Q: Can I delay the first shipment? So that it comes after Christmas? Asked by Tara K., November 2019
You sure can! If you've already purchased but your box hasn't shipped yet, you'll need to email into Bookroo's support email to have them help you set that up. If you're ordering a gift subscription, you can change the date you want the recipient to be notified on the checkout page.
Q: can I get a subscription for every other monthAsked by Roberta B., December 2019
Just email customer service. They are usually really good at accomodating requests.
Q: What reading level are the picture books? My granddaughter is learing to read and would like for her to be able to read most of them herself to increase her reading skills.Asked by Brenda C., November 2019
Hi Brenda! Our picture books are geared for ages 3-6. Depending on your granddaughter's reading level, the box should be a good mix of confidence boosting and slightly challenging as we include one book with lighter text density and another book with slightly more text. You can check our website to see some of the past books we've sent, too!
Q: Are the books for boys or girls, or can I specify which I want?Asked by Brenda C., November 2019
We have our books reviewed by a panel including both boy and girl children and only choose to send books that are universally enjoyed by both genders. While some books have girl main characters and others have boy main characters we hope that they can be enjoyed by children of both genders, :) The same books go to all of our subscribers, so unfortunately we're unable to customize to specific children.
The customer service is top notch! So looking forward to sharing this subscription with my grandson. Thank you for a great first impression!!
I bought this subscription for my granddaughter and I'm very impressed. This picture is of how it was presented. Each book Individually wrapped. The selection of books were awesome. This is such a great way to start a library. I would highly recommend this to anyone. I'm looking forward to the next shipment 😊
What do you get a grandchild for her birthday that she'll look forward to receiving every month and enjoy every day? A Bookroo book club membership. It's the gift that keeps on giving. The quality and curation is top-notch. 5 star all the way!!!
I chose the 12 month subscription because I thought this was a great idea for a crate, plus my 8 year old loves reading. The idea is wonderful, as we received our first bookroo crate I saw how excited my daughter was to unwrap and see her new books (they are beautifully wrapped). I know the books go through a screening process but as a parent I need to do my own screening. I had to glance through the books before allowing my little one to finally get to read them. Unfortunately I found words like "stupid" and "idiot" each in both books.
Customer service was quick to send a replacement but for only 1 book which I still do appreciate as it was a nice book without curse words.
I tried giving it another chance but after our 3rd crate realized these selection of books are NOT for my family.
We're sorry our chapter book box wasn't a great fit for your family. Sending excellent quality books is something that's important for us, but we know each family's standards are different. We screen our chapter books for profanity, violence, and mature content, but we do allow books with magic and words like "stupid."
We apologize that you only received one replacement book--you definitely should have received two! I've sent you an email, but we're resending another box with a second replacement book for you in our next shipment this week.
The Bookroo Crew
Beautiful little box with individually wrapped books inside. They were wrapped in holiday paper and just as cute as pie! Super fun to open. The books themselves are hardback and the choices were perfect for my 4 year old. Can't wait for next month!
Thank you, Whitney! We are so glad you enjoyed the Bookroo experience of unwrapping the books and that you loved the book choice. We can't wait to send you more books!
I love this book subscription! The send the sweetest books that I typically would never find or think to look for. I can’t wait to continue to receive them for months to come!
I got this gift for my niece and it really is the gift that just keeps on giving. Her parents read to her and it's so awesome that I am able to give them one more book to enjoy together.
I am so excited about these books! Bookroo takes the guesswork out of which books to get for my toddler. The packaging is also super cute. I’m excited to share these stories with my son!
I like it but I can’t Afford it
I received my first box about two weeks ago and let me say, I’m not disappointed. I got this subscription for my niece. I bought her her first bookcase and plan to fill it up myself with books. I love the unique little stories that you’re given. I love that they’re each wrapped as presents. Wonderful subscription
