Amazon Launches Curated Children’s Book Subscription Box
Parents of voracious readers can now get a curated selection of children’s books delivered at up to 35 percent off the list price.
You love that your kids are big readers, but after flipping through the same titles again and again, story time can get a little dull. To keep reading interesting for you and your little ones, Amazon has launched Prime Book Box, a children’s book subscription box for Prime members that can be personalized to fit your family’s reading needs.
Each Prime Book Box contains either two hardcover books or four board books, depending on the age group selected. Parents can choose between four age groups: baby-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. You can then choose to get new books delivered every one, two, or three months, depending on your needs. The best part: subscribers will score these titles at up to 35% off their list price, with each box costing only $22.99 (amazon.com).
The books chosen are hand picked from the selection of top-rated titles on Amazon by the company's book editors.
Amazon isn’t the first company to start a children’s books subscription box service. With Prime Book Box, they join the ranks of other wonderful subscription boxes including:
