Q: If I get the box for 2, as I have an almost 6 year old and a 1 year old, would they still get that extra gift or just 3-4 books?Asked by Stephanie P., February 2021

Reading Bug Box answered...February 2021

Hi Stephanie! The box for 2 will contain 5-6 books total and extras for each child. Sometimes there is a book to share or for the older child to read to the younger child if applicable.
Note- our focus is on great books and our mini-magazine with a few activities.
And we often include bookmarks, stickers or other small items just to enhance your reading experience! This coming month for example, is a seed paper packet to plant in the ground. Last month included outerspace stickers and a space bookmark. :)

Josie is THRILLED with her Reading boxes! She read the first box of books three times! This box arrived the day before her 6th Birthday! She yelled with Joy at four new “chapter” books! I am very happy with my purchase!

Our boys LOVE the books selected for them! One of the best curated subscription boxes we have tried. The books are age appropriate for the two boys (4 and 7), including early reader books. The subjects are SPOT on to what our boys love, and there are always a few little extras that really make this box special. We have been enjoying this with our library closed and have absolutely loved it! Highly recommended, you won’t be disappointed!

I am a 12 year old and got this box because of quarantine. I just wanted to say, that even though I am older, this box was AWESOME! I have read so many books that I was nervous I would get titles I have already read, but I didn't! All of these books look really good and also books I have never seen before. They were my level of reading, and were all in perfect condition and looked brand new! I would highly recommend this subscription box, even if your child is older :)

Love this subscription

The mom of the baby I gift these books every month said it was the best gift they received for their shower. Nice selection of books, and it's getting the baby familiar with books and reading. I've been sending them to him for a year; he's only 15 months now but he does look at them. He's not able to sit still for much reading yet, but he will be :)
