The Story Box is a phenomenal concept that allows your family (or classroom, therapy toolbox, or library) to increase not only their quantity of books but also the quality of books. Anyone can buy books off of Amazon or go to a2nd & Charles and buy them in person. What makes The Story Box different is that they are hand selected from a nationally certified and licensed speech-language pathologist and then sent to your door every month. The efficiency of the ordering process and low (to no) maintenance upkeep of the service is outstanding. The owners seem to be very dedicated and enthusiastic about their business and handle customer service issues or questions promptly and professionally. The Story Box subscription is a great way to increase not only your library but to also increase your child's, student's, or family members' language skills, vocabulary, and reading abilities. Each story comes with a Parent Guide which helps the adult explore different ways to expand on the story's details, vocabulary, deeper meanings, real world relevance, and overall tone. I would highly recommend The Story Box subscription to all parents and grandparents with young children, early elementary teachers, SLPs and all educators of young children.
