If there’s one thing you should know about my child, it is this:

She is completely book obsessed.

I don’t just mean that she enjoys being read to, I mean that books are basically a comfort item at this point.  We brought her favorite book to the last surgery she had because we knew it would be the one thing to keep her calm & happy.  And we were right.

So when the fine folks at Bookroo told me about their book subscription service it took about .2 seconds for me to go all fangirl on them.


…I asked calmly.

Listen ya’ll.  This is the Birch Box of books.  You need this.  I know you can get books on Amazon, etc.  BUT.  Does Amazon surprise you once a month with books?

No. No they do not.

What’s great about this service is the simplicity.  You pick board books or picture books (I picked board because hello I have a toddler who loves destroying stuff), then select your “plan” (month to month, 3 month, or 6 month) and then you wait anxiously patiently for the books to arrive.

And when they arrive, they do not disappoint.


This packaging delights me to no end and immediately made me feel like Maria from Sound of Music. 

“Brown paper packages tied up with strings…la la la la la la favorite things”

(I’m not exactly a songbird. G’s lullabies have been…creative, to say the least).

But seriously, how fun is it that each book is its very own present? SO FUN. I also need to know where they get their wrapping paper.  Isn’t it purty?

And here are our books this month:


We love them all! The mustache book in particular is super cute because it comes with a little pouch of punch-out mustaches that you then place on faces in the book.  Reading + play = ALL THE WIN.

And the best part? I hadn’t heard of a single one prior to receiving our order this month.  I love that they’re putting terrific & lesser-known books in our hands!

Or maybe this is the best part – my friends at Bookroo are giving you $4 off your next order if you click this link!

Happy reading!
