Your monthly membership fee allows your family the opportunity to read and enjoy the books for as long as you want, without committing to buying any of them. We’re different than other try-before-you-buy book clubs that require you to return the books within a certain timeframe or be charged for all of them.

For us, this fee helps cover our curation, shipping, book inventory, and processing costs. Oh, and you’re making a big difference by supporting our 1-for-1 giveback where for every subscriber we donate a membership to a wonderful foster family.

We currently offer two age ranges: 3-5 and 5-7. With that said, our collection mostly consists of early and advanced picture books. We know children who are both younger and older than those age ranges and absolutely love picture books, so join if your child does!

Have mulitple kids, but in different age groups? No problem! Simply pick an age group for each book on your shelf. We're happy to mix and match age groups with each shipment!

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.

As long as you want with an active membership! Feel free to read and enjoy the books as long as you’d like. On either plan, you can keep up to five books at home and send one or all of them back when you’re ready for more.

If you find a book you just can't part with, you can buy it at the displayed discount and open up a new slot on your virtual bookshelf immediately to request a new book!

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 support@getstorytime.com!

Yes! We include an option to buy each book in your bag. Each bag is guaranteed to have $20+ in savings over Amazon, which more than covers your monthly membership fee if you choose to purchase all of the books.

For every subscriber, we sponsor a gift membership to a loving foster family in the Orange or LA County area. Studies show that foster youth face challenges with social-emotional learning, often due to trauma experienced early in life. We sincerely hope that these families can use Storytime as a tool for encouraging their children’s social-emotional growth and make a positive difference in the lives of these children.
