How It Works

A book club?  For kids?  How does that work?

It's easy.  Because we do all the work for you.  

With Crate Expectations, you can trust that your child will be receiving:

  • the best books from the best authors 
  • specially curated gifts to spark creativity and exploration
  • activities to open up the world of the book
  • our one-of-a-kind Adventure Guide
  • fun with friends as they share their book adventures

Our Adventure Guide is the map to your book club adventure.  Inside you'll find a book-related recipe and STEM activity, author interview, creative writing challenge, discussion questions and recommendations for further reading, along with a planning menu and schedule for your book club meeting. 

We do everything for you -- all you have to do is open the box and unlock your imagination!
