Reading Chest: Online children's book rental service REVIEW

Tristan was offered a complimentary two-month subscription to Reading Chest: an online book rental service aimed for children aged between four and nine years old.

Our first delivery contained four books (specially chosen to reflect Tristan's age and reading ability) plus several Reading Chest branded goodies, including a sticker chart with stickers, a bookmark and a red book bag. The bag was great at keeping the borrowed books together and separate from our personal book collection.

It was truly easy to return the books: you just place them in the prepaid envelope (included when the books are first delivered) and wait a few days for new books to arrive!

We swapped books several times over the two month period, and all the books arrived in a timely manner, and in immaculate condition. As the books are sent in an envelope, the postman delivers them straight via your letterbox.

This reading scheme is a fantastic way to boost and encourage your children to read more, and a great supplement to school homework. The sticker chart inspired Tristan to read more, and he was always very excited when waiting for new books to arrive!

Reading Chest offers three packages:

Bronze £9.95 per month (initial delivery of 4 books, 2 swaps a month)
Silver £12.95 per month (initial delivery of 4 books, 4 swaps a month)
Gold £15.95 per month (initial delivery of 6 books, unlimited swaps)

They offer various and well-known book series including Bug Club, Collins Big Cat, Oxford Reading Tree, Yellow Door Phonics and many more.

You can find out more via their Facebook page, and sign up on their website!
