subscription library of kids books {Bookboard}

Being a writer and lifelong bookworm, I love paper books.  After experiencing bookcases overflowing, I made a rule to donate each book I read, if I can rule out re-reading them, which is most of the time.  When it comes to my daughter, however, I cannot throw out any books because we do reread them constantly.  Her bookcase has reached its maximum capacity so now I am trying Bookboard.  Bookboard is a digital resource for kids books that operates on monthly subscription, much like a Netflix for books.

My iPad barely feels like “my” iPad anymore.  My daughter has commandeered the device and it is overflowing with her apps, games and books.  I now have no chance of seeing the iPad ever again, thanks to Bookboard.  Rather than buying individual books that kids may or may not like, Bookboard offers a full library of popular reads to sift through.  The service contains more than 400 books for kids up to age 12 to discover, unlock, and collect.  It contains incentives to keep kids reading, like unlocking new books once a goal has been met. Kids will also come across books they may not have seen otherwise as Bookboard offers suggestions like a virtual librarian.

With this library at your kids fingertips, they can have a whole world of books while on the go.  Books are heavy so bringing more than a couple in the car is annoying.  So when kids are out at dinner waiting for their food or sitting in the doctor’s office, they can stay productive and learning… not mention quiet!

Bookboard pricing options:

  1. Six month subscription is $29.94 ($4.99 per month)
  2. Month by month subscription – $8.99 per month

    This is a really great idea! I am still trying to get my kids to read digitally but they still love books. I might give this a shot, though.

    Oh I so need to get this for my boys. They are bookworms and we run out of new books quite often.

    I love “real” books, and I’ll never give them up, but you can’t beat the convenience of electronic versions. Sounds great!
