Congratulations to Bookboard, An Award-Winning Children's Book Subscription Service

 FCC Disclosure*

As I mentioned last month, I'm pleased to be a blog ambassador for Bookboard, the innovative children's book subscription service.

Having blogged for many years--and having been approached by various companies who wanted my endorsement, I was slow to accept a brand ambassadorship offer until I found a product in which I could believe and feel confident about recommending.

Bookboard fit that bill for me.

As it happens, I'm not alone in recognizing the product's value for parents and children. Earlier this week the company received a much-coveted 2013 "Family Choice Award" recognizing the best in children's and parenting products.

From the official award announcement:

Bookboard is unique in its ability to motivate and engage kids to read more. Christine Ying of TechCrunch reported, “Bookboard has really identified something to keep my kids engaged and motivated…” “In addition, the service provides a curated reading experience so kids can easily find the next great book.” Jordan Shapiro of Forbes commended, “A thoughtful librarian delivered instantly to your home.  {More}

In addition to sharing news about the award, Bookboard announced this week a new gift certificate program that is perfect for holiday gift giving.

The gift of Bookboard for an entire year is especially suitable for working homeschool families since it allows us to transport hundreds of books easily on an iPad. New books are added all the time, too, and the company takes a lot of pride in sharing collections of books tied to seasonal themes. (For examples, see their Pinterest board.) The content on the service is curated by a real, live, professional librarian, and the books offered are matched to a child's learning skills and interests. (Parents also have the power to exclude or add books as they see fit.)

If you're still not convinced that you want to add the gift certificates to your holiday wish list--or to purchase a gift certificate for a family on your gift list, I would like to personally invite you to experience a free trial. I think you'll find that Bookboard brings the best of technology and childhood literacy to your electronic device in an engaging and convenient way.

Update: Since I shared this post, Bookboard has received another award, the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) Gold Award in the "Family" category.

  1. Well done Bookboard! Having a Kids Book Subscription is something every parent should consider. Reading for your kids is a good thing, no matter what medium you use. Joining a book of the month club when our son was just 6 months old and reading at least 30 minutes every day for him was the best thing we ever did, as we clearly see that now he is far ahead of others at the same age. Reading everyday for your child is worth every penny!
