A while back, we sold complete subscription-style Family Reading Crates. These included 3-5 physical books, bookmarks, ra elated toy item, and a unit study-like booklet with discussion questions and topics to discuss the books you read. The book selections included a picture book, a family read-aloud, a book for an older independent reader, and even an adult book for parents or older teenagers.

Family Reading Crates Subscription Boxes

We were often asked if the booklets would ever be made available after the crates were sold out, and we always said that they could/should/would be in the future… Well, we finally got around to it! Sorry for the delay! So if you ever wanted the booklet with one or all of the Family Reading Crate picks, here they are.

Note: These are all now sold as PDFs, and are designed to be printed off as a folded booklet. If you just hit print (or view online) the pages will appear out of order. If you print it off with the “print both sides” and “flip on short side” options, it should print the pages so if you fold the pages in half. You will then end up with a couple page booklet. Alternately, you could just hit print “one-sided”, cut the pages in half, then rearrange the numbered pages in order, and staple the top corner.

Typically, the below-listed books are in order as follows:

  • family read aloud
  • young listeners/picture book
  • older readers
  • parent or older teens

All required books, as applicable for your age ranges will be linked to Amazon for easy sourcing (we appreciate any use of our affiliate links!), or feel free to hit up your local library or used book store!
