The Story Box is a monthly book subscription that delivers new, age appropriate books to your doorstep every month…
Holly and her husband Clint, of The Story Box, were kind enough to send a free box to C for review. Holly is a speech-language pathologist and reading is a very important part of her life and job. However, as parents, reading with our children not only gives a boost to the learning process but it also allows for some bonding time.
Holly and Clint also use a portion of each subscription fee ($21.99) to donate books or other materials to benefit at-risk children or children with literacy disorders.
So I…or should I say C, received this awesome little box and he loved it! The box contained 2 books (1 paperback and 1 hardback) and a handy-dandy parents guide. He loved the books! (He begged me to let him take “his cow book” to Sam’s Club on Tuesday.)
Downfalls are few and far between, because face it, it’s a box…of books…how could you not love it? However, what I didn’t love was the paper-ziggy-zag-frilly-makes-more-of-a-mess-than-it-is-worth confetti in the bottom of the box. Definitely not conducive to a 2.5 year old. I also wasn’t thrilled with the box design itself. I honestly expected to see brighter colors or more design to the box to intrigue children or get them excited from the start, essentially it get’s thrown away so it’s not a terribly big deal, but C wasn’t even interested in the box initially.
On top of donating books to those in need, The Story Box was kind enough to offer a coupon to all of our BurritoBuzz followers! When you subscribe use coupon code BURRITOBUZZ for $10 off! This coupon will be good on December 20th, 2015 and, like most, cannot be combined with any other offers and cannot be used by the same individual more than once.
Definitely a 5 out of 5 and I will sneak in an extra star for giving back to the community!
