FAQ

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 a very rare occurrence 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 hello@littlefeminist.com 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.  Do you ship internationally?

Due to international shipping complications during COVID-19, our subscription book club can only be shipped to the US and Canada. However, we do ship our t-shirts and our board books internationally with an additional shipping charge.

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 the first week of every month.

We use USPS Media Mail for our book shipments. During busy times USPS, unfortunately, deprioritizes book packages, so be prepared it can take up to 9-10 working days for delivery.

If you start your Little Feminist subscription towards the end of the month, this means you will receive your 2nd Little Feminist book box quicker than you may expect. If this is a problem for you, simply email hello@littlefeminist.com and we’ll see what we can do!

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. We focus on efforts finding “stories less told” – like books featuring: Black, Indigenous, People of Color, LGBT+, gender-nonconforming folx, kind boys and strong girls, and people with visible and invisible disabilities.

8. How do I submit my children’s book for your consideration?

Please read littlefeminist.com/submissions to learn what we look for and to understand our process for selecting our monthly book picks.

9. What’s your return policy?

We want you to be happy with your Little Feminist books, but if you’re not, then we offer free returns (within 14 days) with free return shipping. Please email hello@littlefeminist.com to start your return.

10. Where are you located and how can I get in touch? 

Our team lives/works around the United States. Our core team members are based in Oakland, California, and we store and ship our monthly boxes in our state’s capital. =) Our mailing address is 2625 Alcatraz Ave, #168, Berkeley, CA, 94705.
