A Good Book Makes a Great Gift With GiftLit Monthly Book Subscription + #Giveaway #MBPHGG17

 Thank you to GiftLit for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions shared are my own.


For many (including myself), reading is an important part of life. Many precious memories revolve around reading for me, whether it be when I was very young, curled up next to my mom on the couch before bed as she read aloud a chapter of "Charlotte's Webb", or reading through a page-turning series as an adult. In both of those scenarios, a good book is at the center of an experience that I will never forget. 



I am so excited to share with you about a company that has made it their main focus to give quality books as gifts! GiftLit offers 3, 6, and 12 month gift giving plans that are categorized by age group and theme. They also offer book substitutions in case the recipient would like a different book than the one they received in their gift box.



I was given "Dragons Love Tacos" from the "Cuddle Collection"  theme (ages 2-5) which pairs a hard-back book with a stuffed animal for the "littles" in your life! This book came with an adorable stuffed dragon holding a taco. This simply could not be more precious.




As a family, this has been one of our favorite books for years. My two sons have requested this book be read to them at least 50 times (but probably more) and I have to say, I never mind because it's just that cute and funny. Our original copy is so worn and battered from years of wear and tear and having two young sons "enjoy" it like they have! I'm so very happy to have a brand new copy, with the accompanying stuffed dragon to boot!


My 5 year old absolutely loved this stuffed dragon to go along with one of his favorite books!

This is one of many incredible books in this themed collection that will surely become an instant favorite for your little one. You can browse their site to see every option available. 

I was also given a book from the 5-8 age group and "Beginning Chapter Books" theme called, "The Thank You Book".


My 6 year old immediately wanted to read this book when we opened up our package. 


Chapter books have started to play a very real role in our household as my oldest son is 6 years old and in the 1st grade. I love the introductory chapter books because they are not overwhelming or intimidating for new readers. They help to build confidence during this learning time in our kid's lives. My son feels confident in knowing he is reading more of a "big kid" book, yet isn't getting stumped by words that are a bit out of his range, still. 

There are many options in the 5-8 category and you can peruse all of them here! They also have categories such as books for babies, ages 8-12, 12-14, young adult and adults. There is a book for everyone on your gift list this holiday season. Giving the gift of reading is the gift that continues to give. Every time that person picks up your book to read it, or chooses to have it read to them, memories are being made and literacy is encouraged.

ONE FOR ONE

The "One For One" program that GiftLit has created allows them to partner with "Books For Kids", a national non-profit whose mission is to promote literacy in children. In addition to 10% of sales from books that are purchased from this special collection (which can be found here) being donated to this program, GiftLit uses a "one for one" model which donates a book to children in need through "Books For Kids". Every time a book is purchased, one will be donated and another child will be given the gift of reading! I can definitely get behind this.

 As a former educator myself, I have seen first hand the amazing way a child's brain begins to develop and grow when they dive into reading.
