1. Do I get to choose my own books?
Little Feminist does all the work for you (because you have enough on your plate)! Our books-of-the-month are selected by a team of educators, librarians, and parents. We spend ~6 months researching, reading, and testing each of our monthly book boxes for each age group.
2. What if I already have the book I’m sent?
Sending books families already have is very rare occurance at Little Feminist because we work so hard to feature books most folks don’t know about (and are hard to find on Amazon). That said, if a family does receive a duplicate book from us, let us know and we’ll send you a return label, and then mail you a different book to add to the bookshelf.
3. How do I cancel my subscription?
We make it as easy as possible to cancel your subscription! First, you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll take care of you. Second, you can sign into your account yourself at littlefeminist.com/my-account and change your subscription (know that your account password was emailed to you when you signed up for Little Feminist – the email subject line was “Your account on Little Feminist”).
4. How much does International delivery cost?
Cost varies from country to country. Input your shipping country at the checkout to see cost.
5. When can I expect my books to arrive?
Once you purchase a book subscription your first box will be shipped within a week. From then on, your book box will be sent at the same each month. In other words, if you subscribe to Little Feminist at the beginning of the month, you will receive your boxes towards the beginning of each month.
6. What is a Parent’s Letter?
This name came from the Parent Letter kiddos typically receive from their teachers to bring back to their parents, giving updates and feedback. In our case, Little Feminist’s book team writes our families each month to describe why we love, and ultimately picked, the book(s)-of-the-month, along with some book-specific reading tips.
7. What kind of books can I expect to receive?
Our book team curates books based on certain themes/topics. These “stories less told” include:
– Gay & Lesbian
– Kind boys / strong girls
– Multi-cultures & religions
& many more inclusive characters and themes
