There’s something about subscription boxes that gets moms all giddy. Getting a gift in the mail (without even setting foot in the store) makes any day feel like your birthday—even if you paid for it!
But look past the usual makeup, snacks, clothes, and wine subscriptions (we see you, mama!), and consider this cool news: Amazon now offers a Prime Book Box that delivers hand-chosen children’s books every one, two, or three months!
According to the Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLF), 65 percent of fourth-graders in the U.S. do not read at a proficient level. And studies reveal that when a child reads more frequently for fun, they have a better chance of becoming a strong reader.
Best of all, the Prime Book Box titles are 40 percent off list price, so you won’t break the bank.
As with many subscription services, you tell the company a bit about your preferences, decide on the frequency, and they choose books for you. Then, you either preview and choose your options or let the box be a surprise.
You can skip an order or change or cancel your subscription anytime you’d like.
Why not give it a shot? After all, your kids can never have too many books!
