We created these books based on what our community said was most important to them ❤️ The stories were also informed by child development, equity & inclusion, and Montessori research.
We get to your child’s level to understand what they’re curious about, what skills they’re ready to build, and what transitions they may need help exploring. What real pictures do they want to see? What does success mean? What physical book features will keep them engaged and learning during storytime? Just like all of our play products, we iterate, edit, and test our stories with families like yours to make sure they’re the stories your child will want to read and revisit again and again.
We ask for parent feedback and story ideas to make sure we’re creating meaningful stories that your child can relate to and get excited about. We co-created some of our Book Bundle books with families after they reached out to our Cofounder and CEO, Jessica Rolph, about their child’s unique story. In many cases, we were able to explore many stories through the lens of relatable transitions —making a new friend, getting a first haircut, or getting ready for school in the morning. We’re honored to celebrate our customers’ stories with these books.
We work closely with the families in our books, and with equity & inclusion experts, to make sure we’re respectfully representing a range of lived experiences. Our goal is to create books that accurately reflect what each child is experiencing. When children read first-person stories with realistic photos, feelings, experiences, results, and characters, they gain self-esteem from seeing people like themselves reflected, and become more respectful playmates when making new friends.
Montessori philosophy encourages the use of real photos to connect your child with their experiences. While whimsical cartoons can be fun and eye-catching, your child is able to connect the concepts they’re learning during storytime to their own life when they can see real children reflected on the pages. We use real photos, and inspiration from real families in our Book Bundles—and all of our books—to bring you and your family a learning experience that’s representative, inclusive, meaningful, and…so much fun 💜
We’re so excited for you to discover these new books!
Many of the Book Bundle titles include a note from our Cofounder and CEO, Jessica Rolph, that will help provide more background on the developmental stage your child is experiencing and share what inspired each special story.
You can purchase Book Bundles from these Play Kits at Lovevery.com when you log into your account. Book Bundles purchased separately from The Play Kits Subscription will include a $5.95 shipping fee.
Some of these book titles were well-loved by families and were offered in earlier versions of our Play Kits. We created the Book Bundles to allow families the option to get more books beyond the one that is included with each Play Kit.
Every Play Kit includes at least one book that’s also tailored to your child’s exact stage of learning. Our Book Bundles allow us to offer support for more transitions and skills your child is exploring during each developmental window.
Each Book Bundle costs $18, with no additional shipping cost if it is purchased together with your Play Kits Subscription. A shipping fee of $5.95 applies if the Book Bundle is purchased separately from The Play Kits Subscription. Each Bundle includes at least two titles, in addition to the books that are already included in The Play Kits. Each Book Bundle includes stories that were specifically written for the developmental changes your child is experiencing at that stage.
When you add the Book Bundles to your Play Kit Subscription, they will automatically be included in all future Play Kit shipments. If you’d like to remove the Book Bundle from an upcoming shipment, you will remove the Book Bundle from all future Play Kits you and your child receive. You can add the Book Bundle back to your Play Kits Subscription at any time.
The Book Bundles are available as a set only, not as individual titles.
You can easily add the Book Bundle to your Prepay & Save Play Kits Subscription by logging in to your account at lovevery.com. Once you’ve added the Book Bundle to your subscription, you will receive the two additional titles with each of your Play Kit shipments automatically.

Yes, your Book Bundle will ship with your Play KitS, in the same box to reduce packaging waste 🌱 Your Book Bundle will share tracking information with your Play Kit.
Many of our Book Bundle stories are board books made with recycled paper and soy-based ink. Soy-based ink makes paper more recyclable (because de-inking is easier), utilizes a renewable resource (soybean byproduct), and creates significantly less air pollution and hazardous waste compared to petroleum ink.
Some of our Book Bundles for babies feature materials with textures different from paper, such as silicone and fabric, for an engaging and interactive storytime experience.
We are constantly listening to your feedback and ideas. Stay tuned for more exciting updates 🤩
