottom of this post.
Book Clubs for Kids ~
Owl Post Books ~
Let’s start with the box ~ even the box is a fun part of this subscription. Each month is a different theme and the images are very detailed allowing for a fun coloring experience. Look at this month’s cute animal theme…and it is on front and back of the box. Of course, this box can also be used as a fun storage device as well!
There are two options to choose from when starting in this fun club.
- Reader’s Imagination Mini ~ This one features one specially selected book and craft each month for $14.99
- Reader’s Imagination Box ~ This one features 3 specially selected books and one craft each month for $32.99
It also breaks down into different age groups.
- Ages 0-3
- Ages 4-7
- Ages 8-11
Overall, our experience with Owl Post Books has been a very good one. In fact, Addi just recently realized that we did this month’s craft without her and was NOT happy with Mimi. The book choices have been loved by both kids and they have lots of fun coloring the box. We highly recommend this monthly book club.
I have shared some earlier reviews of Owl Post Books here: Read more about the fun we have had with Owl Post Books by clicking here!
They offer 10% off for teachers and you can cancel at any time. Please check their FAQ page for details.
I am placing my first order for Bookroo today. I have been researching this company quite a bit and it gets great reviews. I am very anxious to see the type of books we receive. The reviews all say that the choice of books is phenomenal! Following is what I have read in my research about this fun book club subscription.
They offer options of prepay or month to month. Both options are at a discounted rate of up to 50% off of retail value, however, the prepay offers an even deeper discount. There are 3 options of age groups to choose from.
- Board Book Club ~ Ages 0-3 ~ You receive 3 board books each month. The books typically have 8 – 14 pages.
- Picture Book Club ~ Ages 3-6 ~ You receive 2 hard cover books each month. The books typically have 32-40 pages.
- Chapter Book Club ~ Ages 7-10 ~ You receive 2 chapter books each month. The books typically have 120-280 pages.
They offer a flexible delivery schedule which I personally love. I like to have the books delivered here so the kids have something to look forward to. Since they are not here all the time, I can choose a time for delivery that I know they are typically here. Part of the fun is checking in the mailbox to see if there is something in there for you, right? They also have a cancel at anytime policy, but as always you should check their FAQ page on their website.
Join me in trying this one out with the 15% coupon below…
This one is also on my list as it, too, gets great reviews. Bonus...you also are helping others with each box you receive! Their website states: Pick your box, choose a plan, delight your little one and give back! How cool is that??? For each box shipped, a book donation to a child in need is given! You and your child are helping others while still enjoying great books!
Kids Reveal Box ~
Another one that looks great and allows you to help others! Their website states: Choose your box, choose your plan, excite the kids and give back. This club also includes an interactive box that the books are shipped in. We definitely have added this one to the “must try” list.
Amazon Prime Book Box ~
Of course, we have to add Amazon Prime because I just love everything prime! They have so many different options that it would be impossible to list them all. Here are a few of my favorites:
I have only touched the tip of the iceberg with my list of options. As we continue to hear about more subscription boxes for kids, I will be sure to update this post. I think the grandkids and I are going to have a lot of fun sampling book clubs for kids!
