Happiness came in the mail ~ Mailatale

If you are a five year old child, you love to get mail.

If you are a five year old child who loves to look at/read books,  and you love to get mail, than Mailatale is a match made in heaven!

Mailatale is a book club for young readers -ages birth through ten.  Parents and caregivers can sign up for a monthly subscription for the child in their lives, and every month a personalized box will arrive via Canada Post for an excited little reader.

When you register your subscription, simply put in the preferences of your child.  The books received are tailored perfectly for the recipient.


  • Hand picked and age perfect
  • Full retail value in books ( 2 or 3 books/month)
  • Themed selections
  • Billed monthly
  • Free shipping

Jillian found over-the-moon joy when I presented her with a monthly box from Mailatale.

Her initial reaction was excitement over finding a personalized card with her name on it.  Then as she dug in she found two books just for her.  The books she received were a part of the March selections - Be Yourself!

A little background about Jillian - she adores books.  Jillian asks me to take her to the library every other day, so a gift of a book is a big deal for this little girl.

We received two books beautifully packaged in tissue.

Her first book is Willow.

Willow is a hard cover, beautiful, award winning book.  Willow is the story about the influence of one little girl, who is full of  creativity, and how she can change her world.    

The second book is Giraffes Can't Dance.  This is a read-a-long  paperback Scholastic book, which also came with a CD.  Jillian thought this was a hilariously funny story, and she loved the CD.  I love reading to my child, but, once in a while I don't mind letting them read a long with a CD. {wink}

Mailatale is a brilliant idea!

Kids love receiving packages.  Mailatale is a great way to consistently introduce great children's literature to young readers.  I think these would make a fantastic gift, that keeps on giving the whole year through.  I love the fact that you don't have to pay all at once, and you could cancel at any time if you need to.    I have a niece and god-daughter who lives across the province,  Mailatale would make a perfect birthday or Christmas gift for.  Each month she would receive a little reminder of how much I love her!

Getting started couldn't be any easier.  Find out everything you need to instill the love of a good book, by visiting Mailatale.

That is wonderful. Daughter looks so happy. I did that for my children when they were little and they loved their books and learned to read early.
