We all know how important reading with children is for their cognitive and emotional development, vocabulary and language skills and crucially their IMAGINATION! When we enjoy books WITH our children we bond, share experiences and create memories to treasure.
Studies show that the more books children have in the home, the more likely they are to love reading and feel confident. When we as parents and caregivers LOVE the books too it makes the reading of the same beloved books again and again and AGAIN……. not so bad!
We would love to introduce you to and invite you to be a member of Yes Bébé Book Club! Books you AND your children will both enjoy as much as each other while you make those magical memories together.
So What is Yes Bébé Book Club?
- A new book delivered to your door every month. We seek to provide you with NEW, quality and exciting books. You might also find the odd surprise along with the book too!
You will also receive a specially created collection of ideas via email to help get the most out of the book including activities, questions to explore together, information about the author and a monthly challenge for all members!
- A Book Club isn’t a Book Club without a good chat! We will have ongoing discussions in an exclusive members only Facebook Group so you can share with other members your thoughts, your children’s joy and all the fun you have had enjoying your new books!
- For just a small amount a month you can be a member of the best Book Club for children! If the value of the book chose comes up less than this figure (some fantastic books which we love to include in Book Club sometimes do) you will receive Book Credit to spend on other books from Yes Bébé.
Is this Book Club for me?
When you sign up you can specify which age range you would like to receive books from: 0-18m, 18m+, 3+, 5+, 8+, 11+. These age groups have been carefully considered and feedback from members taken on board. They no longer mention an upper age so you can select the category that truly reflects the child’s age, ability and interest level. The minimum age is based on publisher recommendation. It also encourages what is the central aim of Book Club: to bring people together to share the joy of reading.
The books are not connected to a set curriculum so ideal for home educators too and are carefully selected to enjoy together. It might even be a way to get your teen chatting with you as you share the same book! In these core categories you can expect to receive a fictional story book. We are introducing additional categories covering other genres, for example educational/non-fiction, learn to read, Waldorf and more….
If you aren’t a book worm yourself or have a reluctant reader then now is your chance to take a fresh look at reading and learn to love books WITH your child. The activities, info and challenges will bring a fun element which bring the books to life.
We will make every effort to make sure all books included are new releases to avoid duplicating any books you already own. We are unable to alter the book should you purchase the book yourself. You are able to cancel at any time by going to PayPal and then Recurring Payments.
What is the difference in age groups (fiction)?
0-18: Typically includes sensory books, board books, picture books, touch and feel books, nursery rhymes and more. Books in this category are actually often suitable up to age 3 and beyond as books children will interact with by themselves
18+: This category was devised primarily for story books for the younger audience, mainly for adults to read to children.
3+: This category is designed to help children expand their world and tickle their imagination. Books include picture books, story books, early readers, alphabet, counting, interactive titles and concept titles.
5+ Early reading books designed both for adults to read to children and for children to build their reading skills.
8+ Short chapter books, appropriate for children in this age category.
11+ Longer chapter books, appropriate for children in this age category.
14+ Young adult fiction books, designed for cursive readers.
What are Waldorf Books?
Waldorf books are aligned with Waldorf education and principles, which focuses on cultivating
children’s imagination and creativity.
Books found in this category are:
– Picture books;
– Activity and crafts;
– Seasonal books;
– Story books.
Please note, a large part of Waldorf philosophy is not to rush children to grow up. Therefore, if you aren’t familiar with, some titles they may appear young as there is more emphasis on the picture and creating your own story. However, in terms of Waldorf education they are age appropriate.
Any other benefits of Book Club?
- A special discount code for use on all books on the website, only for members.
- Exclusive access to pre-order books that we’ve found and can’t resist making available to you on our quest to find the perfect book each month.

The cut off for signing up is the 5th of each month, if you sign up after this date you will be added to the next month’s Book Club. Existing members don’t need to do anything at all. All books will be sent on the same date of the month regardless of the date you signed up.
