Membership is $39 per month. You get four books at a time. Hold on to the books as long as you like. Send books back to us whenever you’re ready. Once we get the books back from you, we’ll send some more right away!

First time members can try Storytime out for $20 for the first month! Just use code FIRSTMONTH20 at checkout. We know you'll love it.

You can cancel, pause, or resume the service at any time online.

The short answer is however often you'd like! We'll send four books to you, one for each theme you've chosen. You send back as many as you'd like, whenever you're ready, and we'll replace them.

It usually takes 4-7 days for books to get to you. When you're ready to send books back, you can log into your account to let us know which books you plan to return. We will process your next order as soon as USPS picks up your return package.

Our team reviewed thousands of books to find the best of the best (and we’re reading more every day). Of these, about 20% ultimately make it into our collection. We don’t have special deals with publishers on books we select. We truly scour anywhere and everywhere to find the best books we can.

You shouldn’t! We’ll keep track of the books you’ve received and will make sure you don’t get any books you’ve had in the past.

With that said, we think it’s totally possible that a book you’ve already had may be relevant again to you in the future. If that’s the case and you want to read it again, send us an email at and let us know what book you’d like to get in your next shipment.

Absolutely! Once you create your account, you'll be directed to your virtual bookshelf. From there, you can peruse the topics we offer to see if they're a good fit for your family. You won't be prompted to start your membership until you request your first shipment.

We have a growing collection of topics that cover values, big events in your child’s life, and skills your child is learning. We choose our topics based on customer feedback and we're feverishly reading books to add more topics! If there’s a topic you wish we had, just scroll to the bottom of your virtual bookshelf and enter your suggestion or email us at!

With an active membership, you can read and enjoy the books for as long you’d like. If you want to purchase a book, you can contact us at for pricing information. We have plans to allow purchasing your favorite books directly from the website soon, too!

Our founders have fostered and mentored youth through this program, making it near and dear to our hearts. To learn more about this amazing program, visit
