If there’s one thing that almost every one of my friends and family members know about me, it’s that I love to read. And because of that, I’m a big believer in the importance of literacy. I’ve been reading to my boys every night since they were babies and both of them love to read on their own as well. That’s why I love the concept behind Marmalade Books.
This brand new Canadian-based company offers a monthly subscription box of age-appropriate books chosen for their quality and entertainment value to help build a generation of readers. Available in customized boxes for three different reading levels, there’s a Marmalade Books box for kids of all ages! Recently I received one of the Middle Grade Novel boxes to review and I couldn’t wait to see what it was like.
The box that arrived contained one paperback book, one hardcover book and a few fun extra goodies including mini erasers, bookmarks and pencils. It also came with a little note that explained what the two books were about and why they were a great choice for kids. My boys were so excited about having new books to read and we decided to read a chapter of Journey to the River Sea every day as our nightly bedtime story. So far, Zackary and Benjamin have both loved the tale of a little orphan girl sent to live with unfriendly relatives in Brazil.
But what’s even better about Marmalade Books is that a subscription encourages continued reading each and every month while also letting kids enjoy the feeling of getting a surprise in the mail, something every child loves. And all the books selected are great for reading together as a family too, which helps encourage parent-child bonding and family interaction!
The Marmalade Books boxes come in three different ranges: a Baby Books box featuring two to three board books, a Picture Books box containing one paperback and one hardcover picture book and the Middle-Grade Novels box containing one paperback and one hardcover chapter book. I love that these books don’t just encourage reading, but also help kids grow their own library of beloved books to reread or share with friends in the future!
