This year I told family members and friends to skip the toys for my son. We have SO many little odds and ends for my son to play with, and most of the time they end up on the floor and never put away. Instead, I want to build my son’s bookcase with one story at a time. One way that we are doing this is with Story Surprise!
What Is Story Surprise?
Story Surprise is a fun new subscription book service. It delivers a brand new, high quality hardcover children’s book every month right to the home. This is exactly just what we needed! My son will look forward to receiving a package in the mail every month, and I will look forward to reading along with him.
What was the inspiration?
The inspiration for the company came when the founder, Eric and his wife had to spent time in the hospital with their young daughter. Their situation was minor compared to other children and families, but they were touched by what they witnessed and left the hospital with a mission.
The children and parents at the hospital were going through such a difficult time and the only real distraction was the TV. Having been in the book business their whole life, the couple realized they were in the perfect position to help. They handed out brand new books to the other children during their stay. This provided them with the best distraction as children easily fell right into the story when their parents read to them.
The concept for the Story Surprise web site was formed under the roof of a children’s hospital as they witnessed the power of books in an emotional setting. As a result, giving back to the community is in the fabric of our company. We are working with Boys and Girls Clubs, giving libraries of books to the most needed school districts in our communities and establishing partnerships with hospitals to provide books and services.
