My kids really enjoyed decorating these book boxes. We did add tape to the bottom. I had a huge problem with book bags falling apart last year and these are so much better!

These are going to work great as my students' book boxes for reading!
This is my third time ordering for a school year - have worked perfectly the prior years.

I bought these for my students to use as book boxes. I love that they are cardboard so that children can personalize their box with drawings and decorations. They are not that sturdy, though and fall over easily with books inside. They were fairly easy to assemble but needed reinforcement with tape, in my opinion. My biggest complaint about this product is the price (too pricey when you need 20+)...

Great for teachers and students
We use these for our summer school reading students. It helps keep their reading materials organized and they can personalize their holders! Students and teachers really love these!

Student Read-To-Self Boxes
My students keep their Read To Self book selections and their Read To Someone fluency folders in these boxes. I label the front with their name, and they all sit on my library shelves until our Daily 5 ELA rotations.
At the end of the year, my students draw and decorate them with marker illustrations of the favorite book characters and illustrations we've share throughout the school year (Jack and Annie from Magic Tree House, Tacky the Penguin, Hedgie the hedgehog from Jan Brett's books, Junie B. Jones, Humphrey the Hamster, Amelia Bedelia). We call them our Memory Boxes, and they take their journals and writing portfolios home in them for the summer!
