Q: Why does it say subscription plans start at $18 but then when you go to subscribe it says $40?Asked by Justine C., August 2021

beTWEEN the Bookends answered...August 2021

Hi Justine,
Thank you for your question! There are different subscription types with different price points. In this case, that price reflects our "Just the Books" box. Please feel free to reach out directly with any further questions.

Q: My daughter is turning 7 and is struggling in reading. Are these all chapter books? Or does the early readers box have picture books? She's making improvements but isn't ready for chapter books yetAsked by Brittany W., June 2021

beTWEEN the Bookends answered...June 2021

Hi Brittany,
Thanks for the question! Currently the books you'd find in our Early Reader box are easy to read chapter books such as Ivy and Bean, Heidi Heckelbeck, and books of that nature. They're shorter chapter books and generally have illustrations throughout. We currently do not offer a picture book option, but plan to offer one in the future! Please feel free to reach out directly at any time if I can answer any further questions.

I ordered the 3 month subscription as a birthday gift for my soon to be 9 year old goddaughter. She got her first box today and called me right away to tell me how much she loves everything in it! All the extra goodies in addition to the books makes this an amazing value!

I purchased this subscription for my Granddaughter that lives far from me. She has received two boxes so far and loved each one, and the best part is that she thinks of me whenever she gets one.

Great Gift

This is a very high value box for a Tween. I gave my daughter a subscription because she was reading through the school and local library novels faster than they can buy new ones. She loves the items, and they make great small gifts to friends, and the books are going to make a great addition to the school library to share the love.

My 9 year old has a hard time finding appropriate books that match her interest but also her reading level. This box solves that problem! I love that I can feel comfortable letting her read these solo without me reviewing too much or reading with her. Also love that there are usually 2 books in a box, which is a great value, but also guarantees she will love at least one book so the box doesn’t end up feeling like a waste if one isn’t a hit. They also pick some awesome goodies and we’ve discovered some fun new places to shop small through the products! Jillian is very in tune with the tween audience and does a fantastic job with these boxes!

Love it!

One of the absolute best gift ideas for young readers or for those who want to encourage the love of reading. These boxes have delightful lifestyle items and fun themes every month, with mini boxes and single purchase options as well. There’s something for everyone and the box builders clearly put a lot of time and effort into creating the whole effect! Love it and totally recommend!

Presented as a gift to my 11-year-old niece, the beTWEEN the Bookends monthly subscription has proven its success. There is a regular arrival of positive feedback soon after delivery, and hearing her excitement about a number of the contents has provided not only satisfaction with accomplishing the purchase of a decent gift, but also joy that my niece knows her uncle loves her. Discussing the contents of each delivery has become quite the conversation starter as well. Thanks!

Excellent box for older girls too

It feels so great to support such a wonderful business. All the items were good quality and so fun! A great box for even older girls. We will be trying the mini box and book only box too in months where we want less. What a great idea! Customer service is fast and top notch.
