Purchase: Family Reading Crates

April 21, 2019

Welcome to the 17th installment of the Build Your Library Family Reading Crate! How many have you collected?

The May 2019 theme is Books in Space!” In contrast to our February 2019 non-space related sci-fi crate, this crate is all about outer space. I’m including at four books in our galactic adventures themed box – a picture book for younger children, a middle grade family read aloud, a book for older readers, and a book for you, the parent! These books are handpicked by me so that you are all reading quality literature.

Every box will include a booklet with discussion questions and rabbit trail ideas, as well as a link to a page on our site with additional links, booklists, movies and documentaries, and printable activities to go along with the books.

You’ll also always receive a few exclusive crate bookmarks, and at least one or two additional items that go along with the monthly theme.

It’s like getting an all-inclusive family-wide unit study in a subscription-style book box each month!
