Oliver got the best Christmas gift! My sister-in-law's boyfriend Dave gave him a subscription to BookBugs, which means he gets a book in the mail every month this year. Thank you Dave!
I got an email asking me to fill out a survey with Oliver's age and interests. I chose things like animals, trains and trucks. Oliver's first book, Dear Zoo, came in the mail about a week later. The next month we got Gossie. Oliver loves both books.
It's so much fun to have a new book to read at bedtime, and getting a package in the mail for Oliver every month is very exciting.
This service is not just for babies. They have packages for all age groups up to 13+.
BookBugs is also a social enterprise. For every three books they sell, they donate one to a child in need.
Interested? Let's go through exactly what BookBugs offers.
- Gift Cards - you enter the amount, the recipient gets books (this counts toward the charitable program as well)
- Donate Books to Children in Need - Buy bundles of books to be delivered to the children who need them most.
- Subscriptions - You can sign up for year long, one book, two books, or three books subscriptions.
- Just Buy a Book - It's kind of like Amazon, but you know you are helping give books to children in need. Just choose the child's age and you can see suggestions.
The founders of Book Bugs offered you guys a special deal! If you sign up for the year long subscription, you can get a one month free trial. Just enter the discount code TPLDISCOUNT at checkout.
This is a great gift for parents to get for their own kids, but it's also a wonderful gift to get for your grandchildren, nieces, nephews, friend's kids, Godchildren, and kids you love.
Think about how many kid's birthday parties you go to with a gift you know they will play with and forget about within the week? This gives them something to look forward to every month, and who doesn't love getting mail? It also encourages children to love reading. Slam dunk.
Give Book Bugs a try. I know you will love it. We certainly do!
