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.

My girls are always super excited to get their box. They really appreciate the little gifts they get also. The little personal messages with their names are a nice touch. The books they pick are great topics. Lately though they’ve been a little harder and longer and they’ve been a little intimidated by the thickness of the books.

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!!!

I’m updating my review after receiving the box. The quality of the products are amazing the books are adorable however, the shipping time is still a really bad let down. That time to take to get here it was a really long time.

*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!
