What is Amazon Prime Book Box for Kids and how does it work?
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – Amazon has officially launched the Prime Book Box.
It is basically a monthly subscription service for children’s books. If you subscribe, you will receive (delivered to your doorstep) a box with four hardback books or two picture books or hardcover novels. This is Amazon’s first monthly subscription service in which it offers physical books.
Here’s everything you need to know about it and how it works.
What is Amazon Prime Book Box?
Prime Book Box is a paid subscription service where you receive a box of children’s books every month, two months, or three months. Each box contains four hardcover books (for ages two and under) or two hardcover picture books or novels (for ages three to 12). Amazon says you’ll save up to 35% off the list price of these books.
How does Amazon Prime Book Box work?
Choose a package
Choose the age of the reader and whether you want a book box every 1, 2, or 3 months.
Depending on the plan you choose, the available books will be divided into four different age groups for readers: newborn to two, three to five, six to eight, and nine to 12. Amazon publishers will choose books for your selected age range. And they’ll use your purchase history to avoid books you’ve already purchased.
Amazon said its publishers “read thousands of books every year to find selections your reader will enjoy over and over again” and “you will discover new releases, classics and hidden gems appropriate to your reader’s age.”
Preview your books
If you’re worried about the books being handpicked, don’t worry. Each month you will receive a preview of the box by email and you can choose to swap certain books from a short list of alternative options before the box ships.
Open and read
Amazon said every box will be shipped to your door for free. And you can skip a square at any time.
