We all remember our favorite childhood book. Reminiscing about Alice Schertle’s “Gus Wanders Off” can still bring a smile to my face. Children’s books create an opportunity for parents to bond with their children, and they also can be used as educational tools. But with children’s literature booming into a $3.1 billion industry, finding the best books is a tall task, even for the most enthusiastic parent.
Zoobean launched the beta version of their online community, search, and subscription service to help parents comb through and discover the best books for their kids. Utilizing innovative and powerful search tools, Zoobean allows you to search by age, topic, character, and “most loved.” Zoobean users and a handpicked team of parent curators provide reviews and recommendations. Through reviews and comments, parents can avoid purchasing books that are not right for their child, or are just junk.
Through the subscription service, parents can receive a new book from the handpicked collection each month with free shipping. The service ensures that you and your children will always have new books to read, selected for being the best of the best. Zoobean also includes links to purchase the books on Amazon for subscription and non-subscription members. On top of that, the Zoobean team blogs about childhood education and focused book reviews. In the aftermath of the tragedy in Oklahoma, one of the most recent blog posts suggests the best books to begin a conversation about natural disasters.
Zoobean welcomes you into a personal and helpful community that online book merchants lack, with the inventory and selection that physical stores cannot provide. But even more, Zoobean is about continuing the enduring relationships that reading with your children creates. You will never forget the stories of your childhood that have impacted you in some way. With Zoobean, your children will have the same endearing experience.
Zoobean was a showcased startup at our Tech Cocktail DC mixer.
