The love of reading continues as we sampled yet another book club, Jambo. Let me tell you that this book club for kids did NOT disappoint. We received two high quality books that we thoroughly enjoyed, and we are very excited to add them to our bookshelf! Read on for more great information on the sampling of book clubs for kids – round 3!
Jambo Book Club ~
Jambo Books offers you the opportunity to add fun multicultural children’s books to your home library. I believe many of us get stuck in the rut of buying books that match our own personal culture. This subscription sends you two beautifully illustrated books each month that helps teach children that all people are equal even though we all look different.
Books Included In Our Subscription ~
When Grandma Gives You A Lemon Tree ~
This delightful story teaches kids that sometimes the most unexpected gifts bring the most joy. A birthday list is made, however, Grandma brings a gift that is NOT on the list! “What? Didn’t she know what I wanted? My list was everything electronic….not a lemon tree!” We soon realize that this is a gift that keeps on giving in so many ways!
Bob, Not Bob!
When children are sick, they just want their mom (or dad) for comfort more than anything else. However, when your voice gets congested, calling for mom can sound like so many other things. This book is fun to read with all the funny antics that arise when your voice doesn’t sound quite like itself!
Both of our stories depicted children of color in everyday situations. What a great way to help children realize that while they may have physical differences, their every day activities are the same.

After sampling several book clubs for kids, I definitely see some positives right away. Listed below are some of the details I loved about Jambo Book Club.
- Jambo book club offers a nice variety of age groups. Many book clubs only offer about three.
- Mixed age group option is available. I have not yet see this awesome option available in our earlier samplings. Many families have more than one child, so this allows you to choose two different age groups in one mailing!
- Books don’t focus on historical or cultural facts, but instead represent everyday life of all children around the world.
- Each month’s books come in a beautifully illustrated box that can be reused by the children.
- It’s a great way to foster the love of all cultures.
- The books are very high quality!
I write often about the excitement of children receiving mail. While our world has evolved to a highly “electronic” world, some things never change. There is still a rush of excitement when children find something in the mailbox addressed to them. This is such a fantastic way to help children put down the electronic devices and dive into simpler times of snail mail and books!
Sampling Book Clubs for Kids – Round 3
There are many wonderful benefits to each book club as you can see from my earlier writings. Sampling Book Clubs for Kids and Sampling Book Clubs for Kids – Round 2 were two of my earlier posts. As you read each one, you see that club has different styles. I have mentioned before that one club may be perfect for one while another works better for someone else. Some include crafts while others offer a better variety of books. I highly suggest you read my earlier posts to see some of the differences.
With that being said, I will say that Jambo books has been our favorite to date. The many benefits listed above really resonated with me. It helped us find books that we have not read before and the quality of the books exceeds the cost of buying the books outright.
I hope you will check out Jambo website here….Jambo Book Club! They offer more than just a book club subscription on their website. You will find a tab with author showcase, a blog and other high quality products such as colorful puzzles and different book bundles.
I would love to hear your thoughts….let’s talk!
