CHILDREN’S BOOK OF THE MONTH

Our Children’s Book of the Month program is available by subscription for three age groups. Each month our fantastic children’s book buyer, Lisa Plummer, chooses a book—or two or three for the board book level—to inspire your child’s imagination and sense of adventure. 

The process is simple. First, choose the age level of the child you are enrolling in the program. Next, choose a six-month or 12-month subscription. We will charge your credit card one time for the amount of the subscription level you have chosen.

This program is ideal for grandparents, godparents, aunts, uncles and family friends!
