Encourage a Love of Reading at Home with Bookroo {+ Coupon Code}

**Product received for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

 It is certainly no secret around here... we are book people! 

Yes, we love our books and I  always try to make sure that my kids have a good variety of books to choose from. While we have our own personal collection at home that we are always adding too, we also have always enjoyed taking advantage of library services at school and in our public library too.

And then a pandemic hit...

Like so many places, our public library closed for many months in the midst of Covid-19. Likewise, school closed for a time and as they opened back up, we opted to continue e-learning as a safety precaution as well. Though the libraries have reopened their doors as well, we haven't quite felt okay with venturing back in just yet. Still reading is an important part of our lives, and in protecting not only our mental well-being, but the kids academics as well. As parents, it might just be one of the best tools in our toolbox during this strange school season. The American Academy of Pediatricians has said, “reading regularly with young children stimulates optimal patterns of brain development, strengthens parent-child relationships at a critical time in child development, which, in turn, builds language, literacy, and social-emotional skills that last a lifetime.”

And so, we find those books in our home library even more important... but how do we discover different reads for the kids to enjoy that we don't already have at home?

For that, Bookroo is a fantastic option!

So, what is Bookroo? They explain it best themselves:

We started Bookroo with a simple, powerful goal: to help parents spend more time reading with their children. We do this through affordable and exciting curated monthly book deliveries. We believe in the life-changing impact of reading with a child—it’s never too early or late to start! We’re happy you’re here, and can’t wait to hear what you think.

A monthly subscription service for kids books!? I love it! We were recently given the oppurtunity to try it out for ourselves. Bookroo offers three different options depending on your child's age and reading level. They have board books for the youngest of book fans, picture books for early readers, and chapter books for those more advanced kid readers ages 7-10. While we still enjoy picture books around here, my daughter is just venturing into chapter books so we opted to go with the Chapter Book Club to help introduce us to some new options. Take a look at what we received:

First and foremost, I was very impressed with the packaging. Each book was individually wrapped in a fun wrapping paper. Not only do kids love unwrapping a gift, but it kept the mystery going a bit more too! It definitely made the experience all the more fun...When kids are excited about reading and books, they are certainly more likely to enjoy it, right?

The books we received were Cody Harmon, King of Pets and The Gauntlet. They are quite different from one another, which is great for adding more variety and introducing kids to different genres that they may enjoy. Cody Harmon, King of Pets was more up my daughter's alley, but we look forward to reading both. Oftentimes when we head to the bookstore or even the library, we find ourselves heading to the series we know. There's certainly nothing wrong with that, but I love this idea of being surprised and venturing out of what we typically read. Oftentimes I have found great stories myself in doing so, so I love that this service gives my kids the chance to do the same. 

More than anything though, in this trying time of our lives, I love that Bookroo brings the adventures of reading right to our door. I've often heard it said that if you have a good book, you will never be bored and I find that to be so true. When we are stuck at home, books can take us on grand adventures far, far away...safely! What could be better than that?
