Here's what parents and children are saying about Reading Bug Box
"The amount of thought and effort that went into putting this box together was incredible! By adding her interests and reading level, they picked a perfect variety of books for her!"
"My 7 y/o is excited to open his box for the books & special small gifts. He has received chapter books, interesting boys stories, biographies, and history books. His interest in reading has rocketed! This is the best investment. "
"My little girl is 8 yrs old and hates to read. But already I'm seeing a change... she can't wait for the next box! I like that the books are chosen especially for her. It makes it easier to get her into it. 2 thumbs up!"
"Great selections! This last box was perfect! Lauren did an amazing job putting the box together, and now my son has us reading the books to him every night. Thank You!!"
"I got this for my almost 12 yr old daughter who is a huge reader... and it was a HUGE hit! She received 3 books and loved them all, and she also loved the goodies that came in the box. She can't wait for the next box to come! Highly recommended."

*Holiday shipping cut-offs are determined and published by the mail carriers, and once your Reading Bug Box leaves our store, The Reading Bug is unable to guarantee time or date of delivery, or account for any unexpected delays. The Reading Bug ships from San Carlos, CA and longer distances or remote locations may require extra time for shipping and delivery.
Books for each Reading Bug Box are selected by the expert booksellers at The Reading Bug, our independent children's bookstore. As booksellers, we eat, sleep and breathe children's literature, and our selections reflect our experience reading books at storytime, working with local schools and talking with the children and parents who shop with us every day. Personalized subscriptions include books that are hand-selected by a member of our store staff and perfectly matched to the recipient, based on the specified age and interest of each child. We are confident each Reading Bug Box is packed with love, attention to detail, and the very best books we can find.
We'll pretend we didn't just hear that! Like I said, we're book experts. It's our job to know how to match the best books to every young reader, regardless of their age, interests or reading level. We make avid readers out of reluctant ones with our book choices - and we introduce voracious readers to new interests and adventures! That's our job - and we love it, and are passionate about it. Reading Bug Box grows with your child as they improve their reading skills and expand their interests.
We've got you covered. You can add a child to any personalized subscription and save 15% plus the extra shipping. More than 2 children, and you'll need to purchase multiple subscriptions, however.
As booksellers, we're constantly seeking out new hits and hidden gems for our customers. We've got a great track record and it's unlikely you'll be receiving a title that's already in your collection! But if you do, we want you to share the love (of books) and donate or gift the duplicate. Send us a picture of you gifting the book and we'll give you a credit (up to $5) to spend on any of the millions of books available at www.thereadingbug.com
No problem! Just log into your account and skip the next month's renewal - or cancel any time with a month-to-month subscription. It's really easy, I promise.
All boxes ship between the 10th & 20th of the month. Orders placed after the 20th will ship the following month. Need it sooner? No problem! Email us and we'll do our very best to accommodate!
Your card will be charged on the first day you subscribe. You will be rebilled on the last day of each subsequent month. Boxes ship between the 15th and 20th of each month, and any order placed before the 20th will ship its first box in the current month.

For month-to-month subscriptions: Cancel any time before billing (last day of each month) to avoid charges and receipt of the month's box. For 6-, or 12-month subscriptions: Once you cancel, you will not be billed for another term, but you cannot be refunded for boxes remaining in the term (For example, if a 6-month subscription is canceled after the fourth month, two more boxes will still be shipped). Cancel before the last day of the month of your renewal to avoid being charged for the next term. Renewal dates are shown in shipping emails from Reading Bug Box or in the "My Account" section of www.readingbugbox.com
