"Quality, age-appropriate children's books picked monthly by a respected expert in the field and delivered with a personal note from Grandma! It's a win for my grandchildren, for their super-busy working mom and for me!"
I'm an auntie to three beautiful nieces. Unfortunately I live far away and can't see them as much as I would like. However, with Marmalade Books I can send them love and special surprises that allows my nieces to know I love them every month and I'm always thinking about them. Thank you Marmalade Books.
"Marmalade Books curates the most darling children books and bundles them up in a sweet little package with a personalized note for the entire family to enjoy. Opening our first box was a memory making moment and the beautifully illustrated books now happily sit on our bookshelf and will be enjoyed for years to come."
"Marmalade Books is a wonderful service! My young granddaughter lives in another city. Every month she receives a hand-picked selection of age-appropriate children's books. It means so much to me to know she is receiving fresh, stimulating books on a regular basis, and not always rereading the same tired books that happen to be laying around. And I know my granddaughter looks forward to her new books! For her it's like Christmas every month. And when I visit she always brings me books to read to her. It means so much in this TV/ Internet age. Pat's knowledge in the field means my granddaughter receives only the finest children's stories, curated by someone with years of experience. I really cannot think of a better gift to give my grandchild...than the gift of reading."
"Who doesn’t feel a thrill when opening a new book for the first time? It was the eager anticipation of beginning a literary journey which fueled my passion for reading from an early age. The Marmalade Book boxes are the perfect way to ignite a passion for reading in my own children. The themed boxes are wonderfully fun; we look forward to checking the mailbox each month to see what treasures have been delivered. For our family, it’s been a delightful experience and the perfect way to get everyone off their devices while exploring new authors and titles."
"Marmalade Books, what a treat for dedicated gifters of books. This is the perfect support, wisely selected sets of well written and well illustrated books for young readers packaged in a box that arrives by mail. First of all it is a happy surprise to receive two books in a box and second for children who rarely receive anything by mail it is a terrific treat to find a box addressed to them. I only wish I had more grandchildren to send these boxes to."
