Based upon the first box I received, I would not recommend this box. I am hoping the next orders are better. I purchased a 6 month subscription of this box imagining the curators would select books that would be appropriate for kiddos within the specific age range purchased and who also have various family backgrounds. I do not feel this is the case. The first book in the package was "I love my Grandma" .... this grandma, "is my mom's mother..." this situation does not apply to my daughter.
The other book was about monsters which was scary for a 3 year old. The other book was fine content wise, but had low quality illustrations. I appreciate that we did not receive any cartoon character books, however I feel like these books were selected because they were on clearance and at the bottom of a barrel. Not great stories here.
Thank you for all your happiness you brought my grandson with your books. And thanks for cancelling so
Started this subscription for our older grandson, now 10 years old, about 18 months ago. He has enjoyed all the books and his teachers like them because they challenge his imagination and reading skills by covering topics and situations he normally would not read. His vocabulary noticeably has expanded since he started reading these books. He soon will need the next reading level.
We recently started the series for our 5-year-old grandson. His birthday was too late in the year for him to start kindergarten, so he needs books that will spark his interest in reading. He knows when to expect a new shipment and counts down the days until one arrives. He usually has his parents or older brother help him read one the day he receives it. He sometimes reads excerpts to us via Zoom (we're halfway across the country from where he lives). By the time the next shipment arrives, he can read the previous books all by himself. He hasn't tried to read his brother's subscription books yet, but it's only a matter of time.
The books sent this month still had the Walmart price tags on them showing we are definitely not getting the quality for what we paid. Also very disappointed that the December box did not contain any holiday stories. Seems like there was no thought or effort put in to selecting these books. Will definitely not be recommending or renewing this box.
Stickers on the books are not an indication of where the books were purchased. No stickers are removed or added by us due to the thousands of books processed each month. We believe that our price, the value provided, and service stands up against all other leveled reader book subscription service on the market.
Best crate I have ever subscribed to. It increases our prereaders library of books. We have yet to get a book she doesn't instantly want me to reread. We have received one duplicate book, but other than that everything is perfecto
Fun gift for our granddaughter to have a book subscription for a few months to encourage reading plus receiving a package just for her!
LOVE THIS SERVICE!!! Beautiful books, quality and colorful. Highly recommend for any young reader. Great diversity in topics, people, and representation.
3 books a month. I have selected the youngest reader subscription.
Happy with it so far! 😊
Really good books! The kids loved them. Good quality and came in a timely manner. Will keep the subscription going
OK thank you I had no idea what I was doing but the girls all 3 loved the books aubree would like more for xmas
Thank you so much
Impressive selection of books received. My grandson loves them all. Thank you!
Got a book that's a bit out of his league, but besides that it's a basic book club
This box is great! I have received two boxes so far and my children LOVE the books that they have gotten. There is a couple books in each box and they are based in the correct age range for my kids. I have told friends and family about this box and will continue to recommend it to others.
Great beginner books for my little nephew! His parents are already reading to him at 5mo and they love the variety of books!
I got this subscription for my 1.5 year old son who loves books and likes getting mail. He absolutely enjoyed opening up the package to find 4 new books! They all are in his favorite books to read pile at the moment and I am sure that pile will grow when he receives his next package. It had a nice assortment of books with completely different topics. These will also be great books for him to read on his own once he gets to that stage.
My daughter loves getting her packages every week. She is a pre reader so it gives us a better selection of books to read each month without having to go to a store in these times. It is so wonderful to have this service
