Bookroo Box Review

I was so thrilled to get this box in the mail from Bookroo, because there are no more prized baby items in our home than Ryland’s collection of board books. I am and have always been an enormous book nerd. As a kid, I devoured books (this was back when there was no Facebook, and we had one family desktop computer the size of a small car, and you had to wait like FIVE MINUTES for the AOL landline internet to connect.)
There are a great deal of things I want for my children, but one of the like top 5 (next to not being a sociopath or joining a cult) is to have a deep and abiding love of books. This is a daunting task in today’s world, because how can a kid possibly focus their attention on a book when there is SO MUCH STIMULUS? Everywhere. All the time.

The only plan I can think of is to just expose them to books as much as possible. Since Ryland was a teeny baby we have done a bedtime routine that includes books. And it is sacred. But as she’s gotten older, the books she likes and will sit still for are always changing. And so I’m always on the look out for new ones to capture her tiny little attention span.

Which is where a company like Bookroo comes into play. Basically it is a monthly subscription service for children’s books. You can either choose the picture book (2 books per box) or board book (3 books per box) option and subscribe for a period of anywhere from 1-12 months. And then the books come right to your front door.

The box itself as well as the inside packaging are the absolute sweetest.

See what I mean!?

Ryland enjoyed opening the packages (with some help), and I’m sure as she gets older this would be even more exciting and fun each month.

The three books we got were all ones I hadn’t ever seen before by new authors, which I love, because let’s face it, Olivia and Angelina and Curious George are fabulous, but every once in a while you need to mix it up a little.

Ryland dove right in.

We read the books together last night at bedtime, and they were all so cute. Ryland’s favorite was unsurprisingly the lift the flap, peekaboo book.

I loved the healthy fruits and veggies in the Farmer’s Market book (even though Ryland would sooner eat a rock than kale).

And I especially loved the beautiful artwork in the Book of Babies.

There are a TON of subscription services out there for kids, but I think book subscriptions are such a wonderful idea. It would also make a fabulous kid’s birthday or Christmas gift (because let’s face it, no parent needs or wants more toys in their homes). You can find out more about Bookroo  here.

As for Ryland’s opinion, well she can’t speak in coherent sentences yet, but I’d say if she could, she would give the service her hearty recommendation.

Isn’t it an awesome gift idea! I think I may never buy anything else for someone with kids again.
