Little Fun Club children's book subscription box service.

I am absolutely in LOVE with Little Fun Club. You might be thinking that I have to say that because this is a sponsored post, but the truth is, I adore this service. I LOVE THEM!!! 💓

This is our second month receiving a Little Fun Club book box in the mail, and I think we were even more excited this time around than the first. The difference is that this time we knew what to expect: awesomeness! 🙌

Little Fun Club children's book subscription service. Get three adventurous books a month for $25/month.


ICYMI: In Case You Missed It

Little Fun Club is a book subscription service for children’s books. They cater to kids ages 0-12, so depending on your child’s age, you can get anything from board books to middle-grade novels.

Reasons Why I Love Little Fun Club So Much:

  • They hand-select every book that goes into your box, so it’s customized for your child’s age and reading preferences.
  • The books are brand new. 🌟
  • The books are regular edition books, not book club edition (this is a big deal to me).
  • I LOVE their selections. They put every book through a rigorous selection process before adding it to their warehouse, so you know each book comes highly recommended. Find out about their selections here.
  • You can add your child’s reading preferences to better customize your box.
  • Your subscription grows with your child. (No updating profiles or switching accounts!)
  • They’ll replace a book if you already have it. They’ll send you a replacement with your next box. You don’t have to return anything.

After spending some more time with this company and talking with the people behind it, I’ve learned that they genuinely care about their customers. They want you to be happy and they’ll work hard to keep you that way. A lot of thought goes into each box!

Little Fun Club also has great customer service. They’ve responded promptly to all my inquiries through an easy-peasy chat box right on their website.

What’s in the Box?

I’m really happy with the books we received this month. My kids loved reading them and I’m glad to have these wonderful new books in our collection.


Milk and Cookies by Frank Asch. I got this board book with my Little Fun Club subscription. Milk and Cookies by Frank Asch

I recognized Baby Bear from some of Frank Asch’s other books, like Happy Birthday, Moon and Popcorn, but I’d never read Milk and Cookies before.

Milk and Cookies possesses the same comforting, warm feel to it that the other Baby Bear books have. Baby Bear and his parents are staying at his grandparent’s house. That night, Baby Bear thinks he sees a dragon in the basement and has a bad dream about it.

My two-year-old loves board books and this is a lovely addition to her bedtime book stack. It’s a good book to read right after a bath and just before getting tucked into bed. Plus, I really liked that it was from an author I’m familiar with and already love.


George Shrinks by William Joyce. We got this book from our Little Fun Club subscription. We love William Joyce!George Shrinks by William Joyce

Last month, we got Ollie’s Odyssey, which is a middle-grade novel by the same author. George Shrinks is a picture book, and at first, my seven-year-old was a little disappointed when she saw it. She was hoping for a chapter book.

However, William Joyce does not write disappointing books. He’s quickly becoming one of my favorite authors for children. If you’ve never read one of his books, I would highly encourage you to do so.

We read the book. It’s hilarious. It’s a similar idea to the Honey I Shrunk the Kids movie and it had my kids laughing out loud as George completed his “to-do” list while being super tiny. In spite of my daughter’s initial misgivings, she ended up loving it. This is a wonderful addition to our bookshelf and something that my toddler will also enjoy as she gets a bit older.

After reading Ollie’s Odyssey last month, Miss K (my nine-year-old) was pretty stoked about getting another toy adventure. Toys Come Home is a collection of linked stories that reveal the history behind each of the toys and how they came to live with their Little Girl.

This is a short book and Miss K devoured it in just a couple of sittings. She said it was a fun book and she liked the stories in it. There was only one spot that was kind of scary, but even then, it wasn’t very scary.

I’ve never read the companion books, Toys Go Out and Toy Dance Party, but my daughter enjoyed this one enough that she wants to read those, too. Along with the slightly larger text size, it has several illustrations peppered throughout the story, which is always a welcome bonus in middle-grade novels!

    How fun! I can see why you are excited for the box to arrive each month. I have read quite a few books by William Joyce, but I think they have all been picture books. I know you mentioned getting a chapter book by him last month. I will have to check it out. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

      Yes! Ollie’s Odyssey is the chapter book we got last month and it blew me away. It was unlike anything else I’d read in the middle-grade category. I hope you get the chance to read it!

    This looks so fun. I have an eight and six year old who are readers. I Ike the sound of that Toy book for my daughter. I will have to look into this.

      It’s funny, I wouldn’t have got that book for my daughter if it didn’t come in the box, so I’m really glad it did. My daughter loves the book! We’ve been really impressed with this subscription box so far.
