Gift Giving...Simple + Unique = Perfect!

At this time of year we tend to get into a rush and begin to feel rather overwhelmed. GUWB has a recipe for the perfect solution to any gift giving troubles you may have! A gift subscription to GUWB offers so much.

IT'S SIMPLE. Signing up for a gift subscription is quite easy. Use the "present" icon to guide you in the right direction. Follow the steps and your gift is done! No need to worry about whether the gift you are giving is too small or too big. You won't have to wonder if they already have this gift since it's such a new concept and product. With the wide variety of book choices, the child you have in mind for this gift is sure to find something that interests him/her! To top it off, it's purchased online and the ordered books are delivered directly to the child's house--FREE!

IT'S UNIQUE. A gift subscription to GUWB is a OOAK (one of a kind) idea. Not only does the child have a variety of books from which to choose, there are connection ideas inside the book covers helping to make the books and characters come to life even more. The connection idea cards can provide guidance to parents with our Read TWO Experience. It answers the questions--"Do I read this book To my child, With my child, or let my child read it on his/her Own?" A gift subscription to GUWB will also be a gift that keeps on giving. Once the books have been read, return them in the provided mailer and we'll send you the next books in your cue! Another key piece to this idea is that children have "CHOICE" in what they are reading. Donalyn Miller talks about the importance of "time to read and choice in reading material" in her article "Book Whisperer: Are good readers born or made?" Both of these important topics are addressed with a gift subscription to GUWB!

IT'S PERFECT. A gift subscription makes a perfect...
-stocking stuffer
-stand alone gift
-birthday gift
-baby shower gift
- a "just because we love you" gift
