Meet the New Bookroo
Children's Book Platform
We're absolutely thrilled to be introducing our new chidren's book platform! Learn more about what from some frequently asked questions.
What is Bookroo?
In the past, Bookroo has purely been a monthly subscription for children that helps them fall in love with reading by combining the excitement of opening a gift with the discovery of a new treasured book, aimed at helping families build their library with books that are hidden gems rather than already widely popular books. We have a board book box (for kids ages 0-3), a picture book box (for kids ages 2-6) and a chapter book box (for kids 7-10).
Bookroo is now adding to that offering by building out our children's book platform (bookroo.com/books) as another way to help people find quality books (regardless of whether or not they're subscribed to Bookroo).
What is the purpose of the Bookroo Children's Book Platform?
The primary purpose is to help more people discover quality books and promote a love of reading!
One of our goals for this platform is to do a lot more to highlight authors and illustrators. By working with creatives to add unique content to their personal pages and featuring select creatives on the platforms homepage, readers will be able to discover new creatives and their work, and feel connected to them.
How does buying books on the Bookroo Children's Book Platform work?
Currently, if someone wants to buy one of the books, we're just sending them to retailers like Amazon, although we hope to sell directly through publishers and/or bring more of it in-house in the future as well.
