The Bedtime Routine and Books

The bedtime routine is one we all look forward to in this house. It’s a time to slow down, get quiet and enjoy some one on one time before lights out. The highlight of the routine is when we cuddle on the chair and read books.

After Ellie goes potty, changes into her jammies and brushes her teeth, she gets to pick out two books to read. She has a bookcase full of books and yet it can still take what-seems-like-forever to make her selections. She’s open to suggestions, sometimes, which is a relief as I definitely have books that I prefer over others (no more Calliou please)!

We are always looking to add variety (and quality) to our book collection. I love when we receive books for birthdays and holidays and we check out books from the local library once or twice a month. When Bookroo asked if they could send us a month of books, I couldn’t say yes fast enough.

Bookroo provides monthly book deliveries. They have various plans: 1, 3, 6 or 12 months. Each month your child will receive a delivery of (your choice of) either two picture books or three board books. The monthly price will always be below retail price of the books. We selected the picture books since Ellie is tending to be more interested in “big books” now that she’s almost three.

The Bookroo box came addressed to Ellie and once opened, she saw two “presents” inside which she couldn’t unwrap fast enough. It’s a small detail but one that works REALLY well to get kids excited.

Ellie couldn’t wait to read her new books, and my husband and I were equally relieved to have some new book choices in her collection. Both books are super cute, I love that they are vetted and chosen carefully by the Bookroo team, also moms themselves.

One month free!

I’m excited to offer a coupon code for a month free of any 3-, 6- or 12-month subscription. A book subscription makes an awesome present for a child of any age – or even a great gift for an expecting parent who is looking to start their collection.

The coupon code for a free month is MYLOVE. When you sign up for any monthly plan, the equivalent of one box will be deducted from your total.

Enjoy those books – and tell me, what is your favorite part of the bedtime routine?
