Smile as your kids discover books they love.
Reading is fun when you have great books. We spend hours (and hours) finding these hidden gems for you.
Hm... sorely tempting
So what's the catch?
There isn’t one. Seriously. Still not convinced? Read on.
How do you make sure the books are good?
Selecting books is our favorite part of the job, and we put our heart and soul into it! The process involves a huge amount of online research and in-person vetting including in-house experts, librarians, and real parents and kids (including a panel of families attending Stanford University). We know you already know about classic and popular children’s books, so we focus on finding hidden gems. For full details, check out our FAQs page.
Why not just buy books at the store or on Amazon?
If you like toting kids to the book store and trying to convince them to buy something other than TV-character delights, or spending hours doing your own book research in order to buy books online… go for it. If you want fantastic, curated books delivered on autopilot, let us help! (Plus, the retail value of the books we send always exceeds the subscription cost!)
If I sign up am I locked in? Are there any initiation, cancellation or hidden fees?
Nope! You can cancel at anytime by emailing [email protected] and one of our friendly customer advocates will help you.
What if I have too many books?
First off, we’ll argue that there’s no such thing, since books are amazing and research shows the more books in the home, the smarter your kids will be. But if you DO start running out of room, we have an every other month plan that allows you to slow the growth of your library! Also, consider donating some to underprivileged homes to make room for new ones!
What if I get a book I already have?
Since we’re all about hidden gems, it’s quite unlikely that you’ll get a book you already own (even avid bibliophiles!), but IF you do, just send us a picture of you giving the duplicate to a friend and we’ll add a $5 credit to your account.
What if I have kids in multiple age ranges?
Lucky you! Consider getting each of them their own subscription (yay!), setting up an alternating subscription for board and picture books, or create your own alternating subscription with chapter books and board or picture books by buying 2 every other month subscriptions. (***Bonus tip: If you have 2 subscriptions going to the same address, we have a special code that will give you 15% off the second subscription in perpetuity! Email [email protected]!)
