Bookroo is a monthly children’s book subscription curated, wrapped, and delivered for the child in your life. Nurture a love a reading by giving a gift of board books, picture books, or junior books for that 7-10 year old.
I first featured Bookroo just over two years ago and I am still just as thrilled with this company as I was then! I wholeheartedly believe this makes the perfect Christmas gift for the children in your life. Do you have a baby or toddler on your gift list? Then check out the Board Book Subscription. For your preschool – lower elementary-aged readers, check out the awesome Picture Book Subscription. New since I last checked them out, they now offer a Junior Book Subscription for those middle-grade readers.
What do I love about this company? First of all, it was started by three sisters-in-law who shared a love of reading and a passion for reading to children. Secondly, the subscription arrives every month as a gift for your child. Each book is wrapped as a present and what kid doesn’t love opening a present?
The books are high-quality picture books and usually ones I have never heard of before. Even with shipping, you are getting two books cheaper than if you went to a book store plus they are gift-wrapped and delivered right to the child saving you time (which to me is the most valuable piece).
The two books included in this shipment were delightful: a bedtime story and a silly story guaranteed to get your kid to laugh.
I am a sucker for a good bedtime story and this one is just beautiful. A mother is ready to tuck her daughter into bed by going through their nightly ritual of telling everything in her room good night. It uses a soothing rhyming theme with gorgeous, muted watercolor illustrations. As the little girl climbs onto her mother’s lap for her bedtime story, the magic happens and the little girl imagines she is in a swing bed being lulled to sleep by her mother’s reading. It would have been the kind of book I would have gotten to read to our kids at bedtime.

Bobby has a birthday coming up and he doesn’t want the typical gift. He wants a pet shark for his birthday. So he creates a plan. Step 1: Convince Parents, Step 2: Get shark. What follows is a perfect plan that comes together…maybe not exactly how Bobby imagined it. It’s full of silly antics sure to get your child giggling. The illustrations are top-notch and will keep you from turning the pages too fast because your child will want to look it all over. What a great book for a birthday boy or any child that loves the aquarium…or getting back at their older siblings.
