Q: I would love to purchase this for my 11 year old avid reader, but worried that he will receive many books he as already read. Is there a way to preview/customize your box before it ships?Asked by Alison W., December 2019
Hi Alison - since our boxes are uniquely customized for each child there is
not a preview option. However, we have not had a problem with subscribers
receiving many duplicate books. This is because you can list a few of the
books your son has read on the questionnaire when you subscribe. We then
select similar new books and lesser known titles. In the rare occasion you
would receive a duplicate, just email us a picture of you donating that
book to a library and we’ll issue you a $5 credit you can apply to your
Q: My mom gifted my kids each a kid curated book box monthly subscription for Christmas. They received their first box on December 24 but we have yet to receive our January box. Who do I contact? Asked by Cullen H., January 2021

Q: How do I change a book subscription to a lower grade level? Asked by Lorrie W., January 2021

Q: I have three kids. 10 month, 4 yrs, 7yrs. Do I need to subscribe three individual times or is there a plan that covers multiple children?Asked by Kenneth E., October 2020
Thanks for your inquiry. There are multiple options. You could subscribe once and ask that the 4 books cover the range of 10 months to 7 years. We would then ship out a board book, one or two picture books, and an early chapter book for your 7-year-old. You could also purchase a subscription for each child or two subscriptions again asking the books be split between the three ages. At Kid Curated Books, we work with you to find the best option for your children.
If you are like me and want to create a passion for love of reading for your child... but aren’t exactly sure where to start
then Kids Curated Books is for you. We have spent much time at the library trying to find books and especially chapter books for my 10 year old. None seemed very appetizing for my son. Due to spending more time at home and not having access to books as we used to, I was at loss in which direction I should go. So we gave Kids Curated Books a try. At first we started reading together, taking turns reading chapters. All of a sudden I saw the child was off on his own wanting to read more than my shared time would allow. This has been a great way to introduce books my child loves reading! An additional plus... they respond to emails and inquiries quickly so excellent customer service! We are on our second month now and super excited to see what will be in store for the future reads!
We just finished our 1 year subscription and still love this box. I would highly recommend!
Let me cut to the chase - we love this book crate. I have ordered several book crates trying to find the perfect one. This fits the bill. It is full of books!!! The other crates we tried came with trinkets which frankly we have no use for. My 11 year old can doesn't need how to train your dragon stickers or anymore keychains!!! Plus, I have 2 boys and the other boxes seemed more geared towards girls.
I do not know how the company that put together these boxes, but they are spot on. You answer some questions about your child's reading level, age, and interests and they send the perfect books. And I can't believe how many they send! My son eagerly awaits each next box and spends hours in between reading, and re-reading, his new books.
I appreciate this company and the outstanding customer service I have always received.
We have been so pleased with this subscription box. Each and every month my son anticipates the arrival of his new books. Each time he gets exactly what he is hoping for. He also loves the notes he receives in each of his boxes. The customer service is very prompt and each exchange has been great. I would highly recommend this to anyone!
Thank you for your review. We've enjoyed working with you to ensure your son receives the perfect selection of books each month. Thanks again!
I ordered this subscription box for my granddaughter for Christmas and she is absolutely loving it! She has been receiving different types of books according to what we filled out initially and has read every one each month. Some turn out to be new favorites and new favorite authors. It is great to have the variety. We have also been able to adapt the subscription box to her likes if there is something she wants to read more of. Great subscription!
Thank you for your review. We are thrilled to hear your granddaughter is enjoying her subscription and being introduced to new authors. Feel free to reach out any time with comments and suggestions so we can continue to tailor our selections to her interests.
We have received two boxes and are anxiously awaiting our next box. My daughter loves to read and this box subscription has just added to her passion and diversified her library. The boxes have had unique and quality picks, no repeats for us (just one book we borrowed from the library and loved). The picks have been spot on given the information I provided. I love that each box has had a book dedicated to a strong female. The shipping is slow but that is the story of USPS and COVID.
So I loved all of the books espesially the Camelot Code. It was really good with humor and adventure and I recomend it to fiction readers.
We loved the books this month! We loved the "Joyful" book. It was perfect for the season as well as the snowman book. The snowman book could not have been more perfect for our daughter who absolutely loves ice cream (that is what the snowman gets at the end!). I also loved the chapter book about the animals who try and cause mischief and end up doing things that were nice. What a nice idea for kids! We have already read the entire book twice. It is nice to have new books to entertain our little one shipped to our house right now. Our books came in a beautiful box with a bow on it which was also perfect to inspire our little one to open it and enjoy it right away!
I have been very impressed with the book choices every month. My goal was to broaden my granddaughters choice of genres and get her to read something other than graphic novels. It’s worked! She is really enjoying the books that are sent and excited to read the new ones.
Books weren't on reading level of my daughter or appealing to her. Without the ability to customize level and genre this curated model is not a good fit for us.
We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with the curation of the boxes. We did receive your feedback that your daughter enjoyed fantasy and included more fantasy selections in the next two boxes. You also noted that your daughter enjoyed Survival Tails because of the dog lead characters so we included two animal-focused books in your last box. If you are willing to give us a try in the future, we would love to continue working to get closer to selections that your daughter enjoys. Thanks for giving us a try and for the feedback.
I never received my order. you charged me for the second month and I never even received the first one. I am upset and canceling my order. it is such a hassle to login as well, it wasn't finding my email..
I'm sorry you are upset. I show you subscribed on February 4. I looked up your tracking information and your box shows it was delivered on February 22. Your subscription is set to renew on the 22nd of every month, and so it renewed on that same day. We will be sending out your second box within a week. If you'd prefer a refund, we're also happy to provide that instead. And we are also available via email if you have any questions about shipping or renewal times. Please let me know if you didn't receive your first box and I'll happily contact USPS about it. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.
