Remember back in the day when you logged on to your Amazon account and bought books—and only books? It looks like the mega online retailer is getting back to its roots. (Kind of.) Amazon’s subscription box for kids, Prime Book Box, is launching—and all parents need to know about it.

Oh, and it’s all about those good old-fashioned paper and print reads. Yay! Amazon’s newest subscription service will bring your kiddos actual books. Not downloadable, read on your smartphone books, but instead the IRL versions you can line your little bookworm’s bookshelves with.

So how does Prime Book Box work? To start with, and as the name implies, you need to be an Amazon Prime member. After you’ve got that taken care of, you need to request an invitation—as of now, this service is by invite-only.

When you get your invite, you pick a time-frame. Currently, Amazon offers 1-, 2- or 3-month delivery services. Each box will include two hardcover or four board books, depending on your child’s age. And if you’re wondering how Amazon will know your kiddo’s age, they won’t. You can select for babies and up to age 2, as well as kids aged 3-5 years, 6-8 years or 9-12 years.

Amazon curates Prime Book Box, picking must-have reads for your child. Along with getting a rad reading surprise every month, two months or three months, the book boxes will save you up to 35 percent-off list price, at just only $22.99 per box. Score!
