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: I was wondering if we could request books for our boxes, our family does not do witches, Wizards Easter ,Santa Claus ,Halloween or Disney characters is there a way to avoid getting books like that?Asked by Catherine M., February 2021
Hi Catherine—thanks for your question! We don't send books with Disney characters in any of our boxes, and only rarely send anything with any holiday tendencies, but if you email support [at] bookroo [dot] com after you sign up, we can make a special note on your account regarding this :)
Q: Is shipping free?Asked by Terri E., February 2021
Shipping is $4.99.
Q: I need to change my gift subscription from chapter books back to picture books. How do I do that? Asked by Lena C., February 2021
Hi Lena! Just shoot an email to support [at] bookroo [dot] com and we'll be able to help you with that! :)
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 😊
We love your books my daughter has learning disabilities and baby books are the best she can learn easy with these books I love reading to her thank you so much.
I sent this to my great nephew for Christmas. I ordered him the board books because he is 15 months. My niece said he loved them! The box was shipped out quickly and she said they were beautifully wrapped! Costumer service was amazing as well!
Thank you for gifting Bookroo and for taking the time to tell us your experience! We are so glad to hear that your great nephew loved the box of books.
This was a great bundle for my 7 year old nonverbal ASD boy! He loves picture board books, especially new ones. He loves the books that were picked. Beautiful!
My granddaughter loved getting g books as presents.
My little guy loves this box. The books come wrapped like a present and it makes him so excited to open them.
Thanks Josi! We love hearing that your little one loves receiving his wrapped books. :)
We have been very pleased with our Bookroo boxes! Our area stopped supporting the Imagination Library, and we wanted to make sure our kids continued to get monthly books. We alternate between the board books and picture books each month for our 7 month old and 3 year old and it works great! I make sure I save a book from each shipment so that each month they both get at least one new book. I love that the books we receive are ones I haven't seen in bookstores before. We have received some great gems that we wouldn't have found on our own. I definitely would recommend.
Hi Cassie! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your Bookroo experience with us. We're so glad you've been enjoying your subscription and finding new gems to enjoy as a family!
My 2.5 year old twins haven’t stopped “reading” the board-books from their first box. They love them!
I was hesitant to purchase this box because our other board-book box has one more book for the same price, but 3 books they love is better than 4 books they won’t pick up.
Contacted the seller about poorly written books received. Bookroo even rated them as ‘just ok’ but still decided to send them. From a 6 month subscription, there were 2 that I liked.
Additionally board books come in bad shape, already separating at the seems
Hi Lucas! We have helped many families over the years find books that become treasured favorites, so we're sorry you didn't enjoy all of the books you were sent. Thanks for letting us know. We want to help you discover some books you will love, and we'll also gladly replace the book that had separation at the seams, so we've sent you an email with more information!
We subscribed to the board book subscription for our 2 year old. We loved this and definitely will be keeping the subscription to build our book collection. Our box came with 3 books and each book was individually wrapped in wrapping paper so it's a surprise as we unwrapped each book. Wish there was more then 3. But over all wonderful products and fun to get and open. :)
