Yes! There's a wide variety of options for all ages, and Cratejoy Marketplace isn't the best at showcasing them. You can look at readingbugbox[dot]com for more.

The books were all something my daughter loves and did vary in value but I do feel the box was worth the stated value and liked the extras. Shipping was a bit slower than expected, but now understanding the box really is custom, I am perfectly happy with the shipping time. I would order this again, but would love bimonthly and quarterly options.

This is the only kids book subscription you need to try. I’ve tried several for my kids, and was not impressed. But this box is far above the rest! These are not leftover books, or clearance books, or cringeworthy twaddle. These are quality books that are enjoyable even for adults to read aloud. My kids have loved every book they’ve received, and the best part is that it’s curated for my child. I also love that I’m supporting an independent bookstore. I’m telling you, this box is worth every penny, and it’s really a good price for what you receive.

I was charged but didn't receive my second box. There is no where to call and inquire and no where to sign in to check on my order. Is it me?

Initially I really like these box. I tried it out for about 6 months. My 3yo daughter loved receiving this box. Here is my experience: I only ever received 3 books along with some other small gift (stickers, buttons, paper hat). Out of the 3 books, one of the books was usually unreadable (story line went no where, way to complex or to simple like a baby book). I never knew children's books could be so bad till I started this box subscription. I feel like for $33 I am paying over $10 per book which is way more than it would cost to purchase them directly. I am trying out another box subscription for $19 that includes 3 books.

Hi Samantha, I'm so glad your daughter loved receiving her Reading Bug Boxes, but sorry, of course, that you didn't enjoy some of the books. One of the key benefits of our service is that the books are hand-picked from our store shelves just for you, not general selections for everyone. Our team thought you'd enjoy the books we included, but if there's ever an issue, I encourage you to let us know so we can make sure we continue to grow along with you and your child! Additionally, the value of the books we include always exceeds the price of the box. Thank you and I hope we'll see you back again in the future!

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 :)

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!

I ordered a three month subscription for my daughter's birthday in the beginning of June. After reading that they shipped boxes normally around the 15th of the month, I emailed to see if earlier shipping was possible. Lauren emailed me back the same day and got the box mailed the next day. My daughter really enjoyed the books chosen for her. The personal touch and excellent customer service of Reading Bug are one-of-a-kind!

We just received our first box. My son was so excited for his first reading box! In the ordering survey, I mentioned that my son loves LEGOs, and sure enough, they included a cartoon LEGO book. He immediately went for that book! The other 2 books are ones I never would’ve gotten (particularly the chapter book), but only minutes later, my son is sitting in his comfy chair reading through his first chapter book. So these guys clearly know what they’re doing! He wants to read the other book before bedtime and even loves his bookmark and stickers. Great job!! Can’t wait for the next box.
