We joined the Story Box last year and have been super pleased with the service. My daughter is thrilled when her books arrive each month. The parent guide is a great tool for parents looking to assist their child in his/her reading journey. It is also great because it isn't electronic and provides a very natural and intimate time enjoying your child and him/her enjoying you! I encourage everyone to give The Story Box a shot! You will be pleased. Lastly, you basically get two books for the price of one at a traditional bookstore! Everyone loves a great DEAL!!!
