Most people are only familiar with a small number of children’s books—classics from their own childhoods or a few top sellers. While these titles can be terrific, they’re also a very limited part of the wonderful universe of children’s books.
We wanted to find and send books beyond this small handful, so we created the world’s largest platform dedicated entirely to children’s books to discover amazing books by talented authors and illustrators that will become treasured favorites. We call these books our “hidden gems,” and we help families fill their bookcases with them.
Through our platform, we have access to thousands and thousands of children’s books. We combine this broad reach with in-depth reviews, ratings, and feedback from parents, kids, educators, and experts with decades of experience to finalize each month’s book selections.
Here are a few of our favorite books from past boxes to help you have confidence in our book curation and get a feel for the types of books you can expect to receive in your monthly deliveries.

The morning Nora Ratcliff finds a baby in the flowerpot on her front steps her life changes forever.

Will Mabel find the answers she’s looking for—or will she discover that families are people who love each other and look after each other and that’s most important of all.

From award-winning author Beth Vrabel comes a powerfully moving story about a magical friendship, coping with disability, and the pains of growing up and growing apart. Twelve-year-old Caleb is shorter, frailer, and more protected than most kids his age. That’s because he has cystic fibrosis, a diagnosis meaning lungs that fill with mucus and a shortened lifespan. Caleb tries not to let his disorder define him, but it can be hard with an overprotective mom and a perfect big brother. Then Caleb meets Kit–a vibrant, independent, and free girl–and his world changes instantly. Kit reads Caleb’s palm and tells him they are destined to become friends. She calls birds down from the sky and turns every day into an adventure. Her magic is contagious, making Caleb question the rules and order in his life. But being Kit’s friend means embracing deception and danger, and soon Caleb will have to decide if his friendship with Kit is really what’s best for him–or her. This new paperback edition includes a Q&amp;amp;A with the author as well as a sneak peek at Beth Vrabel’s next middle grade novel, The Humiliations of Pipi McGee.
