Members are already finding value in the service: “My two year old daughter loves books and was in awe when she received this special package,” said Jeff G, a Prime Book Box customer. “The selection of books to choose from was great and I appreciate the hardcover format. This is helping us build a great library our daughter, Abby, can enjoy throughout her childhood.”
“As a mom who’s spent over 20 years reading and reviewing children’s books, the best part of my job is sharing a love of reading with kids and their families,” said Seira Wilson, Senior Editor, Amazon Books. “Over the past few months, it’s been both exciting and rewarding to hear that Prime Book Box is encouraging kids to spend more time reading. Now that Prime Book Box is available to all U.S. Prime members, I hope we can inspire even more children to discover a love of reading that will last a lifetime.”
