Each box contains two to three age appropriate books and other learning tools for your child. Just Like Me! takes into account several criteria while making book selections. We consider the subject, authors, awards, and prices of each book we review. Each book is read and discussed by Just Like Me! before it is included in any subscription box. Once the contents of the box are selected the final product is a complete Just Like Me! Book Box filled with fun books, educational tools and fun gifts to encourage positive child development. We work hard and take our time to make sure each box is just right before it is sent out.
