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!

Loved the box but it was always late

We ordered this for our grandson the books were good but the first box was delayed and took a long time to get delivered. The last two also took awhile to arrive after we received an email saying your box has shipped.
We paid for one more let’s hope he gets it since we canceled.

Hello Christine,
Thank you for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed the box. I have emailed you directly because our boxes always take 5-10 days to get to customers depending on where they are in the USA and we provide tracking for the packages. If you had problems beyond that, we certainly want to know about them so we can address with our carrier. During the holiday months, boxes occasionally take longer to arrive, but we always get them there in time for the holidays (and even birthdays upon request) even if it means reshipping if there is a postal problem. We pride ourselves on great customer service and hope you had a great experience with the books we provided. Thank you!

Overpriced.

I ordered a 3 month subscription of the Baby Bug Box for my 18 month old. The books are cute and my daughter enjoyed them, but I would have saved about $6 per month if I had just bought the books on Amazon. I’ve subscribed to quite a few subscription boxes and this by far has the worst value.
