This new feature should be launched in 2018 in the U.S. and users can already ask for an invitation and order their first boxes.

This new subscription, available for Prime members, costs $22.99 per box, which works out to 35% below the cumulative price for the books, according to Amazon. Users can choose to get their books every one-, two- or three-months. The books are divided up by age groups : baby-two years, three-five years, six-eight years and nine-twelve years.

Until now, the only book subscription available was the Amazon Prime Reading one, which highlights Kindle e-books and selected digital magazines and travels guides. With this new service, Amazon puts back physical books in the spotlight, allowing parents to move their children away from screens, but also to get more informations about their users’ households.
