FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who will love these books?
These beautiful books are mindfully and lovingly chosen by our amazing Curation Team for children ages 2-5 years old.
When will my box book be delivered?
Packages will be delivered 4 times per year - in December, March, June and September.
What will be inside my box?
Three-book boxes generally include two hardback books and one paperback book. Five-book boxes generally include three hardback books and two paperback books. With each three-book or five-book delivery, in addition to your books, your gift recipient will receive a post card with discussion questions and/or a special activity idea to keep the fun and conversation going!
Occasionally, the paperback book will be replaced by a board book if our Curation Team loves the board book, feels it is age-appropriate for this age range, and the price of the board book is equal to or greater than the price of a comparable paperback book. One example of a board book we included in place of a paperback option is LOVE MAKES A FAMILY (Sophie Beer), a book that beautifully and age-appropriately opens conversation about all different kinds of families and all different ways families share love. This book is priced at $11.99, higher than the typical paperback book cost of $7.99, so we felt the value was strong for our members.
Why do you include paperback books?
While paperback books are often older books, we offer the combination of hardback and paperback books because there are wonderful paperback books centering diverse characters and families that are worth cherishing. Combining hardback and paperback books also allows us to stay within the current price points.
If you would be interested in boxes with only hardback books at a higher price point, please let us know here.
