Why aren't more parents talking about this box?? My kids love the books that were picked for them and are ASKING to "go on an adventure with the reading bug" via the podcast. Love this box.
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 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 :)
My son loved all of his new books. He especially loved the book about Jim Henson. My son loves making videos and I liked how they selected this book. We also loved the fact that the person who put his box together grew up in our town.
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.
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?
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!
Great reading box for my 4 year old. She loves every book that she has received. Everything we listed that she was interested in they sent! Best reading box!!
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.
My daughter receive her first box today and she LOVED everything in the box. The books are great quality and are new! She loved this more then the jojo box! :)
I couldn't be more thrilled with this subscription box. Every book has been a winner in our house and is enjoyed by my daughter AND the parents who get to read them along with her. We both look forward to it every month and can't wait for the next delivery. They always include sweet personal notes and little fun something extra (colored pencils, little notebooks, stickers, and more) that make it extra special. This month we got a beautiful version of the Secret Garden, an adorable dinosaur book, and a finger trails bug book great for her age as she is learning to write. They are always fun and original choices. I really can't say enough good things about this subscription box.
Fun and magical box. Keep up all the great work!
We've tried a few book (and other) subscriptions, but this is really the best. Each box is packed with love and great books.
We're all HUGE fans of the Reading Bug podcast. We learned about Reading Bug Box there and decided to give it a try! So far the boxes have been amazing, with each book extremely well matched to the details I gave them about my daughter when we signed up. The value of all the books and other items is worth the price, but it's even more valuable because the books are ones she is actually excited to read. She even got a personal note from Lauren - who is on the podcast - which really made her day! Such a great company and a wonderful, personalized service.
Purchased as a gift for my nieces. The girls loved their book boxes and each book choice was geared for their age and different interests. The boxes were gifts for the summer and they both read every single book. Thank you!
