Q: What’s the best choice for a girl who can independently read chapter books (Ramona and the like) but is only five years old? Asked by Nancy M., October 2020

Reading Bug Box answered...October 2020

Hello! Because our boxes are 100% personalized, you can add this information to the "notes" section in your child's profile. Our expert booksellers will choose content appropriate for age 5 but will cater to the reading level you mention (which for Ramona is about 2nd-3rd grade level reading...fantastic!). Be sure to tell us the age is she is right now and her birth month so we can age up the content as she grows.

I absolutely loved this book box for my two boys! They each got their own copy of the little extras instead of having one they had to share which is huge with little ones! My 7 year old was reading as soon as the books were in his hands! Marvelous!!!

*EDIT- Customer service is wonderful! They solved the issue right away!*

Ok first of all; WE LOVE THE FIRST BOX! It’s perfect and so personalized! Thank you!

Now to the URGENT MATTER: (I am writing a review in hopes that this gets seen as soon as possible!)

On my account, it says that my “box for 2” has been delivered! It was actually the “box for 1” that arrived today. On the account it says the box for 1 is still being prepared.

Please confirm that this is just a simple error, and that the “box for 2” is still being prepared and will arrive.

Thank you!

I got the reading bug box for two readers. My daughters are age 9 and 6 and they loved their box! And the treat that came with it. I think they are still a little too young for how many chapter books came with it though. I would like maybe one chapter book next time and the rest preferably picture books or stories I could read aloud to them. They love the chapter books but I feel like one is enough because it takes them a while to get through it and then they don’t want to ever read it again. What my kids like to do is read the same picture book over and over again and even take it in the car to read. Again, the chapter books you picked were great- but I’d like just one per box. And it was my fault for not clarifying earlier. We would really love more illustrations and fantasy/magical picture books. Thank you Reading Bug!

I love Reading Bug Box! We have tons of books at home - our son is obsessed with books - but Reading Bug sends us books I've never heard of and they're always wonderful. The curator makes a real effort to understand what the child is interested in before picking the books and our son has been delighted by every new book. I could not recommend Reading Bug more highly!

Great even for older kids!

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 :)

Great selection for both kids!

Our personalized box was usually spot on!! The added surprises in each boxes were fun,too! The only reason we stopped the subscription was because we couldn't keep up with reading all our new books!
