Bookroo Subscription Box Review + Coupon – October 2017

Bookroo October 2017 Box

Bookroo is a subscription service that sends 2 books for children every month. They have a picture book plan (for ages 2.5 and up) and a board book plan (for ages 0-2.5). 

Bookroo October 2017 Wrapped

Bookroo sends the books individually wrapped each month. It’s a special touch and my children enjoy unwrapping the books each month like a special gift.

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This review is of the Picture Book, $17.99 a month, box.

Bookroo October 2017 Wool2

Bookroo October 2017 Wool2

Lily Wool by Paula Vasquez – Retail Value $14.99 (found on sale here for $12.65)

What can I say other than every book can’t be amazing. Lily Wool fell flat for us. It felt disjointed and while the premise was cute about a sheep that is different from the herd, the story wasn’t exciting, funny or special.

Bookroo October 2017 Edward

Bookroo October 2017 Edward2

Edward Built a Rocketship by Michael Rack – Retail Price $16.99 (Out of Print)

Edward decides he wants to travel to space so he builds a rocket ship and starts his adventure. This book was fantastical and had a great rhyming beat. Our favorite part was the message to Edward’s mom that Mercury says hi.

Verdict: The value of Bookroo this month was about $32 (using retail prices) which is higher than the $22.99 cost of the box ($17.99 a month + $5 US shipping). We didn’t love Lily Wool, but we did enjoy the story about Edward. While this month wasn’t our favorite I still recommend this book subscription for book loving children in your life.

What do you think of this month’s Bookroo?
