EXCITE! BOOKS The New "Netflix" for Children’s Books! Review and Giveaway!

How cool is this new program!  Think of it as Netflix but for children’s books instead of DVDs.  What a wonderful way to get kids EXCITED about books!
So what is Excite! Books you ask? Excite! Books is much like Netflix. And you can also get netflix in Australia just click here to see how to get american netflix in australia. You receive either 1 book, 2 books or 3 books monthly, depending on the plan you sign up for.  Prices range from $4.99 to $14.99/month.  Each book is teacher certified and are hand-selected so that they are age and grade appropriate for your keiki.
How it works: You sign up online and choose your membership plan.  You let them know the grade level or age of the child the books are for. Then the books are shipped to your house.  It’ll be like Christmas every month!
Here’s the really cool part…after your little one has read them, they simply send them off.  But they don’t send them back to Excite!, instead they use the pre-stamped, pre-addresses envelope (that can fit up to 12 books) and they ship off their already read books to a school library in need! Your kids can choose to donate all, none or some of the books.  They can even send books of their own that they’ve previously loved.   
How cool is that?! I love this idea…we have books coming out of our ears but of course we always want new ones, so this way we can donate them easily and still have fresh reads for the kids.  And my son loves getting things in the mail…so he’s sure to love receiving a new set of books every month…in fact, I bet he’ll be “EXCITED”! 
Try it now! If you want to try out this program or give it as a gift (what a great gift that gives all year!), you can now get a 4th book free!  Just enter “4th Book Free” in personalized message field.  Then type your personalized message to the recipient, if you wish – don’t worry, the discount code won’t show up on their gift card.  
I think this would be a fantastic gift idea for your child’s teacher and her classroom!
