How it works

Little Box of Books Subscriptions

With our subscription packages, children aged 0-11 years old receive beautifully written and illustrated stories every month, that teach them about the world without them even noticing.

All our prices include shipping, you can cancel or pause your subscription any time, choose how often you pay, monthly, quarterly or every six months and if you have any questions about your order, you can get in touch with our highly responsive customer service team.

When will my order arrive?

We aim to process and post out all orders the day after we receive them. Your books should arrive every month, around the same time.

If I’m buying for more than one child can I send boxes to multiple addresses in one order?

Yes you can, as you go through the order process you can add children to your order and send them wherever you need to. Thank you for ordering multiple boxes!

Can I gift a subscription to somebody?

Yes you can! A book subscription is such a brilliant present and lots of people gift them to their loved ones. It’s a lovely way to tell someone you’re always thinking about them. Or a great gift if you don’t have a clue about what to get your friend’s kid, your nieces and nephews, Godchildren…nothing says ‘responsible Godparent’ like a monthly delivery of books.

Can I cancel my subscription?

Of course you can. You can manage your subscription by logging into your account. You can pause, stop, add subscriptions and change your address in there. If you have any problems at all, our responsive customer service team can be contacted via info@littleboxofbooks.co.uk

One off gift boxes

For birthday, Christmas, christenings or ‘just because’, you know when you send one of our gift boxes, you are giving a gift that will stay with them forever. All our boxes contain newly published children’s books, boxed up with a gift and some puzzles and activities. Our books, chosen from top publishers encourage children to dream big and recognise and realise their potential, helping them to realise that anything is possible.

Do you do a gift wrapping service?

All our books come in a branded box, packaged with beautiful wrapping paper. They are very much gift ready and will be opened with much excitement.

 

Can I choose a specific delivery date?

We try and accommodate all requests, so if you do have a specific date in mind for your gift to arrive, drop us an email at info@littleboxofbooks.co.uk and we will do what we can to make it happen

The child I’m buying for is between ages, what do I do?

As a guide, our 0-3 packages often include board books and simpler picture books, our 4-7 packages mostly include picture books with the occasional early chapter books in there for good measure, our 8-11 boxes are early chapter books to more complicated reads. If in doubt go up an age bracket. Books are always welcome and you can always keep them for when they’re ready.

Big boxes for bookshelves, schools, libraries and hospitals

Our big boxes of books are full to the brim with inclusive and representative storybooks that have been specially chosen to show how wonderfully diverse our population is. Choose from boxes of 10, 20 or 100 or get in touch for something a little more bespoke. Buy them for a primary school or nursery, for a library or hospital, or just for your bookshelves at home.

Please get in touch if you would prefer us to invoice you for your box of books and we will sort that out for you.

What do you get in your big box?

10, 20 or 100 beautiful new books, depending what you choose, that show diversity in race, culture, family set up, books that disrupt gender and disability stereotypes.

Can I choose which books go in my box?

Yes you can. Sometimes you know exactly what you want or need for your school bookshelves. Email us at info@littleboxofbooks.co.uk to find out more about our bespoke service.

How long will it take for my books to arrive?

For bigger boxes we aim to post them two weeks after we receive your order or your purchase order. Stock levels, staffing and delivery times can all impact on your book delivery so do email us if there is a particular time you would like the books delivered by.
