This post is influenced by a new affiliate relationship – I received a subscription box for free and the links in this post are affiliate links. I have since ordered a box for myself using my own money, and all reviews are my own opinion without influence.
Earlier this year, I realized that my kids are now 3 and almost 5 years old. And that we hadn’t updated the kids book collection since the kids were born. That means the book shelf was still fun of simple baby books. I had removed a few of the books that I hated to read, but it was just a dozen really well-loved books. I know some people are frequently gifted books and don’t ever have this problem, we do. Our book collection is small.
Yikes. I had considered going to the book store to buy more books, but like any mother, my day is full of other tasks and it just never happened. I had big plans at Christmas to buy the kids new books — but that didn’t even happen. So, we trudged along with the same ol’ books bedtime after bedtime.
And then someone reached out to me about LillyPost – a monthly book subscription for kids.
LillyPost Is Exactly What We Needed
- I had been meaning to buy new books for months.
- Every time I go to Costco, I suffer from a condition called indecision and I am unable to make any decisions about which books to try.
- That one time I took the kids to a book store, everyone left in tears.
- Ordering books online is hard – because of indecision.
- I just don’t have time for the library – or interest. I know that’s bad, but now that I work (and now that the library is closed due to physical distancing), it’s just not part of our routine. I grew up going to the library, but it’s weird in a new town and I just find it to be a place that I’m not comfortable in.
What did we get?
The box arrived at the end of February, and we received 3 books for kids aged 4-7. (There is a box for kids 0-3, and a mixed ages box if you want a little of both).
These books are awesome. I would not have picked them out but mostly because my attention span to pick out a book is based off the cover. The story behind “Bertie Wings it”is as much inspirational for me, as it is for the kids. I love the story line in all three books and they just embrace some good wholesome values and conversations that my kids need – I would probably argue that these books remind me to be a better version of myself and not panic as well.
I can’t wait for my next book to arrive – I placed an order today. I also wanted to remind you that just because these books are awesome doesn’t mean that you’re going to have perfectly attentive kids – my kids are crazy and story time always looks like the bottom picture.
My Husband loves the new books
Every time my husband does bedtime, he raves about these new books from LillyPost. He loves the graphics, the story line, and the length of the books. The kids love them too. We let them pick out their books and it’s been a month of reading Bertie Can Fly.
I have placed another order for April. I’m only doing the order month-to-month right now, but I figured this monthly book subscription is going to be that change we need right now. We can’t go buy new books if I wanted to, and the kids are just doing the same old same old.
LillyPost is a good choice for you if you need some new books in your children’s life. I know that many of us have outdated book shelves and just need something new to add to our day. I will probably continue to order a book box from time to time. I don’t need a ton of books, just a little spice in my life.
LillyPost also has a gift subscription option. It cost me $35 CDN to order one month with shipping & handling for three books to be sent to a friend. That’s a fantastic birthday idea for kids. It’s simple, easy, and gift wrap options are also available.
