You already know that at Mommy Moment we value reading – both in adults and children.  Marmalade Books is another great way to get your kids reading!


Marmalade Books is a monthly box subscription service with the latest and best children’s books, covering 3 different age groups from 0-12.

Pat Oldroyd the founder of Marmalade Books, has been in the children’s book business for over 20 years. It all started when Pat’s sons were in elementary school. She established an author visit program for the school and fundraised to place many new books in the school library. From there she worked in the children’s department of one of the leading independent book stores in Canada, eventually running the department for many years. Then it was on to a children’s educational store where Pat helped the business create and develop a book department. Pat has a reputation for picking bestsellers and pinpointing just the right book for each child.


The Baby Box comes with 3 board books perfect for ages 0-3.

The Picture Books Box with one hardcover book and one paperback book is great for ages 4-7.


The Middle Grade Novel Box comes with one hardcover and one paperback novel for ages 8-12.
