Parents, remember the days of Columbia record club? Maybe you don’t. How about Book of the month club?

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, the book of the month club would send you a new book every month. You would tell them what types of books you like and each month get one sent to you. There were also record and cassette of the month clubs fo rmusic.

Amazon is reviving the joy of monthly mail deliveries with their Prime Book Club. If you are an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up to receive books for your children. They have several different age groupings and will send 2 books at your designated time.

If you’ve been looking for a way to spark your kids to read, this could be it. I remember receiving Disney and Dr. Seuss books through the mail. I eagerly anticipated each shipment and would rip it open to see what new books were sent. I’m sure your kids are the same when they get something. Breeding that euphoric feeling when they ead books is one step to them becoming lifetime readers.

I’m not associated with Amazon Prime book box, but I’d still encourage you to check it out and see if it’s something that would be right for your kids.
