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!."
This is a FANTASTIC box and value. I am so, so impressed at how well these books have been selected for what my girls liked. Really fantastic box!
It was a great assortment of books.
This is an amazing sub box! Good quality books based on the interest of my child.
Wonderful Gift! We love it! Our grandson will be so happy.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
I bought this subscription for my niece and just the time taken to write this little note says it all. Thank you, it made her feel special, like she was being thought of.
This subscription says that it sends books, extras that have to do with the books and are specifically curated to matter child age. While it sends books, they arent books a typical 5 year old would enjoy. For example, we got a book about a girl with one leg. By the end of the book she had no legs and a service dog. The “extras” were a sheet with 5 stickers of dragons. I’m not sure who it was curated by…but the books were level 3 reading level and he is only at level 1 which is good for his age.
I’m annoyed I purchased the 6 months in advance for my nephew. Please don’t waste your money.
Hi there, I’m sorry to hear you are not enjoying our subscription. In this month’s box, we featured stickers from a book called Dragon Masters that is perfect for 7 year olds (I see your reader has just turned 7 according to the info you gave us but it sounds as though maybe the age was incorrect? Let’s fix that! ). We hoped to introduce it here. I’m sure you also received bookmarks last month and other fun items as well as our mini magazine full of activities. These do vary month to month. Next month, for example, we will be featuring a spy pen with invisible ink and activities from The Magic Treehouse series and coloring pages from our free story podcast!...
My nephew and his new family enjoyed the books very much.
Customer service was outstanding even after it was my mistake! 8 year old grandson was super excited to get a box special delivery just for him. The books were perfect.
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!
My granddaughters love getting your books! They are in New York and I am in California so hard for me to really see the quality but looks good on FaceTime ! I did the 3 month trial- how do I extend? Tried to call you but that doesnt work?
Love love love the books!
The grandchildren seem to enjoy them ver much!
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’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.
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!!!
This was our first ever monthly box and my son absolutely loves it!! I am highly impressed with how well they pick out books for him. Both boxes we have received now, have had books in it that were awesome. I would definitely recommend and be a returning customer!
*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.
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!
