Every book we select was initially recommended by a read-aloud expert, award committee, or parental advisory board. We test all the books with children for quality, readability, and age-appropriateness.
Our subscriptions contain equal amounts of classic books (15 years or more since first publication), current books (less than 5 years since publication), and special highlights chosen for illustration, education, diversity, or other outstanding quality.
The characters in our selected titles are literary in origin. We do not consider books featuring characters from toys, television, or movies. We may include books which, due to their popularity, eventually produced shows and movies.
The subscription includes only one book within a series. We may sparingly repeat an author or illustrator but not within a series.
