Story Surprise, the latest in innovative monthly subscription service trends launched today. Story Surprise delivers the most popular hardcover book titles to children for as low as $5.79/month including free shipping.

Story Surprise helps children discover a love of books from an early age, encourages one-on-one reading time with family, and allows children to participate in the original form of children’s entertainment--a good story book. All at a price point not found in the book industry today.

Making the customer experience as simple as possible is a top priority for the company. New members sign up on the Story Surprise website. The typical signup process takes less than a few minutes -- 3 clicks and you are done.

The inspiration for came from founder Eric Shmuely and his wife.
“As book wholesalers we are in a unique position to provide books at a very low price point. From research and our personal experience as parents of young children, we know that by encouraging kids to read at an early age, they are much more likely to develop a long term passion for reading and learning.” said Mr. Shmuely. The service provides a few things all parents and children love--a surprise in the mail, a book, and a bargain. “What a great way to encourage kids to turn off the TV, put down the tablets and turn on their imaginations,” concluded Shmuely.
