Customer Questions (11)


Q: Will there ever be any controversial immoral books such as I about sex?Asked by Dawn H., October 2022

Reading Bug Box answered...October 2022

Hi there, Our Reading Bug Box products are for children, ages baby up to 13 years old. Within those ages, there are generally no books with sexual content. They would not be appropriate for children. Our personalized boxes allow you to choose from a wide variety of genres and our booksellers choose books based on your specific preferences. Examples of our boxes and our bookstore selections can be found on our instagram and facebook pages. If you have further questions, feel free to email us directly at bugbox(at)thereadingbug(dot)com. Thanks!


Q: Hi! We love this product! We are going to renew and want to get the box for two children. Does the box for two at the same address ship in two separate boxes addressed to each child?Asked by Karah I., July 2021

Reading Bug Box answered...July 2021

Hello! Our box for 2 children ships in one box and saves you about 10% over the cost of 2 boxes. Each child gets 2-3 books per box and if they are close in age or share any of the same interests, we will often try to find a book or two that can be shared, read aloud as a family, or passed down to maximize the value for you. Each child will still get there own mini-magazine and extra items (bookmarks, stickers, etc).


Q: Are the book yours to keep every month? Are there any extra charges included? Asked by Jodi N., April 2021

Reading Bug Box answered...April 2021

The books are yours to keep! No returns and no extra fees. Our expert booksellers at our independent bookstore will personalize your box based on the age and interests you provide for a perfect fit each month!


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. :)

Both my kids really enjoyed the books sent for them. My older one loved the greek mythology theme, enjoyed discovering a new character and series, and has devoured everything twice over. My younger son enjoyed the graphic novel the most and is coming around to the wordier books too. Thinking their uncle had sent the books to them, they said: "wow, he did a REALLY good job picking out these books for us!."

Fantastic book selection! Magical!

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!

Amazing for little book worms!

I wish I would give this subscription 10 stars. We received our first box for our 2yr old this month and all 3 books are fantastic! One was such a big hit with her we’ve read it every night, sometimes several times, since we got it. (I love it, too! We’re buying a copy for her daycare to have as well!) The package came undamaged and was fun to unbox and I love that there is a feedback page to send in to further curate your subscription. We LOVE this subscription! Thank you!

Amazing, Always!

I don't know who gets more excited for this box; my son or myself! The books are amazing; and based on a few choices when initially signing up I would think that Reading Bug knows my son personally. They are always books he loves!
I cannot say enough AMAZING things about this subscription box.

Worth it!

My daughter loves her Bug Box! So many new books abs authors to discover. Sometimes they leave handwritten notes on the newsletter which is so personal.

Love their expert curation

Great picks! This is our third box. Only one book seemed less exciting to my son so far (and it was more encyclopedic in nature, so that’s probably why). It’s been great to expand his horizons on different authors as he only wants to read Pokémon and Dog Man books otherwise.
