Ever heard of Excite Books? It’s kind of like a “Netflix of Children’s Books” where for a monthly fee you’ll receive great books for your kids through the mail. Each time they complete reading a book, they’ll place a sticker on their Progress Calendar and when they’ve filled 12 spots, they can donate Basically how it works is that you sign-up for their free introductory offer and pay only $4.99 shipping + handling and they’ll send you a product sample kit containing:
- 3 age specific Excite books
- 1 educational activity
- 8 free gifts
- Excite Kids pilot wings
- Space Shuttle Cockpit Poster
- Excite Reading Completion Stickers
- Excite Reading Progress Calendar
- Movable Propellor Airplane Glider
- Thank you letter with each order
Then if you’d like to continue with the program, for a low monthly cost you may elect to join for as low as $4.99 a month. When they send you your 12th book, they’ll also include a pre-addressed, postage paid envelope big enough to hold up to 4 lbs of books. You can then decide which, if any, books you’d like to donate to this school in need. The great part is that you can also include your own books by placing them in this envelope.
At first I was a little skeptical because I prefer to select my kids’ books. However, I was impressed with 2 sets of titles we received – 102 Dalmations, Winnie-the-Pooh and Tigger Too, The Emperor’s New Groove, Disney Year Book 2008, Sticker Activity Fun Teddy Bears, & Sticker Activity Tough Trucks. The gifts were pretty great, too – Matching Items Activity, Magic Mix-a-Bubble, & Flying Gliders. The girls were thrilled!
I explained the program to Girlie Girl and she immediately went to her bookshelf and selected a few books to donate. “I don’t read these anymore, Mommy. Someone else might like them.” she said.
It’s a great way to receive great books for your children and to also teach them the importance of helping those less fortunate. Give the gift of learning.
