Childrens Book Clubs (Buying Clubs) - What's the Real Deal?
Childrens Book clubs have been around since the early 1900's. They are buying clubs that usually have wonderful introductory offers such as, "Get 6 books for $2!" So what's the real deal? Are they legitimate or a scam?
On this adventure we'll take you on a review of several of the largest book clubs, and let you know which ones we trust. Come on - let's get started!
Or...skip right to the
one book club
we can recommend.
One of the largest and oldest childrens book club, Book of the Month Club began in 1926, has sold over 500 million books to members in the U.S. and is still around today.

This is one of the better childrens book clubs as you can cancel at any time and there is no purchase commitment. Shipping is also free on your introductory offer.

I have the best memories of getting those colorful Scholastic Book Club fliers at school! My parents let me buy 2 books every time we got one and I couldn't wait to get home and fill out my order form, it was so hard to only choose two!
Now my kids are enjoying the Scholastic Book Club too! When they attended charter school we loved going to the Scholastic Book Club Fair at school and ordering books from them throughout the year. Now that we homeschool, I'm so happy to say that we can still be a part of this wonderful childrens book club!
