Book Club Monthly Subscription

Subscription boxes have increased in popularity, especially during 2020 where we have all found ourselves at home more. The idea of a surprise product or activity popping through your door each month has been a welcome one for many families. Back in 2019, here at Yes Bébé, we launched our Book Club; a monthly book club subscription delivered to your door especially for your children. These aren’t disposable subscription boxes to be used once, these are beautiful books that your family will treasure.

If you want to dive straight in to having a look head to our dedicated subscription site here.

Since Book Club was launched its popularity has grown every month. We are excited to have recently made some changes and added new subscriptions to our range. We’ll be letting you know more about our subscription options and changes below.

What is Book Club?

Book Club is for children from birth through to teenagers. You can choose to add just one or multiple subscriptions to build up your own unique parcel of surprise books for your children each month. You pay one postage and packaging charge. This remains the same regardless of how many books you order. There is even the option to add on one of our popular toy subscriptions such as Lanka Kade, Holztiger or T-Lab to your box too.

The Books

You can choose from a range of categories when building your monthly book subscription including Fiction, Non Fiction, Activity, Waldorf inspired and Book Club member inspired books.

Original Book Club Subscription

Fiction Book Club title

Our original subscription started as a fiction book in the age categories of 0-18 months, 18m+, 3 years +, 5 years +, 8 years +, 11 years + and 14 years +. This has now expanded to include non fiction and activity books for many of the age ranges. To look at options click here.

Fiction

Little Turtle and the Sea fiction books with small world play scene

For our fiction titles we hope to bring you books you may not have thought to buy yourself. Hidden gems, books that will bring pleasure, richness and discussion to your homes and families. For example Little Turtle and the Sea is a beautiful adventure story book, yet can open discussion around plastic waste and pollution in our oceans.

Non Fiction

Creature Feature Oceans books with felt ocean animals

For non fiction titles our aim is to bring you beautiful books, packed full of facts ready for you and your children to discover. We carefully consider what titles have been sent out previously to ensure that you are getting new, exciting books in a variety of themes.

Usborne options are dependent upon what customers have already received. You can see more information about these towards the end of this post.

Waldorf Inspired Books

We love our selection of Waldorf inspired books on the website. We now have two Waldorf inspired book subscription options in Book Club. This includes an Early Waldorf and a Picture Waldorf category.

Here are some examples of the type of book you would receive for Early Waldorf. They would predominately be board books, some with no words, some with short stories. As you would expect from Waldorf inspired books, they are all beautifully illustrated.

For our Waldorf Picture category you would receive books similar to below. They would be picture books, again stunningly illustrated, with stories.

Waldorf books are ideal for families who love to observe and be part of the cyclic, seasonal changes in our world. Families who enjoy taking time to appreciate and care for the natural world. They’re perfect to pair with your wooden toys to let your child continue the stories into their imaginative play.

Early Chapter Books

Early chapter books

Again, this is a Book Club member requested subscription beginning August 2020. These books are early chapter style books. They will fill that tricky stage between picture books and chapter books. Giving children more story, but with gentle themes and pictures throughout to bridge that gap. Perfect for you to read to your child or for a child who is becoming a more independent reader. Having pictures in these types of books help to engage the reader, but crucially helps to support the comprehension of the story as they begin to explore more challenging texts.

If you are looking to build more than one book or subscription into your own custom package, be sure to add all of your choices and check out at the same time. This will ensure you only pay once for postage.

You have total control over your subscription. You can manage it from the dedicated site. Want to change to a different category next month? You can. Need to pause your subscription? You can. You’d like to set up the subscription as a gift to some else? You can. Just add their details and you can then cancel after whatever time you wish. Changes must be made before the 5th of the month. If you’d like to sign up for the current month, ensure you do so before the 5th of that month. For example, to receive a book in August ensure you have set up your subscription before the 5th August.
