How We Select Picture Books
Most people are only familiar with a small number of children’s books—classics from their own childhoods or a few top sellers. While these titles can be terrific, they’re also a very limited part of the wonderful universe of children’s books.
We wanted to find and send books beyond this small handful, so we created the world’s largest platform dedicated entirely to children's books to discover amazing books by talented authors and illustrators that will become treasured favorites. We call these books our “hidden gems,” and we help families fill their bookcases with them.
Through our platform, we have access to thousands and thousands of children’s books. We combine this broad reach with in-depth reviews, ratings, and feedback from parents, kids, educators, and experts with decades of experience to finalize each month’s book selections.
Here are a few of our favorite picture books from past boxes to help you have confidence in our book curation and get a feel for the types of books you can expect to receive in your monthly deliveries.

Perfect for a new generation of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day readers, this charming story about a grumpy cat gently shows how far a little sharing can go.
Bernice is having a truly rotten time at her friend’s birthday party. First, everyone else gets a piece of cake with a frosting rose. But not Bernice. Then, everyone else gets strawberry-melon soda. Bernice gets the prune-grapefruit juice. And it’s warm. The last straw is the one lousy (squished) candy she gets from the piñata. So when the balloons arrive, Bernice knows just what she has to do: grab them all. And then, poor cross Bernice gets carried up, up, and away. Luckily, she figures out just how to make her way back down to the party…and she brightens lots of other animals’ days on her way.

Roads give you chances to seek and explore. Want an adventure? Just open your door. Join an adventurous rabbit and his animal friends as they journey over steep mountain peaks, through bustling cityscapes, and down long, winding roads to discover the magical worlds that await them just outside their doors.

This delightful debut picture book celebrates both the joy of venturing into the unknown and the value of staying connected to loved ones back home. It stars a little ball of yarn who can’t resist the tug of adventure, the twists and turns of discovery, or the comfort of family and friends.
Edmund is a ball of yarn and a ball of energy! From the time he could roll, he’s been bouncing down his front steps to explore, and his parents have always been right there to reel him in and roll him back up. But now that he’s bigger, Edmund is ready to discover the wonders of the world. Everything is new and exciting—but sometimes, even a little ball of yarn gets lonely, and there’s nothing better than the comfort of being around those he cares about.
McToad likes Thursdays. Why? Because on every other day of the week, McToad mows Big Island, but on Thursdays, McToad mows Tiny Island. To do so, he puts his mower on the back of a truck, which drives to a train, which goes to a helicopter, which flies to a boat, which uses a crane to put the lawn mower onto Tiny Island. There McToad mows and drinks some lemonade, and before you know it, it’s time to turn around and go back home. But first, the mower has to get lifted by a crane, to get put back on a boat, which is lifted by a helicopter, and . . . well . . . you get the idea.
Papillon is a very fluffy kitty. So fluffy that he’s lighter than air! His owner tries to weigh him down, but Papillon just wants to fly. One particularly sunny day, he floats right out the window!

Max, a kitten, and Bird, a very young bird, want to be friends but Max also wants to eat Bird, so they strike a deal.

Get the Box
Selecting books is our favorite part of the job, and we put our heart and soul into it! The process involves a huge amount of online research and in-person vetting including in-house experts, librarians, and real parents and kids. We know you already know about classic and popular children’s books, so we focus on finding hidden gems. For full details on our kids book club, check out our FAQs page.
If you like toting kids to the book store and trying to convince them to buy something other than TV-character delights, or spending hours doing your own book research in order to buy books online… go for it. If you want fantastic, curated books delivered on autopilot, let us help! (Plus, the retail value of the books we send always exceeds the subscription cost!)
Nope! You can cancel at anytime by emailing [email protected] and one of our friendly customer advocates will help you.
First off, we’ll argue that there’s no such thing, since books are amazing and research shows the more books in the home, the smarter your kids will be. But if you DO start running out of room, we have an every other month plan that allows you to slow the growth of your library! Also, consider donating some to underprivileged homes to make room for new ones!
Since we’re all about hidden gems, it’s quite unlikely that you’ll get a book you already own (even avid bibliophiles!), but IF you do, just send us a picture of you giving the duplicate to a friend and we’ll add a $5 credit to your account.
Lucky you! Consider getting each of them their own subscription (yay!), setting up an alternating subscription for board and picture books, or create your own alternating subscription with chapter books and board or picture books by buying 2 every other month subscriptions. (***Bonus tip: If you have 2 subscriptions going to the same address, we have a special code that will give you 15% off the second subscription in perpetuity! Email [email protected]!)
We started Bookroo with a simple, powerful goal: to help parents spend more time reading with their children. We do this through affordable and exciting curated monthly book deliveries.
