Q: Does anyone know if people with Asian heritage are represented in the books, too? South Asian? Chinese? Japanese? Korean? Thank youAsked by Rachel M., June 2020

Hi Rachel. Yes, we do include books featuring children of East Asian and South Asian backgrounds. For example, this month, Meenal Patel's Priya Dreams of Marigolds and Masala is going out to our 5-6 year old members. Priya is Indian-American. Jasmine Toguchi, Mochi Queen by Debbi Michiko Florence is going out to our 7-9 year old members. Jasmine is Japanese-American.

Q: My niece is 9 years old. Is this for the appropriate age?Asked by Jussara S., October 2020

Jambo Book Club answered...October 2020

Jambo, Jussara! Thank you for your question. The 7-9 year old selections are usually one picture book and two chapter books that are about 100-150 pages long with limited illustrations. If your niece wants more challenging books, I would suggest going to the 10-13 subscription. If she'd like to receive only picture books, a 5-6 year old subscription would be a better fit. I hope this helps. If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to post it here or email us at info [at] jambobooks [dot] com.

Q: Do the child keep the books, or do we have to return the books? I'm looking to build my grand girls a library of books they can keep and pass down to one anotherAsked by Lavonne N., February 2020

Hi Lavonne. Yes, the children keep the books. We love to help families build quality libraries that reflect the beauty of their world.

I have given Jambo boxes as presents and just recently received our first box. Everything about the box was perfect-the book selection, the letter, and the JambArt on the box!

Jambo Books should be a part of everyone’s home library. This is how we begin to lay the foundation for a better, and more just future.

Congratulations to the team at Jambo Books for knocking it out of the park!

Highly recommend - expertly curated, it’s like hitting the easy button for great literature for our little one. The books have become fast favourites, and we have loved the content - great illustrations, stories and messaging for kids.

I got a Jambo subscription for my now 2-year-old nephew when he was an infant. It was a great way to build his library with stories that engage his curiosity and are age-appropriate. Several of the Jambo books have become favorites, the tried-and-true old faithfuls that he drags out every night. It's also been a fun way to build our long-distance relationship since he gets reminded every month that his aunt sent him a gift! My cousin is having a baby this month and I've gotten her baby a Jambo subscription too. It's my favorite way to welcome littles into the world.

Everything from the customized letter to the child, to the beautiful packaging, and to the thoughtfully curated selections so very much emphasized the love and care that the Jambo Team puts into every brilliant package. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I ordered a theee month subscription as a birthday gift. The books came in beautifully decorated boxes - with fun party streamers inside!- and a personalized note with a little background about the books. The books were beautiful and unique, and they opened the door to many meaningful conversations. We will definitely subscribe again!

We loved out first shipment of books. They are perfect for honoring the anniversary of Apollo 13 and our daughter loves the astronaut themed book. My family really enjoyed the art in the books and they were great stories to read aloud.
