Each box comes with a book, “Can’t Wait” craft kit, activity and discussion guide, and “After Reading craft kit.

Subscriptions renew on the 20th of the month (January, April, July, October).

We offer 3 subscription options:

  • 6-month Subscription: Receive a new box every three months, for 6 months (2 boxes total). Makes a great gift!
  • 1-year Subscription: Receive a new box every three months, for a full year (4 boxes total). Great as a gift! Homeschool families LOVE this plan!
  • Quarterly Subscription: Just subscribe, and receive a new box every three months. Easy peasy. You can pause or cancel your subscription anytime!

We’d be sad to see you go, but if you must, you can log into your account and cancel within your preferences. To avoid being charged for your next month we’d recommend canceling one week prior to the 20th. Otherwise, your account will be rebilled for that month’s box. If you cancel fewer than 7 days prior to the 20th (the day we ship out boxes), the cancellation will go into effect for the following month.


We are very open to feedback on what would make Bear & Bud Book Club a better fit for your family, so please feel free to contact us at and let us know!

Subscription boxes ship around the 20th of the month on a quarterly schedule: January, April, July, & October. Single boxes ship 1-2 days from purchase. We ship via USPS. Most packages take between 3-5 business days, but can take up to 10 business days to arrive. If it’s taking longer than that, feel free to contact us at and we’ll help look into it!

Bear & Bud Book Club selects high-interest books in a variety of genres. We are deeply committed to selecting texts with diverse characters, subjects, and authors. Our books are extensively reviewed by teachers, kids, and parents, led by Karen, our founder and certified literacy specialist. After reading the books, we brainstorm fun and creative ideas for book-themed crafts. We share our ideas with our resident book club members for approval, then create easy-to-follow tutorials to include in each activity guide.

Not a problem! Just let us know if this happens, and we can suggest an alternate book to go with the craft you’ve received in your book club box. Also, if you send us a picture of yourself donating the book or giving it to someone else, we'll give you $5 off your next subscription.

Totally! We send enough supplies for crafts to be made twice (the “Can’t Wait” craft, and “After Reading” craft). Your child can enjoy with a sibling, friend, or grown-up!

Most definitely! We happen to think books + crafts = the best kind of gift you can give.

To skip a month, you can log into your account, or go to “Manage Subscriptions”, found in your confirmation email. Select “Delivery Schedule” and find the upcoming month you would like to skip. On the right, click the link “skip”.

Not just yet, but we’re working on it!
