Erin is such a bookworm, just like the rest of us in the family. Sometimes, it can be hard to know what books to pick for her. Books2Door have a great new service, where you can order a subscription box for children! Find out more below!
What is Box2Door?
Box2Door is a monthly subscription service from Books2Door. You can sign up to receive monthly packages delivered right to your door and cancel whenever you like so there’s no long-term commitment.
How much does the subscription cost?
Each month, the subscription costs £9.99.
What age is it suitable for?
Books2Door currently offers 3 different subscription boxes for the following ages:
What’s included in the subscription box?
The subscription box will differ each month, meaning you always get something different. Inside the box you’ll receive between 3-4 books, activities or colouring sheets and merchandise to go with the books.
What did we think?
Erin’s going to be 8 on her next birthday so I ordered her the subscription box for 7-9 year olds. She’s a very competent reader so needs something that is fun but will also challenge her. The Box2Door monthly book subscription means that we don’t have to choose… Books2Door does this for us.
It fits through the letterbox!
Firstly, the box actually fits through the letterbox so you won’t need to worry about not being around for a delivery. It’s really fun for children rot receive their own post as well and Erin loved this aspect. Erin’s first box arrived while she was at school so when she got home, I got to tell her she had post waiting on the coffee table.
What books did Erin get?
Inside the box was 2 fiction books and 1 non-fiction book, which were as follows:
- Mr Pattacake goes to Buckingham Palace
- Maggie Sparks and the Monster Baby
- STEM Science Scribble Book
There was also a bookmark and activity sheet/ poster to go with the Maggie Sparks book. Both Erin and I liked the fact that the extras matched one of the books.
Were the books suitable?
The books were a great selection, not only for the age group, but for Erin personally. With a mix of magic, humour and science, this couldn’t have been a better box to start with.
At the lower end of this age range, your child might not be a confident independent reader. However, the fiction books are great for either reading alone or with a grown-up. The books aren’t too long either, so they’re bound to keep a child’s interest. It was great to have a bookmark and activity sheet to go with Maggie Sparks and the Monster Baby too.
Although we haven’t done anything from the STEM Science Scribble Book yet, we will do soon. With the summer holidays right around the corner, this will provide me and Erin with some really fun activities at home when we’re not out having adventures.
Great value for money!
For £9.99, the Box2Door subscription box is such good value for money. Just 1 book alone in a shop would cost at least £5.99 so you’re getting much more for your money.
