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: Do the boxes consist of well know classics and new authors?Asked by Lisa C., November 2020
Our board book box (suggested for ages 0-3) and picture book box (suggested for ages 3-6) consist of "hidden gems"—amazing books that you likely don't already have on your shelf. These can be by new, established, or famous authors and illustrators.
Our chapter book box (suggested for ages 7-10) consists of one hidden gem and one classic title.
You can see examples of past titles included in each box by visiting our site—Bookroo—and clicking on "Kids Book Clubs" at the top of the page.
Q: I accidentally put the wrong name on the shipment. Can I get that fixed before it ships?Asked by Amanda H., August 2020
Absolutely! Just send an email to support[at]bookroo[dot]com by Thursday evening :)
Q: Do you keep the books in each box as part of the subscription or do you have to purchase each one individually after existing each box?Asked by Shane V., July 2020
You get to keep all the books that come in the box. :)
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 😊
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.
I subscribed to several book subscriptions for my 3 and 5 year old boys. We opted for the picture books. We received two hard back books. It's a Wonderful World based on the song with lovely illustrations by Tim Hopgood and Somewhere Else which was a very engaging book about a bird who doesn't know how to fly. This last book was a gem of a book, it had enough text and storyline to be complex and more interesting to read repeatedly at bedtime then most other children's books. I would have liked another book with more to read than song lyrics even if it did have pretty pictures which is the reason I gave four instead of five stars. I am excited to see what next month brings, hopefully more like the Gus Gordon book.
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. :)
My grandson loves his monthly box. I am stopping the subscription due to a financial hardship.
Perfect gift for the baby with everything!
The customer service is top notch! So looking forward to sharing this subscription with my grandson. Thank you for a great first impression!!
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!!!
