What is Literaseeds?
Literaseeds is a monthly book club for babies through five-year-olds and their families.
What’s inside a Literaseeds box?
Each Literaseeds box contains carefully-selected, age-perfect books — three board books or two hardcovers — along with handcrafted art and goods to encourage reading together.
What kind of books can I expect?
Literaseeds sends excellent classics, current releases, and special highlights in education, illustration, cultural appreciation, and global awareness. Every book is chosen through our selection criteria and matched to the child’s age. Younger children — Baby, One, and Two — receive three board books and older children — Three, Four, and Five — receive two hardcovers.
How do you classify books?
We consider a classic book one that has been in print more than 15 years. A new or current release is a book published in the last five years. And a highlight book is one from any time period that has one or more outstanding features, typically in the areas of educational value, illustration quality, cultural diversity, or global awareness. Many — but not all — of the books we send have been featured in starred reviews or have received children’s literature awards.
Will I receive a variety of books?
Yes! Younger children will receive a classic, new, and highlight book every month. Older children will receive two books from those three categories on a consistent rotation. For example, if we send a classic and new book one month, we will send a new release and a highlight the next month and a classic and a highlight the following month.
Are all the books new?
Yes! By our definition, a classic has been in print for more than 15 years, but you will not receive a 15 year old book! Every book we send is new and in retail condition.
Why do older children receive two books instead of three?
We want to keep monthly costs reasonable for families, and hardcover books are more expensive than board books. By sending two books instead of three, hopefully even more families can discover great books and build their home libraries with us.
Is there anything besides books in the box?
Yes! Each Literaseeds box contains artwork and products from independent artists that relates to reading and connecting together.
What if I have more than one child?
We offer a 25% discount for families subscribing to multiple boxes. If that’s not an option, contact us and we may be able to arrange an alternating delivery schedule for the ages needed.
Do you offer boxes for children older than 5?
Not yet, but we hope to soon! For now, we are focusing on helping families lay a great reading foundation with their young ones. But several of our Literaseeds team members have older children and we are discovering amazing chapter books and middle grade novels as well. If you are interested in a box for older children (or if you have titles to recommend!), please reach out to us. We are excited about reading for all ages and stages!
How often will I receive Literaseeds?
Every month! Your subscription renews automatically so you don’t need to worry about missing a month either. (Gift subscriptions do not renew automatically.)
When will I receive Literaseeds?
We ship on the 15th of each month so – depending on where you live – you should receive your Literaseeds box a few days later.
How much does Literaseeds cost?
Board book subscriptions are $39.95 per month. Hardcover subscriptions are $49.95 per month. Flat-rate shipping is $5 per box.
Does Literaseeds ship internationally?
For now, Literaseeds ships only within the U.S. (Please let us know though if you’re interested in an international shipping option. We are open to the possibility.)
When will I be billed?
Subscriptions renew on the 25th of each month.
Can I skip a month?
We hate for you to miss out on great books but we understand. Contact us before your subscription renews on the 25th and we can arrange to skip a month.
How do I cancel my subscription?
We’re sorry to see you go! If you need to cancel, you may log in to your account and cancel your subscription.
What is your return policy?
Literaseeds does not accept returns or exchanges. If an item is defective or damaged in shipping, please email us a photo within 5 days of receiving it so we can arrange for replacement.
