Book Box

Book Boxes contain several little surprise items that coincide with each book’s story.

How it works:
⚫︎ Check out a copy of the book that goes along with the book box (book boxes do not come with a copy of the book!)
⚫︎ Open the items as you reach specific chapters in the book (they will be labeled.)

After you’ve finished one of our book boxes, please consider taking a brief survey about them here:
