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
Love all the choices. I would love to get a chapter book for Simone so that we can get involved in a long story - appropriate for her age of course
Different books sent then I would have picked out for my 9 year old. He's enjoyed reading new things and I loved having it shipped directly to my house versus searching online forever or going to the store. It's easy. If the next box is as good, we will continue throughout the school year.
I LOVED this book! I love the adventure and magic. It was funny and entertaining and kept me guessing! I can't wait to read the second one!
My daughter loved her books! Very well done and can't wait for the second box!
We were tired of reading the same books to our daughter over and over again, and this is a great solution. We don't have to worry about searching for great books or remember to buy more books; they are sent right to our door! Awesome! They did a pretty good job at sending books my daughter would enjoy. She loved "Uni the Unicorn".
My soon-to-be 5 year old godchild loved her first sampling....she had enjoyed all 4 books in just over a day. There was nice variety in the choices. Only 3 stars for the shipping, but it may be the fault of the usps. The package was delayed In two places and took a week to travel a relatively short distance. .....could be the pandemic slowing everything down.
We are so happy to hear your goddaughter enjoyed the books! We’re looking forward to picking out some equally great selections next month. As for shipping, we ship via media mail which is cheaper but a bit slower. And it does seem that the current situation has caused our shipments to take an extra day or two to arrive. Thank you for your patience and for supporting Kid Curated Books.
We got our first box of books yesterday and read them all! I really disliked one of the four books, which is why I gave a lower rating for the curation. However, the other three books were great so we are looking forward to our next box!
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 are absolutely loving our subscription to, Kid Curated Books. At the beginning I told them that my son loves animals and what age range I needed the books. Each box has been spot on.
We look forward to our new books each month. The way they are wrapped up and packaged is also done very well.
My daughter wanted books for Christmas. She also loves subscription boxes. When I saw this, I thought it would be perfect! She loved the packaging when she opened it on Christmas and she has never read any of the books chosen. They’re a little longer than the ones she’s been used to reading, but hopefully she’ll enjoy them! I’m even considering getting a subscription for my 12 yr old son.
So glad to hear your daughter liked her Christmas gift. Let us know if she likes the length of the selections or if she'd prefer some shorter stories next time. And we'd love to curate a box for your son in the future. Thanks again!
