Frequently Asked Questions
Is this a subscription?
Because there are no recurring monthly fees, Literaseeds is not a subscription. For your convenience, you will be charged one time. However, the Simple Seeds collection is sent out monthly over four months to allow families time to savor the experience.
Can I give Literaseeds as a gift?
Absolutely! In fact, Literaseeds is often purchased as a gift. To give the gift of Literaseeds, add either the Starter Pack or the full collection to your cart and then simply choose a different shipping address during checkout. Please include an email address for the recipient(s) in the notes section so that we may send a shipment confirmation when their gifts are mailed.
What’s in each pack?
Each pack contains two age-appropriate books (board books, hardcovers, or a combination), our exclusive seed cards filled with inspiring words and encouraging artwork, as well as a variety of beautiful, practical products designed to foster connection.
How soon will my Starter Pack arrive?
Starter Packs are shipped within 3 business days of your order being placed. All orders are shipped via Priority Mail, which arrives in 1-3 days after shipment.
When will the rest of the collection ship?
Grower Packs 1, 2, and 3 will ship once a month beginning in January. (Unless you order your Starter Pack in January, in which case that will be your January shipment and your Grower Packs will follow each month thereafter.) You’ll receive a shipping confirmation during the first week of each month.
What happens when I finish my shipments?
You continue to enjoy those books and beautiful products! The Literaseeds team is already working on future collections and an online community of like-minded parents, all of which you will be the first to know about.
What ages are the books for?
You will select from three age groups: 0-2 years, 1-3 years, and 3-5 years. Books for our youngest group (0-2) focus on bright, contrasting images and minimal text. Those in the 1-3 category will also receive books with colorful images, but a story—though simple—will emerge from the pages. Our oldest group (3-5) will receive books that feature more detailed illustrations and a more complex storyline that often includes a theme and resolution. If you are debating between two age groups, we recommend selecting the older one.
How do you pick your books?
The Literaseeds Team scours award lists, makes note of recommendations by well-known book junkies, and keeps tabs on new releases and well-loved classics to make its final picks. With ten kids between us, we also have a ready-made focus group for testing each title. A few of our team’s guiding principles include:
- No commercial characters (i.e. television or movie characters)
- A combination of well-loved classics and new releases
What if you send a title my family already owns?
Contact us and we’ll either send you a replacement or credit your account.
Do you offer books for older kids?
Not yet, but we’d love to. If you’re interested, drop us a line through our contact page letting us know the specific ages you’d like to see us make recommendations for. We’ll be sure to let you know when collections for older readers become available.
