Review and Giveaway: Excite Books CONTEST CLOSED

As a child, I LOVED to read. My Mom enrolled us in book clubs (anyone remember Sweet Pickles?) and took us to the library often. I think my love for reading served me well in my academic life. Because of this, I strive to instill the same love of reading in my daughters.

Excite Books is not your average book company. They are members of the community who strive to add excitement and energy into your child’s reading activities by allowing your child to be an active participant in all phases of learning and development through responsibility, motivation, and giving back to the community.

The concept is simple. Order a monthly subscription online (similar to Netflix) for one, two or three books to be shipped to a youngster. A teacher certified and age appropriate book is chosen and mailed at an affordable $4.99. Send two books a month at $9.99 or three books for $14.99. Shipping and handling is always the same low $4.95, no matter how big the package.
After Excite Books has shipped a total of 12 books to one address, a prepaid / preaddressed envelope is mailed for a child to donate none, some, or all of his Excite Books to a library in need. Excite Books finds the libraries, arranges for the donations and spreads the joy of reading to a new group of youngsters.

I requested the toddler free trial for Lily and we received 3 books: Nemo, Toy Story, and a matching game book as well as 8 free gifts. Lily loved them all! She immediately sat down and wanted to read. It was great to have that quality time with her!

Excite Books has generously offered one reader a “free trial” of 3 books in any age category as well as the 8 free gifts. Plus, ALL readers wishing to start a monthly subscription can simply type “4th book FREE” into the personalization field at check out to receive your 4th book for FREE!!

Giving the love of reading to your children this Holiday season will be a gift that grows forever!
