Finding New Books for Your Kids with Bookroo


Thank you to Bookroo for sponsoring today’s post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I have always, always loved to read. There is nothing like getting lost in a good book. And I hope Blaire will always love to read, too. The joy books have brought me throughout the years is immeasurable and the worlds you can experience through a good book are endless. And as a parent, I don’t believe we can ever have too many books! Sure, there are classics we love to read over and over, but we all know, sometimes you just really need to read a new book.

Organizing Books in BasketWe love reading and I’m always searching for fun, new books for Blaire. But I usually find myself in the book store, googling “books for kids” or “books for toddlers” while trying to also wrangle Blaire… then I end up picking the books with the cutest cover or the prettiest pictures. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. I want my kiddos to have a great assortment of books,  but I’m not always the best at picking out those great books… so I decided to let someone else pick the books for me.

Bookroo is a monthly book subscription service, designed to help you find “hidden gems”. Their books are reviewed by a panel of families attending Stanford University (and their kids!) and they pride themselves on featuring books not easily found in your local bookstore. How cool is that? To top it off, the books come individually wrapped, so it’s just like getting a present every month. Blaire was SO excited to open hers and she kept asking Mom! Who sent me a present? Is it my birthday? It was fun to see how excited she was! They have two options for subscriptions to choose from, you can choose picture books (2 books, perfect for children ages 2-6) or board books (3 books, perfect for babies ages 0-2). You can even opt to have it sent as a gift… (remember they already come wrapped, anyways!) and you can choose from a 1-month, 3-month, 6-month or 12-month subscription.

    This sounds so cool! I love a good subscription service and we are always looking for new books. I love that they are more obscure books.

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben
  • Bsquared #BlaireandBen 😍😘☺️
  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
