Early Moments Dr Seuss Review
Is the Dr Seuss Book Club too good to be true? Thoughts from an unbiased mom.
For years I have been seeing the advertisements for Early Moments’ Dr Seuss Book Club and I’ve always wondered if it was legit. I mean 5 hard cover Dr Seuss books for just $5.95 PLUS additional free gifts….it HAS to be too good to be true….right?
Well, I finally bit the bullet and decided to give the Early Moments Dr Seuss Book Club a try because I’m crazy about Dr Seuss and Little Man is at the perfect age to love Dr Seuss as well.

After doing a little bit of research online about the Early Moments Dr Seuss Book Club I found a divide among people….they either LOVE it or HATE it! Those that love it read the fine print and knew exactly what to expect out of the book club. Those who hated it, for the most part, just signed up on a whim without reading the fine print and were surprised to find out that they signed up for an ongoing book club.
Feeling like I knew EXACTLY what to expect I decided that it was time to sign up and give it a try!
Here’s what I found about the Early Moments Dr Seuss Book Club
- The books are full-size Dr. Seuss books that you would buy at any bookstore like Barnes & Noble
- It’s a book CLUB….so there are monthly shipments
- The pricing is standard with other clubs and auto ship boxes
- You can cancel anytime…but it is a never-ending subscription…the cancelation process falls to you.
- A pamphlet comes with your introductory order telling you what to do to manage your account.
So, is the Early Moments Dr Seuss Book Club legit?
Yes. It’s completely legit and has actually been around for a long time. I can remember getting books from Early Moments book clubs when I was a kid.
Well, is the Early Moments Dr Seuss Book Club a good deal?
This is a question that ultimately only you can decide. The introductory offer is the BEST deal you will find on brand new, hardcover Dr Seuss books. I mean where else are you going to get 5 books for $5.95 with free shipping PLUS have the option of 2 more bonus books for just $5.99 AND a couple of free gifts?!
But….do you really want to deal with the hassle of a recurring shipment of books?
After the introductory offer you’ll receive additional Dr. Seuss books at $5.99 plus shipping and handling. Which is about the same price that you can buy Dr. Seuss Books on Amazon…especially if you have Prime!
The joy that comes from joining the Early Moments Dr Seuss Book Club is for your child….remember how exciting it was to get a package in the mail as a child? Little Man LOVES it when his book club package arrives. It’s like a mini Christmas for him! He can’t wait to open it up and start reading his new books!
The Early Moments Catch
NOW, once you’ve fulfilled TWO orders they do automatically sign you up for another auto-ship program with different Dr. Seuss items. This is in the fine print and I find it a bit shady on their part. You can cancel this before it even starts and opt out. I think that is a little sketchy for them to do…but it’s how they make money and are able to offer such an amazing introductory offer.
In addition, here’s the full Membership Agreement as of 2/21/16 so you can read all of the fine print. Please reread this on the Early Moments website because they can change their terms at any time.

That is quite the fine print!!
Is there something better for toddlers than the Dr. Seuss book club?
YES, there is. Personally, I have found that a recurring subscription is just too difficult to keep up with…shipments are constantly coming, I forget to decline books, it’s really kind of a pain.
But, I still want Little Man to receive a fun surprise in the mail to encourage his love of reading. So, we just pay a little bit more than the Early Moments Dr. Seuss Book Club and order straight from Amazon.
