Ding Dong! The sound of a doorbell. It is music to every online shopper’s ears, so long as it isn’t nap time, of course! “What could it be today,” I thought. To my disappointment it was not an Amazon Prime order being fulfilled on my doorstep; it was actually better! There it was: a brown box with a blue logo that read, “Bookroo” sitting on the lonely welcome mat. By lonely, I mean that it hadn’t held a package in a few days, but nevertheless, it was happy to have some company. Then it happened. Liam yelled, “Is it for me, Mommy? Is the package for me?” I replied, “Yes, this is a package for you and Leighton.” Music to every child’s ear! “Yay, can we please open it?”
This was the scene when our package arrived from Bookroo. Joy fills my heart when my children receive something in the mail. Childhood memories flood my mind like the roads during a Vegas flash flood. I loved receiving mail as a child and, if I’m honest, still love it today. Bookroo is a book subscription service for children. Like most parents, I strive to create lifelong readers in my house, and what better way to do it than with new packages arriving on a monthly basis. Both the child and the parent can be excited about some fresh content in their at home libraries. Subscriptions are available for board books and picture books to cater to all ages.
Diving into the box was a blast! Each book is individually wrapped, which makes for an exciting opening experience. I could wrap a toothbrush in wrapping paper, and Liam would be excited to open it; therefore, I love it that Bookroo wraps each book to make it special. What was the best part about it? Selfishly, my favorite part was that it made bedtime a breeze that night! We were anxiously awaiting story time so that we could read the new books. Anything that makes putting pajamas on and brushing teeth easier for me is something that I’m willing to invest in!
If you’re like me, you struggle with birthday ideas for your children when they are already engulfed in toys. I plan on adding this to Liam’s birthday list this year because it is educational, fun, and doesn’t clutter my house with more toys! Check them out, here, today for the 3rd box FREE with any multi-month subscription! Use the code CORDCOURT and check out the pictures of our opening party below!
