This is a review of the $19.95 per month + $5 shipping Board Books subscription, which includes 3 gift-wrapped board books every month.
Your books will arrive neatly wrapped in gift paper and tied with a bow. It’s a lovely touch, and it turns it into an easy gift for a grandparent to pick up! Throw on a card and bow, and they would be presentable for any gift-giving occasion. The paper is really thick and high quality , so the books are both pretty and well protected. The care with which the books were packed tells me the curator has a great love and respect for books.
The information card gives you a brief description of the books included in this box. You can check out their author interviews on the Bookroo Blog.
The box includes 3 board books. With the Board Books version, each story is geared to the very young, and the rich illustrations make these great books for reading to a child. The relatively simple storylines, basic language, and cute characters also make these accessible books for early readers to explore independently.
These can serve as perfect Holiday gifts! I love that festive vibe coming from the wrappers!
Everything in this month’s box!
Hug Machine by Scott Campbell ($7.99)
Who have YOU hugged today? Open your arms to this delightfully tender, goofy, and sweet board book from Scott Campbell.
Watch out world, here he comes! The Hug Machine!
Whether you are big, or small, or square, or long, or spikey, or soft, no one can resist his unbelievable hugs! HUG ACCOMPLISHED!
Now available as a board book, this endearing story encourages a warm, caring, and buoyantly affectionate approach to life. Everyone deserves a hug—and this book!
One thing my kids love about board books are the cute illustrations!
The story is so sweet as it shows how much a boy loves to hug people, which is a beautiful gesture of affection.
I think this page here is showing a maze of HUGS. Hugs actually have some benefits for a person’s well-being, and being hugged also gives us a feeling of security and love! Our almost 1 year old has discovered hugs, so we all had fun hugging when reading this book!
Inspired by Caldecott Honor book Flora and the Flamingo, this series of board books is perfect for the very youngest Flora fans. When a new feathered friend seems so different from her, Flora discovers that opposites, in fact, attract! Featuring fold-out pages and Molly Idle’s graceful artwork, this adorable book of opposites will delight young children as they master new words and concepts.
The book does not only tell a cute story but helps the kids to learn about opposites too!
Here’s an example, hello and goodbye!
And when you go, you’ll also come to a stop!

This month’s board books are awesome! They are all enjoyable reads and the illustrations are great, plus there are valuable things that the kids can learn. The Hug Machine tells us about the beautiful and sweet gesture of a hug, while Flora and the Ostrich teaches and introduces the kids to antonyms. The last book, which is Once I was a Pollywog, let the kids know what animals these babies will turn to when they grow up! They’re truly great reads for beginners!
