We have read to our kids from the time they were newborns. Books were a huge priority in my house growing up and, as such, I developed a passion for reading that I'm now able to help foster in my own children. In fact, the other night, I walked past my son's room and found him snuggled up under the covers with a flashlight and a book. I remember doing the same thing when I was his age. What a milestone! I have to say it was one of my favorite moments to witness as a mom.
My daughter is no different...Bedtime is just not complete without a story. So, I knew they were going to be uber excited about Story Surprise, the new monthly subscription box service that delivers a beautiful, hard-cover book to your door every month. Each title is carefully chosen by a curator for your individual child. Mine already jump and down when they hear the delivery man coming up the driveway. Haha! And I'm thrilled to be able to give them the gift of reading. In fact, this would be an amazing holiday or birthday gift for any kiddo. Just in case you waited until the last minute like I did...Haha!
And I just love the story behind the company...After their daughter was in the hospital, the owners were inspired to create something that could bring joy to families that had nothing to distract them from their time in the hospital, but the television. By handing out books, they were able to help these children escape their situation through the magic of a good story. And thus, the inspiration for Story Surprise was born. The team really focuses on giving back and in addition to teaming up with hospitals to provide books, they have also partnered with Boys and Girls Clubs to give libraries of books to needy school districts. If that's not a reason to give Story Surprise a shot, I don't know what is!
I think any child could benefit from logging in some extra reading time and it's so much more exciting when you're holding a brand new book in your hands...Isn't it?
