If you’re always on the hunt for new books for your little bookworm, then The Little Book Box is the subscription service just for you!
Sometimes, searching for reading materials that are suitable for your kid isn’t the easiest thing to do. You’ve got to comb through a list of books to find suitable ones for your kid’s age group. You’ll also have to make sure that the books are interesting enough to grab their attention (you may find a story about a treasure hunt super cool – which may or may not suit the taste of your kid). And, let’s face it, buying loads of books every month isn’t exactly the most economical option. Yet, being busy parents, you may not always have the time to bring the kids to the library.
If all that sounds too familiar, then the National Library Board’s (NLB) book subscription service – The Little Book Box – is perfect for your family!
The Little Book Box surprises kids with eight new books every month!
The Little Book Box is a book subscription service designed for kids aged four to nine. With this service, your family will receive eight English children’s books from the library every month. These books are carefully handpicked by NLB’s team of librarians for young readers, and feature both fiction and non-fiction titles by local and international authors that appeal to a broad range of interests.
Here are some exciting titles that your family may receive in The Little Book Box:
For kids aged four to six
- A Fox Found A Box by Ged Adamson
- There’s An Alien In Your Book by Tom Fletcher and Greg Abbott (also one of our faves!)
- Bunny In The Middle by Anika Denise and Christopher Denise
- The Marvellous Sugee Cake by Quek Hong Shin
For kids aged seven to nine
- The Iron Man: A Story In Five Nights by Ted Hughes
- Ace Agent Spycat And The Flying Sidekick by Darren Lim
- Shine! by J. J. and Chris Grabenstein
- The Ultimate At-Home Activity Guide by Mike Lowery
You can collect the books from the nearest Pick locker or have them delivered right to your doorstep.
The Little Book Box has flexible delivery arrangements to suit the needs of busy parents. You can opt to have the books delivered right to your doorstep or collect them from any Pick locker located in MRT stations and bus interchanges nearest to your home or workplace.
And the best part? The subscription is as little as $8 per month (before GST) for collection via Pick lockers; or $10 per month (before GST) for home delivery for a minimum sign up period of three months! Upon receiving the books, your family will have 21 days to enjoy them. After which, you can conveniently return them through the book drop at any public library near you.
