Looking for an interactive reading experience? Look no further than a subscription to Once Upon a Book Club! Each box includes a book, along with individually wrapped gifts marked with page numbers. As you read, you’ll be prompted by sticky notes to open a gift that is directly related to the plot of the book. For example, a character is working on a puzzle in the book and the gift you receive is the same puzzle they are working on! Isn’t that amazing! Coming in young adult and adult versions, these boxes are fun for readers of all ages. One time purchases are available, as well as prepaid three, six and twelve-month subscriptions.
