About Us

The concept of The Lollipop Book Club formed when my children were toddlers and our house was overrun by toys they received on holidays and birthdays. I could appreciate the excitement they experienced opening lots of presents. But at the end of the day there was a lot of stuff around that they really did not need.

So I started to replace toys with books whenever giving presents to my kids. Much to my disappointment, the books were quickly tossed aside as they sought out packages that provided more immediate entertainment value.

I knew that my gift of books would provide a much richer, longer-lasting experience for the child. I just had to find a way to inject excitement at the point of receiving the book so it would be more fun to give.

Instead of adding the books to a pile of presents, I began mailing them to my children. Their reaction was incredible! So I started mailing books as birthday presents whenever my children were invited to a party. The feedback I received from the parents was unbelievable! The children were thrilled to get a package in the mail and were just as excited to read the book inside. The lollipop was an added bonus!

Over the past 10 years, The Lollipop Book Club has enjoyed incredible success by connecting friends and family, near and far, with the special children in their lives. We invite you to try our book club. We promise you won't be disappointed!
