Bookroo Custom Editions Subscription Box Review
I have always loved picture books. I love using book racks so I can have beautiful book covers displayed. I think of picture books as functional art for my classroom and as a part of my kids bedrooms at home. I always wanted my classroom to be full of a variety of beautiful books for my students to read. Since I love beautiful books so much, I was super excited to hear about Bookroo's New Custom Editions.
Bookroo's Custom Editions allow you to use books as functional art in your classroom. Each of these hardcover books are crafted to be the same height so they will look great together on a shelf. Their spines come in a variety of coordinated colors.
As a Bookroo affiliate, I was provided a free sample Bookroo Custom Editions subscription box in exchange for my honest review.
What are Bookroo Custom Editions?
Bookroo is a book subscription box that ships to subscribers each month. Bookroo offers Board Book Club subscription box suitable for kids aged 0-3, a Picture Book Club subscription box suitable for kids aged 3-6, and a Chapter Book subscription box suitable for kids aged 7-10. Note: Bookroo also has a middle grade box suitable for ages 9-12 but this box DOES NOT include Bookroo Custom Editions.
What Comes in a Box?
Each box includes two Custom Edition Books. The picture book Custom Editions feature uniform spine height and coordinated spine colors so they will create a cohesive collection on your shelf. The Board Book Club box comes with 3 books, while the Picture Book Club box, and Chapter Book Club box each come with 2 books.
How Often Will I Get a Box?
You can choose between Month to Month, 3 Month Prepay, 6 Month Prepay, or 12 Month Prepay options. By default, the boxes will ship every month, but an every-other-month option is available.
My Honest Bookroo Custom Editions Review:
I was curious to see what the custom editions would look like. We opted for the Picture Book Club box, for ages 3-6. I was excited to receive Our Favorite Day of the Year by A.E. Ali, and Poko and the Drum by Matthew Forsythe. Both of the books came as high quality hardcover editions. The spines were coordinated shades of green. The original illustrations were beautifully rendered on the covers.
My sons found both stories very engaging, and we will read these books again and again.
Using Bookroo in the Classroom:
Bookroo is not the cheapest way to grow your classroom library, of course you can find books cheaper at used bookstores. However, if you are looking for a fun experience for you and your class to look forward to each month, receiving a Bookroo box can be a fun reward. Bookroo's Custom Editions are beautiful and will look amazing displayed in your classroom.
Ideas for using Bookroo in the classroom:
Open the monthly box as a whole class incentive for good behavior
Allow a student to open the box as a special reward
Display the books on top of bookshelves as part of your classroom décor
