Bookroo Review

My daughter loves having a book read to her at night before going to bed.  With that being said, her selections became repitious and stories would sound the same. How many princess fairytale stories are there? Believe me, there are so many.

So with this in mind, I decided that in this box subscription booming business, there should be one for children books. Alas, Bookroo!! Their vision and my daughter’s excitement for receiving mail or packages are in alignment.

Every month, Bookroo sends you and your child two books for their reading pleasure. In the past two months we have received:

Squid and Octopus Friends for Always by tao nyeu

“A friend for always is someone who… knows how to cheer you up when you’re feeling droopy, usually sees things your way, and never lets a quarrel get out of hand.” 

The Bear Who Shared by Catherine Rayner

A story about a bear that learned to be patient and share with those he did not think he would be friends with. 

Harry and Horsie by Katie Van Camp

This story is my daughter’s new favorite. It takes a child through an imaginative journey that all starts with a bubble. 

Dream Away by Julia Durango and Katie Belle

“Dream away, dream away, sleepyhead, love. Set sail for the ocean of stars up above. You be the captain and I’ll be your mate. We’ll journey together, the heavens await.”

We look forward to receiving many more literature to fill my mini me’s library.

If you are interested in Bookroo for yourself or a friend, they are offering a discount on your first order! Your gift will last forever!

    Hi Kat,

    I only heard of Bookroo through your blog. Now, I’m interested. How old is your daughter? Do you get to choose the books that comes with the monthly subscription or is it surprise content? I always get my twins’ books from Amazon. I recently got them books related to getting them ready for the arrival of their baby brother and I wrote about it here: Great finding you at The Bloggy Mom Network! 🙂

      Hi, it’s a good subscription. There are two options based on your preference. I choose picture books for my 5 year old. They are more geared towards sharing, caring, and vocabulary development. She has been able to read one solely but then will need help with a few words which is good. The other option is for children 0-3. I hope they increase their selections because my daughter will be out of the age category soon. Lol
